Regional Contributing Editors
What do Regional Contributing Editors do?
Regional Contributing Editors help provide more editorial-type coverage that one can only do on the ground in a specific local region. In addition to reviews, we welcome interviews, preview pieces, blogs, photo and video coverages, seasonal roundups of upcoming shows, and any other ideas you may have to attract readers to our site. In addition to professional theatre, we also cover local and community productions, as well as school shows from elementary to a college level.
What qualifications do I need?
All applicants should have excellent writing skills and an interest for giving local theaters and productions some prominence on BroadwayWorld.com -- the largest theater site on the net!
Do I get paid?
This is a volunteer position. However, your compensation as a featured writer with us includes exclusive press seats to all of the shows you cover (as is standard in your area and arranged between you and the theater) and also the opportunity to be published under your own byline and publishing profile on both the local and main pages of the site for maximum exposure to our 5M+ monthly visitors. You also receive our full promotional support on the site, author page, social and site pushes, meet the staff features, and more!
What is the time requirement?
The position offers flexible hours and the convenience of working remotely from your hometown. There are no administrative duties associated with the contributorship. You simply see the shows, meet the talent, and write on your own time and terms! (Note that some theaters require a specific publishing turnaround which you will negotiate on a case-by-case basis).
Don't take our word for it! Read what some of our current writers have to say about writing for us!

"I'm proud to say that covering theater via BroadwayWorld in the Philippines has been opening doors left and right to every writer, photographer, and videographer part of our team since 2009.
