I am now accepting Resumes for Expert woodworkers to author articles and to do tool evaluations on new and exciting tool releases. This position has no monetary compensation at this time. However for the right person this is a way to have your ides shared with a large repeat audience and a chance to test and use new tools. Some you will get to keep some you will return to the vendor and some are owned and will be returned to me. I am accepting writing samples that will be reviewed by our new editor and will be graded by a panel of English professors. Your resume must contain your history of woodworking projects and it may be a link to your LJ gallery so we can judge the work you do. One of your writing samples should be a blog of sorts on the project you have built.
Story’s you will wright will be on projects that will be designed by our design department you will be asked to build the prototype from plans our readers will be able to download in sketch up. You will be given the sketch up and a small budget to get materials for the project. Once the article is complete the item will be sold and the funds will be used to pay you for your time and for your next project. We will handle the sales of the projects or you may choose to keep the project for your own use we will work these details out as they arise.
This position will require you to make at least one project a month and to do at least one tool review a month . You will become a feature writer the title of the position is associate editor .
