1428 Elm is looking for paid contributors!

1428 Elm has steadily grown as FanSided’s home for all things horror coverage since the site was first launched. We know that the horror genre has a passionate fan base eager for news, opinion, and discussion, and the team here has been there to cover it all. That has always been our goal here at 1428 Elm: To give our readers the very best horror news, opinion, and discussion that we possibly can.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other horror sites with regularity? Scour message boards for all the news and discussion you can find? Ever wonder if you should write about horror yourself? We are looking to add to our group of contributors and this could be your chance to join the team.

Role Description

We like to let our team write about the aspects of the horror genre they are most passionate about. Do you like to discuss all the breaking news about upcoming horror movies and shows? Perhaps you’re interested in writing about rumors, fan theories, or news about some of your favorite actors or directors. You may even want to take a look back at some of the greatest moments in the history of horror. No matter what your pertinent interests may be, there could be a place for you here on the team at 1428 Elm!

Contributors are asked to write one post per month. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We understand that everyone has their own motivation for wanting to write about their favorite topics. No matter what your reason, this is a chance to join a team of writers who are simply passionate about horror and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us?

Submitting a proposal is easy. Just head on over FanSided.com/Join to submit your proposal today! It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged) and let us know why you’d be a fit for the site, so give it your best. Please also include a pertinent writing sample to reflect your current knowledge of horror. This can be an original article written exclusively for the purpose of your proposal or an existing article published elsewhere.

Once you have submitted your proposal, we’ll be in touch from there.

If you have any questions about the roles, please feel free to email aaron.hertzog@fansided.com or max.ogden@fansided.com at any time.
