Two of my favorite pop culture escapes are The Godfather trilogy and The Sopranos. There are obviously many connections between the movies and the TV series, but one of my favorites was Sil’s impression of Michael Corleone, when he would crack Tony up by saying “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”
That’s a little bit how I feel about blogging. I’ve had a few half-hearted efforts to get out, but there’s always some outrage or inspiration that compels me to get back to it, if only for my own desire for catharsis. In 9+ years of writing here, though, I’ve always thought the site functioned better with multiple points of view. So once again, I’d like to offer an invitation for those interested in writing, often, rarely, or somewhere in between.
I’d like to extend an offer to readers and non-readers (who happen to be pointed to this post) who are interested in doing some writing. I’ve already asked a few people who I know would be great, but if you’re interested or know someone who should be, get in touch.
There really are only a few general requirements. I’d prefer writers who are:
- generally somewhere between moderate and far Left (but, I’m realizing, still located in reality) in their politics;
- able to write and proofread with basic command of the English language and its conventions;
- interested primarily in Montana politics, social issues, and culture with the occasional foray into domestic and international affairs welcome.
I’m especially interested in adding writers who can speak on college and education issues, the environment, and civil rights questions–as well as writers who wear Fedoras when they compose.
You can write anonymously or under your own name and the pay will be the same. Nothing.
Interested? Drop me a note.
