Join the TYF Team!

TYF 2013 LogoWant to be part of TYF staff?

We’re looking for more STAFF MEMBERS!

Are you an aspiring writer/journalist? Do you want to have your work published? Do you want to interact with our readers and other writers? Do you love music, film, books, TV shows and video games as much as we do and want to share your opinion with the world? If you’re a freelance writer….

THEN THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY!

Just so everyone knows: we do NOT get paid for what we do yet, so we can’t provide you with a paycheck or any type of money. We know times are rough; believe me, we do. We’re looking for individuals who love pop culture as much as we do that want to have their work published and be part of the The Young Folks team. We give you the freedoms to write and give your opinion on any topic, yet of course, massive profanity would BE an issue (the occasional F-bomb is not a problem, but dropping 20 F-bombs will not get your point across, so try to keep it all PG-13).  Besides that, you’re pretty much on your own reviewing or reporting on an article.

Positions available:

–  Entertainment News Reporter/Reviewer at TYF –

The News Reporter/Reviewer staff member will help us update the site with exclusive and newsworthy articles about the latest happenings in film, music, books, TV shows, video games. This person can also provide TYF with reviews that have not been published yet.
Minimum: 2 posts per week; maximum: as many as you would like.

– Design & Social Media Manager –

We try, no really, we try really hard to make the site look better and create new logos, new layouts, and finding new ways to attract new readers to come to the site. We’re looking for a skilled individual in all of that cool stuff: Photoshop, InDesign, etc. that also knows coding and how to use WordPress. (Basically, someone can help us with all of the aesthetics of the site.) The Design & Social Media staff member can help get the word out about The Young Folks through Social Media, in particular Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. This person can also provide TYF with reviews and articles that have not been posted yet.

If you think you got what it takes to be an awesome News Reporter & Reviewer or you think you can be a kick-ass Design & Social Media staff member:

Email: tyf@theyoungfolks.com with your info (Name, Age, Location, Desired Position), a writing sample of your work, and briefly explain how you found out about The Young Folks. (A writing sample related to music, film, tv shows, books or video games would be a plus!)
If you’re inquiring about the Design & Promotions position, email us a writing sample, as well as, a sample of design work you’ve done.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask us! If anything, you can tweet questions to @TYFofficial too.

THIS IS OPEN TO WRITERS WORLDWIDE, so don’t be shy! Just remember that all articles should be written in English!
