Will you be taking applicants for long/will every email be reviewed? I'd like to include links to my previous news writing position but the site I worked for is down for a bit and it could be several hours until I can get the email sent.

When you mean 'school writing," do you just mean essays and what not or do you mean to include school newspapers and the like? I'm fairly interested, however I don't have any paid writing experience.

I would gladly write LoL related articles. I would say I have a lot of experience in writing because I'm majoring in English. I have no experience in writing for other websites, but I would like to find somewhere to start. I read LoL articles all of the time and watch a lot of streams. I have general knowledge about the game and have been playing for about a year and a half now. I'm very dedicated to League of Legends and would put all that I have into writing articles for this game.

@Messiah- I understand that you do not want homework related writing. What if I wrote a paper that was published in an academic journal by my university?

Is writing an article for the application appropriate if I feel like my past works aren't up to date with the current status of my writing skill?

Hey Messiah, just a quick question regarding the position.

1. Does it matter about the timezone or do you prefer the applicant to be based in the US/Can?

Many thanks

The more timezones the better, since he's looking for writers that can write about the news as soon it comes out.
