Awesomeness – we’re glad to have you! Before we can start accepting content or paying you for it, we need information that lets us set you up as a contributor. There’s the usual stuff like a photo, you blog URL and Twitter handle. There’s also some boring legal stuff and some dreaded tax stuff. It’s painless, we promise… just provide the information below, and that’s it.

  • Note: Depending upon your account type and jurisdiction, PayPal may deduct merchant fees from the monies paid to you. Riot New Media Group is not responsible for those fees.
  • Example: Part muppet and part college faculty member, Brenna Clarke Gray holds a PhD in Canadian Literature while simultaneously holding two cats named Chaucer and Swift. It’s a juggling act. Raised in small-town Ontario, Brenna has since been transported by school to the Atlantic provinces and by work to the Vancouver area, where she now lives with her stylish cyclist/webgeek husband and the aforementioned cats. When not posing by day as a for serious academic, she can be found painting her nails and watching Degrassi (through the critical lens of awesomeness). She posts about graphic narratives at Graphixia, and occasionally she remembers to update her own blog, Not That Kind of Doctor.
  • Example: Cassandra Neace teaches college students how to write essays and blogs about books and book-related goodness at Indie Reader Houston. Follow her on Twitter: @CassandraNeace
