NAQT writer applications are now open

(Crossposted from the collegiate discussion forum.)

If you're interested in writing for NAQT, the application period is now open. We'd love to have lots of high-quality submissions to review this year. The last day to apply is July 31, but we accept on a rolling basis. Applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time they apply, and must have graduated high school this year or earlier; if you're a rising college freshman interested in staying connected to quizbowl, consider applying!

NAQT writers are currently paid up to $6.60 per tossup and $4.95 per bonus; those numbers will increase somewhat when the 2017-18 rates are set this summer.

Head over to https://www.naqt.com/jobs.html for more information. If you have any questions about the application process, shoot an email to applications@naqt.com (or andrew.hart@naqt.com if you want to contact me). Thanks!

NAQT has announced its new payment rates for 2017-18. Writers will be able to make up to $7.25 per tossup and $5.45 per bonus in the coming year, beginning on July 1. (Each payment depends on question difficulty and writer experience; contact me at andrew.hart@naqt.com or NAQT at applications@naqt.com if you'd like more specifics.)

More good news: NAQT has announced a major change that will significantly increase payments to writers who consistently produce questions. A writer who consistently produces N questions a week will get a bonus of N% on top of their writing payments, up to the maximum bonus for that writer's tier. For instance, an eligible writer who produces 30 questions a week will make a 30% bonus on each question. These bonuses will be automatically computed and paid, every writer is eligible to receive bonuses, and no additional sign-up is necessary for a writer to enter the program.

Starting July 1, NAQT writers will be able to make up to $10.15 per tossup and up to $8.47 per bonus.
