Happy Friday, readers! We need your help.
Over the past several weeks, we’ve been putting a group of brave, talented individuals through the paces as part of Project Staff Writer. We’re bringing on five new Staff Writers, and for the past two weeks, you’ve seen our nine finalists make their debut posts.
This was just the latest challenge; previously, PSW contestants have had to write exactly 500-word recaps, charm us with their email communication, describe themselves with a .gif (hard G, period), and demonstrate in myriad ways how well they can spin a phrase in a way that will get you, our dear readers, interested.
The contestants have collectively and individual impressed us, and we have thrown random bonus points, and bonus point gathering opportunities, at them at various points of the competition. We’re evil like that.
Now, we want your input. Each of the nine finalists is listed below, with links to their two competition posts. We want you to pick the one you like best. Each vote will count as one point towards their final scores. You can only vote for one.
Over the next week, Pileofmonkeys, Slay Belle, Hillary, and I will be locking ourselves into the underground glitter bunker with a selection of box wines, Twizzlers, and peanut butter toast to determine who will be named one of the Fuck Yeah Five Staff Writers.
Contestant #3 – Natasha: Lunchtime Poll: Favorite Female Video Game Character and Feminist Bollywood: Jab We Met.
Contestant #8 –Anne: Lunchtime Poll: Exhaustion and Book Reflections: “Queen of America” and “Revolution.”
