We’ve been doing the same old thing for the last 5 years, and it’s time for a major change! EAT MORE HEAT! is getting overhauled in the coming months, and we need new writers to keep this spicy ship sailing! I can’t get into specifics on how exactly the site will change right now, but I promise you we will be focusing on putting out the best spicy content you can find online.
This is as close to a classified ad as you will see on the site, so pay attention. We’re looking for several new writers. The job is difficult (because you occasionally have to burn your face off), but the requirements are simple:
- You need to know how to write.
- You need to be able to eat insanely spicy stuff.
- You need to be REALLY creative.
- You need to be critical.
Now when I say you need to know how to write that means more than just a basic understanding of the English language. Our editor Bat Brian is a high school English teacher, so at least have the ability to write at a high school level.
Allow me to elaborate on “insanely spicy stuff”. If you think habaneros are hot, then you shouldn’t write for us. Not sure if you can handle it? Try this. Go to your local grocery store, buy 3 fresh habaneros, take them home, and eat them all at once. If you take that test and feel ready for more, then you’re on the right site.
The fiery foods industry is experiencing a renaissance that is similar to what craft beer has seen in the past two decades. New chiles, new sauces, new people and new places are popping up every day. HOWEVER, they’re not always easy to find. The creativity allows us to fill in the blanks until the next big thing comes along.
Product reviews are the core of our content. We love to give praise to the primo piquant products, and we also want to be brutally honest about the weak sauce. If you don’t have the stomach to tell someone that their product sucks, then this IS NOT the site you’ve been looking for.
There are a few more things we would like to see from our writers, but it’s best to leave some things to the imagination. Now the all important question! What do you get as compensation for your writing? That all depends on your experience and preferences. We normally pay in products, but if you prefer actual money we’re happy to discuss per story compensation.
If so, email Amy with links to your published writing. No attachments please. We don’t know you that well, yet.
