Write For Us
Ready Steady Cut is one of the web’s fastest-growing entertainment sites, especially in the streaming platforms arena. Our mission statement is to keep on growing and making our readers aware of the best streaming content.
To help us do that, we’re currently looking to expand our team. We pride ourselves in providing engaging content, and we do that through a vibrant team ethos. The fact is, we enjoy what we do with a passion for all things pop culture.
Does it sound like you’d enjoy it too? If you are up for a fun challenge and want to be part of a constantly evolving project, then let us know. What we can provide is a platform, one supported by a dedicated team, extensive social media promotion, an editorial process, and fellow writers who are fans first, just like you.
Standards and expectations
We are not dictators. Our expectation is for our writers to have a level of writing style and competency, and to enjoy what they do. Writers should abide by the editorial process (don’t worry, we have style guides!). We’d also expect our writers to promote their own work alongside our social media efforts, and to help out with the rest of the team in that regard.
Members of the team will need to join our free team-management mobile application “Slack”, so you can collaborate with us. It is available on desktop, iOS, and Android, so this should be very simple. Apart from that, we do not require much more. A sense of humour is not required but is definitely encouraged!
The major perk is to be part of a growing platform that grows its audience on a weekly/monthly basis. We also provide press access to events and screenings and advanced review copies for our critics. Another perk (for the film/TV writers) is that you will be able to join (whenever you feel free) our weekly podcast and voice your Film & TV commentary audibly (which is fun!).
How to apply
When you introduce yourself, please briefly explain to us why you would like to be involved, and what you think you’d bring to the team. We’d also like to see a 500-word writing sample, and/or links to your other published or personal work. If we like what we see, we will bring you onboard, introduce you to the team, and provide you with the general house rules.
Thank you for reading, and we look forward to hearing from you!
