Haverzine is looking for volunteers!

newsstory-haverzineHaverzine is an extraordinarily small team of just two people – myself, and the excellent Sean Ellis, who has written some of our top stories of both 2013 and 2014 including the really, really great Microsoft & Mobile┬áthree part series back in December and January. Our small team has allowed us to remain nimble, and quick, and it’s something that we hope to continue with for as long as I see Haverzine existing. An effective team is a nimble team, and a nimble team is, as a general rule of thumb, a small team.

That said, it has become clear as Haverzine has grown in the recent months, that journalism – no matter what the style, the focus, or the implied importance of that journalism – is hard work. You need to be quick on your feet, you need to be ready for the unexpected, and perhaps most importantly, you need to be available. It’s become apparent to me that a two man team can’t even remotely begin to hope to cover everything I’d believe we have a duty to covering here at Haverzine.

That’s why I’m writing today to say that, for the first time, I’m looking for help with Haverzine. If you’re a writer with a passion for technology and culture, who believes in quality over quantity and that the state of technology journalism can still be changed for the better, consider getting in touch with us and join our team. At the moment we’re looking for a couple of volunteers who share with us this vision. No prior journalism experience is required – I started off the site without even a hint of experience in the field – but it would help, of course. Our volunteers will be tasked with writing about the latest going ons in the world of technology on a day to day basis.

If interested, just hit up our contact page. Please send us your name, a little about yourself, a blurb about what you love most about our field, and a short (1-2 page), but sweet, writing sample. The writing sample doesn’t have to be related to technology – if you want to send us a short story about an alien invasion or what it’s like to be a dog, that’s totally cool.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you guys for sticking around and seeing what’s happening in the world of technology with us at Haverzine. This is a special time in technology journalism, and I believe that we have a part to play in that. Until next time.
