Much Ado Is Looking for New Writers!

Much Ado About Cinema is now looking for new regular writers! As a Much Ado writer your responsibility is to publish at least once a month. This could be through group pieces or an individual piece. We are very open with the subjects on which we write. We publish features, reviews, and essays concerning all aspects of cinema, written by a young and diverse group of contributors. The work we publish here ranges from graduate-level analysis, to casual commentary on mainstream television, to festival coverage of the latest films. In our work, we emphasise diversity and inclusivity, and we wish to cast new impressions on the traditionally white, male and heterosexual world of film criticism.

We pride ourselves in being a community amongst everything else. All our writers and editors are friends who communicate daily. Being a Much Ado writer won’t just give you an opportunity to publish and attend festivals but also have a community where you can engage in conversations and discussions about cinema.

We especially encourage writers of colour and members of LGBTQ community to apply. We’d like to remind you that all positions at Much Ado are unpaid (meaning no one on our team earns any money from the website) and we don’t accept any applicants who are younger than 18. You can be from anywhere in the world as long as you have a good internet connection. Applications will close on the 22nd of July. Good luck!

Much Ado About Cinema is looking for new writers!

As many of you will know, Much Ado has grown exponentially over the past couple of months, and we’re now seeking to make our output even greater and more diverse than ever before! To do this, we need more people on board – and that’s where you guys come in.

We are now opening applications to join our team of regular writers. Ultimately, we’re looking for people who are dedicated to the same goals as we are, people who truly adore all types of cinema, and people who will thrive in a close-knit, supportive group. You do not need to have a wealth of experience – though it’s great if you do – nor do you need a million qualifications. To join us, we only ask for dedication, raw talent, and a fairly stable internet connection.

In return, we can offer the chance to get your work out there to a rapidly expanding audience. We can also provide feedback from a group of experienced writers, and the opportunity to work within a team that cares about nurturing your skills as a journalist. The Much Ado team doesn’t really have a hierarchy – at the end of the day, we’re just a group of film nerds that help each other out. I’m proud to say that we’re a friendly bunch, and I hope that our future new team members will agree with this judgement!

We especially encourage people of colour, women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, working class people, disabled people, ethnic minorities, and any other such oppressed group to apply. Though all applications will be considered on their own merit, we are particularly invested in providing a space for those voices that may be overlooked due to industry prejudice.

The application form can be found here. If you have any issues filling out the form, please contact muchadoaboutcinema@gmail.com. Applications will close on the 23rd February. Please note that this is an unpaid role – though we would love to pay our writers, the site is not monetised.

Good luck, and thank you so much for reading Much Ado!

 

 

Much Ado About Cinema: A New Blog

Hello!

This is Much Ado About Cinema, a new blog created by Megan Christopher and Dilara Elbir. We plan to write and publish articles, essays and features revolving around various aspects of cinema, including both film and television. In addition, we plan to welcome guest writers in the future, cover various film festivals, and hopefully build up a contributory space for fans of cinema.

The work we publish and welcome here will range from formal graduate-level analysis, to reviews on the latest films, to casual commentary on the industry – we plan to be accessible to as many people as possible, and we welcome any feedback on this. If there’s something you wish to see written about, please let us know! We’re always open to ideas. You can tweet us at @muchadocinema, or email us at muchadoaboutcinema@gmail.com.
