TV and Movie Theories Writer, Inverse

Remote
Editorial – Inverse
Part-time
Inverse has an immediate opening for a writer who’s got a special talent for theorizing about the in-world possibilities of the TV shows and movie franchises we love to watch, read, and think about. We’re enthusiastic about offering thought-provoking theories to our audience between episodes. If you’re a critical thinker who loves to report on fan theories and come up with your own, please get in touch. This spring brings the return of Westworld, a new slate of movies about superheroes (Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman 1984, Black Widow), and alternate universes (A Quiet Place: Part II, Snowpiercer, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Discovery Season 3, etc.), making now a great time to join our team of nerds who love to report on and have a think about in-world possibilities.

Responsibilities

    • Report on 2-3 theories a day as pitched or assigned by an Inverse editor
    • Pitch your own theories each week
    • Contribute to collaborative feature projects (guides, roundups, lists, etc.)
    • Write critical assessments of episodes or films where needed.

Requirements

    • 1-2 years’ experience writing about TV and movies
    • Demonstrated ability to fully defend your theories. (We’ll ask you to test one out)
    • Find 2-3 theories per shift being bandied about online and gauge which ones are worth writing about, developing into something more ambitious, or ignoring
