What information is required to apply?
Note that e-mails with just a couple of sentences or without ideas for articles will be discarded. We're looking for passionate instructors to teach passionate readers.
Applications are taken on a "first come, first served" basis. They should include any prior experience you have—as asked for on the form—as well as ideas that you have for articles.
Though pitching an article doesn't guarantee an opportunity for authorship, it will allow us to talk with you about your potential for writing for us.
