Nice Move

The TFM News Team is looking to expand. We’re looking for talented fraternity guys and sorority girls to contribute to TFM News on a regular basis. Are you an aspiring writer? Do you like to read the news? Do you like to make fun of the news? Does no one appreciate your inherent need to work a joke about hookers into a fiscal cliff discussion? Well we do, and TFM News is just the place for you.

At this point you probably have some questions. Let me go ahead and answer them for you.

___

- How do I apply to be a contributing writer for the illustrious TFM News Team?

Simple. Send your résumé , a writing sample (or several), and any other information you’d like us to know to Dillon@Grandex.co. (That is .co, not .com).

- Do I get paid?

Yes, in fact, you do. If you’re accepted into the TFM News Team and prove yourself to a be a consistent and quality writer, then after a short probationary period you will be paid $15 per news story. That might not seem like much, but if you write five stories a week that’s $75, and that goes a LONG way in college town bars.

“There is no nobler pursuit of writing than to make enough money to get blackout drunk.” – Ernest Hemingway…probably.

- What should I write about?

Basically whatever you want. Though you will need to run your story ideas by the TFM News editors, most topics are fair game. If the story interests you, then it’s probably worth writing. After all, you are a part of the target audience, so what interests you is important. That said, we do put special emphasis on college and Greek Life related stories. So if there is a funny story from your school, write about it (but we aren’t interested in gossip). If there is an obnoxious GDI rant about Greek Life in your college’s student newspaper, feel free to rip it apart.

We put a premium on two things at TFM News: Writing about the news from a fraternity/sorority point of view, and writing about college and Greek Life news stories.

- How long are news stories supposed to be?

There is no actual limit, but most news stories sit between 250 and 500 words (not counting excerpts from sources).

- Can I write columns too?

Yes, if you think of a topic you can feel free to write a column, but we want your main focus to be on TFM News.

- Will a lot of people be reading my work?

Yes. TFM gets 1.5 million unique visitors a month, and TFM News is one of the main traffic drivers. A lot of eyes will be on what you write.

If you’re an aspiring journalist and/or comedy writer who wants to get their work out there and may or may not need some extra booze money, then this is absolutely the job for you. Email your résumé, a writing sample, and any other information you would like us to have to Dillon@Grandex.co. Apply today!

    I feel that this is a good opportunity to run my idea for a new weekly column by you. It’s called “The Life and Times of My Pecker.” Each story will be filled with exciting events, all of which involve my johnson. I know you’re excited so I took the liberty to email a few samples to you. Check your inbox bud.

    -I’ll do it, but Corningstone comes off the news team. It’s anchorman, not anchor lady. She can stay around the office for woman purposes, though.
    -Also, $75/week for 1250 words? BULLSPIT! Whatever Dorn is making, I want double.
    -I won’t follow any guidelines on staying PC (even TFM’s version of PC). You’ll probably end up with a few lawsuits by the time I call it quits.
    -And this one is serious, whoever you actually do hire should write about politics. I don’t know why y’all decided to avoid political matters after the election was lost, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still educate the idiots. Because as much as liberals are dumbasses, there’s a lot of stupid “conservatives” too that bring the rest of us down.

    THESE ARE MY DEMANDS.

    I’ll apply if you waive the resumé requirement. I’ll whip up some dick and poop jokes, but there’s absolutely no reason you should care about my GPA or whatever the hell goes into a resumé

    $15 a story? Is this the male equivalent of stripping for “tuition?” Do you know how much I’m going to spend on Adderall just to write this shit. I can make more writing essays of the same length. We’re not fucking peasants here.
