So you want to write for Nerd Like You!
We don’t blame you, as it is a pretty awesome thing to do. If you have a nerdy passion and you are able to string a fairly decent sentence together then you could just be the kind of writer we are looking for.
Read on to find out how you can become one of the NLY team.
Read NLY to get a feel for the style and content
You can’t produce quality NLY-style articles if you don’t have a good feel for the way we write and the kind of content that falls within the NLY remit. We don’t have a set style as our writers all have their own voice, but we do have a general style of how we address things.
NLY’s articles are:
- Down to Earth
We don’t lob massively pretentious words in the faces of our readers. We always give honest opinions and we don’t take back-handers. Unless we are having a bit of a laugh (and hopefully that will be clear) we don’t say things we don’t mean and can’t back-up.
So if that has whet your appetite and you want to submit, this is what you need to do:
- With a quick note explaining who you are and why you want to write for NLY
- A sample or 2 of your work (feature/review/blog post – anything really as long as it conveys your writing style)
- A pitch or 2 for article ideas
We will read every submission and we aim to get back to you within the week.
