If you’re looking to become one of our writers, perhaps you’d be so kind as to fill out our writer’s application? It’s cleverly written, and all we need is a few words about you and a writing sample. We consider all submissions carefully, and we’d love to hear from you.

Ceil Kessler is writing “Digging in the Dirt”, one week at a time. Before tackling that work of serial fiction, she wrote our weekly dose of fun, “Ask Ceil”. She has been writing since she was a small child, at first in kindergarten with crayons, moving to pencils in first grade, and pens shortly thereafter. She was introduced to the computer later in life, and immediately stopped writing and began to surf the internet. Years later, she realized that you could also write stuff on a computer, and that’s what she does today.

She also spends much of her time with demented people, both diagnosed and un-diagnosed. (If you want a real sense of insanity, put a writer in a room with a dementia patient for a year.)

Follow her on Twitter at @ceilck.

Christopher Exantus, reviewer.

Christopher is a young, dashing 23 year-old with hopes of making it big–or just enough to make some cash. Realizing that working at a dead-end job would be career suicide, Chris mercilessly banged his head upon his laptop computer and regularly pumps out personal reviews on film, pop-culture, and whatever else happens to catch his attention at the moment. Currently, his life goal is to become a fancy hipster living in a big, stupid hipsterish apartment in the city–and it will be awesome.

He has a blog about film, and you can follow him on Twitter at @ceexantus.

Steven E. Athay is an aspiring story designer and connoisseur of all things awesome.

Follow Steven on Twitter at @steveneathay, or read his blog Afflatus.
