View Full Version : Recruiting "PAW Magazine Staff"

Jun 5th, 2004, 08:28 AM
PAW will be introducing a new installment - that is the PAW Monthly Magazine that will be posted in the PAW forum at the end of each month and will be available for PAW players to read.

The magazine will be quite in depth, covering the results of that month, quotes, interviews, rankings, prize money/other stats, “from the Editor”, Previews, Instruction, Sidelines (off-court gossip) and other features that are set to entertain PAW players.

I will be the chief editor and will post the Magazine each month, however we need a team of writers that can contribute to the Magazine. Credit will obviously be given to their work.

We are looking for a permanent team of around four who can work to publish articles each month. We will also have occassional writers who can write an article here and there. We will discuss what we will be looking for each month.

If you are interested please post in this thread, I promise that everyone who wants to contribute will be given this opportunity in the upcoming publications.

I am also looking for a PAW player who can post a monthly column/feature for each issue, this member should be efficient and organized, again if you are interested in this job, please state so by replying.

Cheers :wavey:

Since this is the inaugural publication, I will be setting the ideas just for last month’s magazine (MAY).

The following features we will be looking at: :)

Prizemoney – bgbgbg
Ranking/Race risers/fallers (need someone to analyse the ranking shifts this month in some detail)
Instruction (need someone to write an article, this week the theme will be – HOW TO REGROUP AFTER A SLOW START IN PAW)
An interview with Nathan27 - (winner of Rome) (we need someone to pm him and Interview him)
Feature - Who is the greatest PAW player of all time (I will write this)
Sidelines – we need several “magazine staff” to write some short articles on off/on-court gossip which should be in some way related to PAW.
Quotes (I will compile them for this issue)
2 Special Features (I will compile this for this issue)
PAW Wimbledon Preview (I will compile this for this issue)
The Special Column I mentioned above earlier – this month’s theme – 10 reasons why PAW rules (need the person who will be the monthly writer to do this)
An interview with “Mr PAW” – WTA Handicapper (I will compile this for this issue)

+ any other ideas (although this will probably be enough for this month, you can post them here)

SpikeyAidanm
Jun 5th, 2004, 08:32 AM
Another note, after writing the article/completing the interview... send them to me by pm and I will compile them and post them as a "Magazine." Since May has already finished we want this issue to be posted ASAP :)

SpikeyAidanm
Jun 5th, 2004, 09:12 AM
bionic71 has expressed an interest and will be writing a feature article for the JUNE issue :)

crazillo
Jun 5th, 2004, 10:23 AM
I´d like to write some sideline storys, like one or two each month. If u agree, I will wirte this month about the players whop look forward to the football EM in Holland.

One more idea would be to include some lockerroom sotries.

Sascha :wavey:

SpikeyAidanm
Jun 5th, 2004, 10:30 AM
Cheers Sascja, start writing and then pm me them and I will compile the issue! :D

Jun 5th, 2004, 01:45 PM
I have another idea. Fill in some profiles of PAW players. Like the winner of an important tournbey or the one who won the PAW award of the month. We will PM this person and we fill in all the PAW realted information, while he can fill in his personal preferences.

crazillo
Jun 5th, 2004, 01:53 PM
I hope u will like the idea Spikey.

SpikeyAidanm
Jun 5th, 2004, 01:54 PM
Good idea Saschas, can I make you responsible for pming the player? :)

crazillo
Jun 5th, 2004, 01:57 PM
:lol: OK, maybe you can give me an empty form where I can fill in the information? For then Mai edition, I will need the Prize Money stats updated. What information shall I include?

Mateo Mathieu
Jun 5th, 2004, 01:59 PM
Loved the idea, Spikey! :hearts:

SpikeyAidanm
Jun 5th, 2004, 02:01 PM
:lol: OK, maybe you can give me an empty form where I can fill in the information? For then Mai edition, I will need the Prize Money stats updated. What information shall I include?

just the basic info in the standard player profile (like yours), results etc...

Glad you like the idea Matt :wavey:

crazillo
Jun 5th, 2004, 02:02 PM
So I will include all QF, SF and F results as Highlights. Can u give me a blank one so that I can fill it in?

ok then, thanks Nexeo :wavey:

Hayato
Jul 7th, 2004, 04:22 AM
Spikey, i have been thinking. Maybe we should only have one magazine every three months? So this issue can be for May, June and July. it would be easier and there could be more articles/interviews e.t.c for every issue.

thanks :wavey:

Hayato
Jul 7th, 2004, 06:52 AM
MANY MORE ARTICLES NEEDED!!!!! WE ONLY HAVE AROUND 10! (including cover)

SpikeyAidanm
Jul 7th, 2004, 06:55 AM
I will post the Magazine this weekend (if everything goes to plan :o ) :)

MORE ARTICLES NEEDED FROM ANY OF YOU, ANYTHING PAW RELATED, WOULD BE MORE THAN APPRECIATED.

And the PAW Magazine will come out every 3 months as Rossana Fan mentioned ^there :)

Hayato
Jul 7th, 2004, 06:57 AM
:wavey: :) More articles! oh and please dont use the excuse of your english not being good enough ;) :lol: :p

SpikeyAidanm
Jul 7th, 2004, 07:01 AM
Yes, I lot of you underestimate your English, and it is boring reading articles from the same ppl all the time :p , plus I'm thinking of a way of rewarding all contributors :)

Hayato
Jul 7th, 2004, 07:06 AM
lol, bgbgbg and sandg both said their english wasn't that good. it would be fun to read articles by people who's english is their second language, and it would be good education for them ;) ;) ;)

please someone write an article!

Hayato
Jul 7th, 2004, 07:10 AM
someone could do a Ranking/Race risers/fallers for the latest rankings if spikey isn't already doing that? :wavey: :D

Hayato
Jul 7th, 2004, 10:26 PM

James
Jul 8th, 2004, 08:55 AM
My wife would be interested in doing an article, a sort of "Life with James on the PAW Tour", describing a week on the PAW tour coaching me, which you can understand is quite an achievement in itself. I don't know if that's the kind of thing you are looking for, though.

SpikeyAidanm
Jul 8th, 2004, 08:57 AM
Of course, we are looking for any articles! James, that would be great!
