Did you know that you could make upwards to $1,500 a month writing for The Watercraft Journal by putting in an extra hour or two a day worth of work? Seriously, it’s that easy. Because The Watercraft Journal continues its aggressive industry-leading daily (Monday-through-Friday) publishing schedule, and we need as much help as we can get to continue to entertain and inform our ever-growing readership, we’re excited to announce that we’re hiring!

Right now, The Watercraft Journal needs to fill a very important position: a Freestyle/Freeride Editor! That’s right, we’re looking for self-motivated, dedicated enthusiasts looking to work with the single most popular PWC magazine in North America to help spread the word about our industry’s best and brightest builders, brands and manufacturers, as well as help provide a focused spotlight on our sport’s best freeride/freestyle riders, manufacturers and events!

And don't worry about your writing skill, syntax or grammar. That's why we have an Editor. We just need to get the word out, and your help to make that happen. Here are the details:

Freeride/Freestyle Editor
Shaw Group Media, the publisher of The Watercraft Journal (watercraftjournal.com) is looking a self-motivated, energetic person to hire as Freestyle/Freeride Editor. The F/F Editor must have strong ties to this segment of the personal watercraft (PWC) industry, be familiar with proper terminology, technology and persons/companies therein. The F/F Editor should be very familiar with this subject, and be able to field questions as they come in.

The F/F Editor doesn’t necessarily need to attend each and every event (but personal attendance is strongly encouraged). Likewise, the F/F Editor should be personally responsible for providing most F/F-specific news and coverage, but doesn’t need to be the sole contributor to The Watercraft Journal’s F/F coverage. The F/F Editor will work closely with the rest of the Editorial and Sales teams to develop new feature content and welcome in F/F-specific potential advertisers.

Riding ability, photographic talent or writing experience is appreciated and encouraged, but not necessarily mandatory.

The Freeride/Freestyle Editor position is a 1099 subcontractor position and will be paid twice a month per a predetermined scale for each written article. There will be a 90-day trial period for every applicant to evaluate work ethic, determination and commitment to providing superior, reliable freeride/freestyle PWC content for The Watercraft Journal audience.

All serious inquires are to email introductory “cover letter” and resume to kevin.shaw@shawgroupmedia.com.

GASKETS FOR CHAMP BRAP!
Ya, great opportunity for someone like Mark Gomez or the like that travels all the time to events. They could take some pics and write up a nice article, support the sport and their bottom line as well!

Mark has helped us out before - he's just too busy to produce the quantity of freestyle/freeride/standup coverage that this sport needs. And the position doesn't require you to travel all over the planet - just to be aware of what events/news are happening and help us report on it.
