“My name is Zayin Allen and I’m a senior at Delaware State University looking for writing opportunities relevant to my interests to boost my portfolio. I have written for my school newspaper in the past, but, mostly current events articles. My interests lie with covering/reviewing movies and TV. I am a self-motivated, outspoken, opinionated writer and person. I am looking for opportunities to hone my craft and build a career as an entertainment writer.
Any time I see a film or a TV show, whether I love it or hate it, the first thing that I have to do is tell someone about it and discuss the hits and misses, the visuals, the dialogue, and every little detail.
I would love the opportunity to do that in an environment where I can better find my voice, hone my craft, and gain experience. I understand that I have to start somewhere. I am willing to put in the work and, since I already read your site, for me there is no better place. I am willing to do written pieces and video reaction/reviews for the site.
I can e-mail you some of the articles that I have written for my college paper, and I can send you some spec reviews that I wrote about “Punisher” and “The Runaways” to show you what I am capable of. I am available to start writing for you immediately and am open to fill in gaps in TV and film reviews. I love comic book-related TV and films. I also like horror and some action. I really hope that I am able to join your staff or at least intern.
Thanks for your time,
Zayin Allen ”
(Who can resist? Zayin is going to put together some thoughts on various film and TV movies and shows from a slightly less “mature” POV, and we might have a little “Point/Counterpoint” going on, as I am more than happy to leave the World Of Marvel to Zayin’s observations. Right now, I’m waiting for a head shot of the budding journalist to accompany his bio, which I seem to have lost in my IPhone (Where does it go after you read it on your phone? Do elves eat it? What?) I’d put a graphic in here with the piece we both have written on the Golden Globes, but that piece, too, has gone up in smoke for the moment, as I am en route to various locations by car and my opportunities to write on a “good” computer have been severely impacted. Not only that, but I swear that AOL is now equivalent to the U.S. Post Office. It takes days for mail to appear, if it does appear.)
Bear with me, Zayin and Public, and we’ll get some interesting “new” impressions. And welcome.
