Now "hiring" correspondents

UFN is actively looking for genre fans around the world who would like to add their voices to this blog. We can’t pay anything (yet), but that could change as UFN grows over the years to come. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither were the top websites and blogs that started small and have become the industry’s powerhouses, like Ain’t It Cool News.

Ideally, we would like female correspondents because women need greater representation in the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and have a unique perspective on books, shows, and video games. However, any aspiring or veteran writer may apply.

Depending on your experience, reliability and skill, one benefit UFN may be able to offer is free exclusive press pass access to your favorite events, including Comic-Con San Diego, Dragon*Con, Arisia, Marcon, WonderCon, Big Apple Comic Con, The Saturn Awards, movie premieres and parties, or any of hundreds of other conventions and press events across the country. A press pass is your free ticket in, and gains you special access to red-carpet press events and interviews so that you can cover them fully for our readers here at UFN.

Requirements: You must demonstrate superior writing skills, must be able to conduct a professional interview with top industry talent, must be reliable and trustworthy, and must provide your own equipment.

When contacting us, please explain why you would like to blog for UFN, list your qualifications, and we’ll go from there. Good luck, and Excelsior!
