The About.com Contributing Writers program was created to help us cover topics that may not be broad enough for a full GuideSite. Contributing Writers work alongside our Guides, covering specific subtopics that fall within the larger topic areas of our GuideSites. They are responsible for producing a certain amount of content (articles or blog posts) per month on that subtopic. They are not responsible for managing or maintaining a full GuideSite.
We are currently evaluating candidates to write on the following topics:
- Playing and Coaching (About Football http://football.about.com)
- Antique Furniture (About Antiques http://antiques.about.com)
- Legal Issues (About Single Parents http://singleparents.about.com/)
- Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Scene (About Manhattan http://manhattan.about.com)
