Call for Contributors! DIY, Tutorials, Reviews, Interviews – Applications Closed

Writers/Creatives Contributors Needed!

I am finally to the point of hiring some content contributors! I have planned, saving, plotting, updating and so much more for the last 8 months!  This process has been long with a lot of going back to the “drawing board” to make sure that I have all my i’s dotted and t’s crossed. I wanted to save up and make sure that those that provide content to the site are paid for their time.

“Contributor Exposure vs. Contributor Paid”

No.. exposure doesn’t pay your bills. Exposure doesn’t make me feel like I am helping you build your portfolio. Paying you in exposure is something that would make me feel bad. That is why I have waited till I had a little nest egg to pay my contributors for their time and energy. You will get exposure as well as payment, which, to me is a win-win for the both of us.

Details

Right now building a list of those that would like to be considered, you do not have to have experience as a blogger. Even if you have not been a contributor before, that is OK,  I want people who have passion be creative and want to help others find their own creative passion. This blog needs those that want to excite and encourage people to be creative in a fun environment.

So, you have decided to try your hand as a content creator!

Final Process

When will you stop taking applications?
I will keep the application process open until Sunday, September 10 at 5 PM EST.

Once the application process has closed. I will take a look at all the applications and information. I will contact everyone regardless if you made this call out or not. Right now I am looking for 2 people who can commit to one article a month, 2-3 that can do bi monthly, and 3-5 that can commit to pop-up content. I am looking for all aspects of fiber arts, cooking/baking, DIY, tutorials, video content, pattern/book reviews, interviews with designers (fabric, patterns, notions etc). My goal is to be a resource for those that have an interest in fiber arts!

Pay 

Payments will be on a sliding scale depending on the project type, video vs. photo’s, review vs DIY/tutorial, interview etc. Also, I am going to start carrying some limited fabrics and patterns soon, I am starting the ordering process now for that. If I need a pattern reviewed, I will send fabric and pattern and you will be compensated in fabric/pattern and some monetary payment as well.

We will discuss content payment, once the contributors have been chosen and we work out the commitment details.

Like I said. I don’t want to take advantage of anyone and in this industry we need creative inspiration from beginner creatives to advance.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
