CHAPTER ONE- APPLICATION PROCESS FOR WRITERS
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA MAY BE ALTERED BY CHAPTER ONE FOR THE BENEFIT OF ITSELF, OR THE WRITERS OR THE APPLICANTS
Chapter One currently progresses with two types of writers; visiting writers and long-term writers.
Long term writers are individuals who apply to work with the current board of writers and they will have to make submissions when decided by the founder. These writers are important to develop this platform to the next level and they will be consistently helping Chapter One and will promote this platform on social media and will have the privilege to be called part of the board of writers and will be invited for particular events hosted by Chapter One.
Visiting writers will be applying to submit a particular submission they wish to publish on our platform. They will not be obliged by Chapter One to be consistent; it is up to their discretion at which point they submit their work to us.
All articles submitted must be not less than 350 words and the maximum word count that could be reached is 600 words (unless excused by the editor). Submissions on political, controversial or sensitive information will not be accepted. However, it is for the founder to decide if the content is suitable to be published on the website and social media.
If the content is viewed as inappropriate in that case, the writer will be given the chance to try on a different perspective and review the content.
Further information on the criteria for writing (font size, style, inclusion of references) will be addressed to the qualifying applicant by Chapter One.
Any individual can apply to be a long-term writer, however, to ensure integrity, consistency, and reliability of the writer, it will be mandatory that the applicant will be available to produce submissions when requested by the founder (at least 8 submissions authorized by the founder must be made in a period of six months). In addition to this, all long-term writers must be available to communicate with efficiently (must reply to messages and instructions) with Chapter One and the fellow writers. It is only if these requirements are satisfied, the applicant will be officially appointed as part of the board of writers.
However, any valid excuses of delay would be accepted if considered reasonable by the founder (and in some cases the other writers as well).
Nevertheless, Chapter One and its writers believe that a flexible and friendly work environment will be essential to develop this platform and we will persevere our best to inculcate such an environment.
Finally, we wish all applicants and writers all the best and we hope to see your creativity and performance.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO FILL THE APPLICATION FORM(S) USING VALID SOCIAL MEDIA USERNAMES AND USE YOUR FULL NAME. ANY APPLICATION WITH INSUFFICIENT DISCLOSURE OF THE APPLICANT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
