Hello friends,

Due to the current roster expansion it's become increasingly difficult for our writers staff to cover shows on a consistent basis and continue to book everyone as they would desire to be booked. We are looking for back up writers who can be assigned a minimum of 2 matches a week (on average) and can turn in matches in a consistent and timely basis.

The formula of matches is important, we want your matches to be presented by how the average EAW match is meant to look like, so if you are not familiar with the type of match writing here in EAW you can look on any of the shows at new.eawrestling.com underneath the shows or archives tab. The format should be fairly easy to emulate.

If you are able to assist us, you can PM myself or CM Banks on discord, or simply private message me here on the forum offering your services, and I'll match you up with a writer to work alongside with. We've had people reach out to the board before about backup opportunities, but we haven't been able to keep track of that well these last couple of weeks, so if you've reached out before I do ask that you shoot me another message. We greatly appreciate anybody willing to help, so make sure to reach out again by discord PM or forum PM. You can leave a comment in the thread too but it'll be preferable if you contact us privately.

Thanks

- DDD

I can offer but I can't promise I'll be available every week since I have a new full time job starting soon.

Hey, everyone! EAW is in constant need of backup writers, but an important thing is to consider is to try to emulate the format matches and such are in on posted shows. We want everything to be as seamless as possible and all mesh together so that nothing looks out of order regardless of who writes it. That kind of synchronicity isn't hard to attain with a little look at each show's script, and if not, the main writer of whatever brand you want to backup write for can give you the rundown. This is a perfect time of year for backup writers, so I heartily encourage everybody to go shoot up Ronn Banks' PMs and let 'em know.
:mjgrin:

As we head into Pain for Pride season soon, things are going to get crazier and crazier! We need all the help we can get so if you want to take part in helping produce some of the content we put out around here, there’s no better time to hop in!

If anyone even has thought about writing, please get in touch, a couple extra hands are needed, some of the backups are being ran ragged. The shows don't write themselves, and all the head writers have commitments, be they family, work, or both. We do this for you guys to have great shows to enjoy and see the story of your characters play out, but it's not easy. So, please help. Anything you can do is appreciated, because it's one step closer to a completed show.

It's true I'm literally being worked to death in sweatshop-like conditions as a backup writer. Y'all gotta sign up or idk how much more torture I can take :mjcry:

New season, new backup writers needed. Our respective shows will be longer than ever before due to the larger roster sizes post-draft, especially with the brands taking Empire's old roster members. That means more matches and segs will be put on the cards so that every member can be involved in a respective storyline or angle. We can use all the help we can get in order to properly execute these things. Please hit us up if you're interested.

For those who have ever considered this or even are just looking to grow your writing skills, let me be the first to iterate how working with show production helps you. It helps you to stop and think about writing in different ways when you are working on someone else’s story. It will help you look and find ways to understand things from alternative perspectives which will also help your promo writing as you learn new ways to expound on what you say. Not to mention the sense of joy you get when people see your match and enjoy it, to be the one who produces a moment that can be very meaningful to the work someone has put in.

Working as a backup/staff writer is something that will help you grow and give you an entirely different feeling of satisfaction. I recommend if you’ve ever considered it, go ahead and take a shot. Contact Ronn and try being part of a production team.

I know this post gets bumped up a lot but I just wanted to reiterate to everyone to go up and read the posts that have been made. It’s thanks to back ups that these shows happen. They are integral to our operation. And the level of growth you’ll find as a writer both in promos and just overall in your creative process from getting involved on a production level is something you wouldn’t believe if you’ve never been a part of it. It does force you to expand your mind and consider things from other perspectives and opens your eyes to even more avenues as a writer. Not to mention you get the chance to really make your mark on the shows aside from just your promos. When Scott first talked to me about writing matches I had no idea what I was doing and I basically was writing nothing but I just kept taking assignments and I was just afforded the chance to write a PFP main event this season. The kind of match that gets reposted and brought back from the history archives for years to come. It doesn’t take much. Just a little effort and working with the head writer and you’ll be great before you know it. If there’s ever been half a thought about it in your head, nows the time to give it a chance.
