Last year we put out our first ever public Call for Writers. Over the past year we've added many new faces to AnandTech and we're looking to do it again. It takes a great deal of time to cover the products that we do on AnandTech and we continue to have more to review and analyze than we have time to actually review and analyze them. We need your help.

I'm continually impressed by how ridiculously smart our readers are. The comments in our articles alone are some of the most well informed content on the web. You guys know your stuff. Which is why we turn to you for writers.
 
This time around we have some more specific needs that need to be filled, although we're always looking for more writers in general. The categories we're looking for writers are below:
 
CPUs
Video Cards
Motherboards
Memory
Cooling
Smartphones
Tablets/Notebooks/Netbooks
Apple
Storage (NAND based and HDDs)
Displays
News
 
If you find that you're passionate about another topic that isn't listed, please get in touch with us. Although those are the areas we're looking for, we always need more writers across the board.
 
You'll also note that there's a new category listed above: News. In 2011 you will see the return of regular news and short form content to AnandTech. We've been doing a bit of that lately but we're looking to expand it. If you're up to date on what's going on in tech and want to keep others up to date as well, this may be a good fit for you.
 
The rules are the same as before. If you're interested in writing for AnandTech, simply email your name, location (you can write from anywhere) and a writing sample to callforwriters AT anandtech DOT com. The writing sample can be any of the following:
 
1) A sample of a product review you've written. This can be any product in the categories mentioned below, the review can follow any format and be of any length. Ultimately your content would live on AnandTech, so take a look at our reviews and how we do things and keep that in mind as you submit your sample. You don't need complete testing. If you don't have things to compare the product being reviewed to just outline how you would test, what tests you'd run, what you'd compare to and how. Obviously the more complete your sample is, the better it looks :)
 
2) A sample guide. This can be a how to, a tutorial, or anything of the sort. I'd caution you against submitting a guide to building a PC, try to do something a bit more unique.
 
3) A sample analysis piece/column/editorial. This would be something similar to our Micron ClearNAND analysis or my take on the Google Chrome OS announcement. Again, these are just examples, think of something creative on your own :)
 
4) A sample set of blog/news posts. We're looking to bring back some tech news to AT with the new site. Submit a handful of interesting stories along with your brief analysis. These can be product announcements, interesting revelations around the web, drawing attention to a forum post, etc...
 
We'll read every submission although we won't always be able to respond to each one.
 
If you enjoy the site, if you like what we do and think you'd like to be a bigger part of it - drop us a line. As always, thanks for reading!

    I would love to write for Anandtech. Alas, I am not a writer.

    Anand, please pick a wonderful writer so I can continue to lose sleep reading amazing AT articles!

    This is my dream job as well. I'll have to review my past reviews I've done just for fun, and see if any could stack up... hmmm... sure hope so. Reply

    I just wish some writer here would use the phrase "tantalizingly titillating", that would be awesome.

    Like: "This job is tantalizingly titillating".

    I haven't seen a camera review from anandtech in a long time, I'm certainly not qualified to write any, but found great value in previous reviews/guides, and would like to see them return. Reply

    I second this. I'd love to read AT's expertise in this area.

    I hope you find the right people for the job Anand. Love the site :)

    The more the merrier, I really enjoy reading articles here @ anandtech.
    Would love to see some camera reviewing and everything else. Aslong as it's about tech.
    My writing skills are horrible so this won't apply for me.

    But I hope you guys keep up the good work! I'm afraid checking this site has become an addiction :)

    Cheers from The Netherlands!

    I'd love to write for AT! But I don't have any pertinent writing samples yet :-/ (more of a political writer and photographer these days!) Reply

    I remember when I found AnandTech and was attracted here by the high quality writing and quality content that were obviously head and shoulders above anything out on the web--they made THG look about as well informed as the sales staff at Circuit City. (Not that adding me as a reader improved the average quality of the readership any... :)

    It's only thanks to RSS that I don't waste all my time constantly checking for new AT articles. Thanks Anand! And please keep up the high standards and high quality as you add new writers!

    aside: Anand, there's been talk in the forums here of problems with Sandforce SSDs, with BSODs and inability to resume from sleep. Can you clue us in with your usual insightfulness? Thanks!

    I thought Sandforce BSOD/sleep issues were old news. I read about them before I bought mine a couple months ago, and experienced the problems. I just decided not to sleep my machine anymore. Full-off or full-on. A firmware update may eventually fix it, but I'm not too worried. Reply
