8Asians.com is looking for MORE writers!

OK, this is where I put my editorial hat on again: Here at 8 Asians, we’re always looking for interesting, fresh voices to complement the diversity of the writers on this collaborative blog.

That’s just a fancy way of saying, “we’re looking to increase our pool of writers.” And we’re looking for all types of writers: young or old, people that talk about political and activism issues to pop culture, conversationalists to journalists, feminist or… well, not. All that we ask is to keep the focus on one of two things:

  • Blog posts that link to Asian-American people/issues, and your opinions about the matter
  • Blog posts that link to general websites, and your opinions of it, as an Asian-American

But Ernie, you say to yourself: there are already 8 Asians! Well, technically there are ten, and a range of opinions keeps content fresh. I plan on adding a group of associate writers, and cycle people in when some of the existing eight have the rest of their lives to lead. (Or maybe I’ll make a competition where they’ll vote each other off Survivor style. I’m only half-kidding.) So if you’re interested in writing for 8 Asians, contact us with the following information:

  • A little bit of information about yourself (bio, blog/journal, if you have one)
  • Two sample posts, as if you were already writing for 8 Asians
  • A post on 8Asians.com that you feel was the “best content”
  • Suggestions as to how we can improve the site

If you guys have any questions, drop a comment and I’ll try to answer as soon as I can.
