You eagerly await your daily email newsletter's appearance in your inbox, you rapturously pore over its contents, and Weekend Notes is your go-to internet resource for all things related to leisure in your city. You're a social butterfly with your ear to the ground when it comes to fun activities and happening places and you like to share your experiences of what's going down around town. You're a keen photographer who snap-happily gets out and about, documenting your adventures. You're a foodie who knows the best places to eat in your city. Do any of these sound like you? Then why aren't you writing for us?
[ADVERT]There are many voices, opinions, enthusiasts and 'amateur experts' in the world, and we want our website to reflect as many of them as possible. There is a cornucopia of activities, restaurants, festivals, parks, concerts, walks, beaches, theatre, art galleries, tourist attractions, pubs, museums, sales, wineries, markets, gardens, and any number of opportunities for fun and adventure awaiting you right outside your front door, if you only know where to look. Well, Weekend Notes is the place to look, and we need your help to get this information out there.
So, what's stopping you?
Do you think you can't write? You may not be a writing professional or the next James Joyce (if you ask me, that's a good thing) but Weekend Notes contributors are a diverse group, and we have lots of enthusiastic amateurs on board. If you can tell a full stop from an ampersand (that's one of these - &), know the difference between a verb (a doing word) and a noun (a naming word), and are willing to take advice, we have a friendly and helpful team of editors who will work with you to produce informative and entertaining articles. Our writers are also keen to share their knowledge, experience and tips through our very own writers' forum.
Writer's Block can no longer be an excuse, either. Our own Shannon Meyerkort tells you how to fix it in her article here
. She has also shared her experience to instruct us How to Write a Top Weekend Notes Article
. See, not as hard as you thought it was, is it?
And don't think it's a difficult or complicated process to apply. You can apply to write for us here

Still looking for reasons to apply? How about getting paid to write about what you like doing, gaining experience as a paid writer (looks good on your resume), and getting free invitations to things like movie screenings and meals at restaurants? If all that sounds compelling, that's because it is.
From my own experience I can say that becoming a writer for Weekend Notes was one of the best decisions I ever made. It's great to have a platform for my writing, the Weekend Notes community of writers and editors is a friendly and supportive community to be a part of, and I get paid to do what I love. That's a Win-Win situation, if ever there was one.
