NAQT is now accepting writer applications

We can use questions in any subject area and at any difficulty level, though we are particularly in need of additional writers of high school and middle school questions. Previous experience writing questions in our style is helpful, but not necessary for acceptance.

NAQT currently pays up to $6.00 per tossup question and up to $4.50 per bonus question accepted by its editors for use in tournaments. The rate depends on the target difficulty of the question and the writer’s experience.
