Looking for 1-2 writers, and 1-2 people who frequent Disney/Universal. If interested, please reply. If any questions. Please reply.

Yes. I am being as blunt and short with this as possible. :lol:

I frequent Universal, but it's every two weeks or so, and I'm in pursuit of a new SD card since I lost the one I had. I am, however, in photography classes so I'm good with composition shots, and I would love to do updates once complications go away. Oh, I guess I should say that I have a 12.1mp Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W310.

I'm also readily available to write since I'm always on here during school for a period (study hall) and all I ever do is draw. And the one thing about which I can type for pages and pages is theme parks, so you needn't worry about length with me.

:)

I am frequent Universal, I go on EVERY Sunday, Sometimes on Saturday. I take pictures and write about Universal after every week I go. I have a Cannon Powershot SX100IS, 8.0 Mega-pixels. I am always on the computer everyday so I am always available.
Thanks

I love to write, although I will say I might not be your best candidate - I'm juggling school and FCAT is coming up, and I haven't been to the parks in a while. But if you need me just message me!

I am interested in writing, and I go to Universal pretty frequently (Almost always at least once a month). I can take pictures but my camera really isn't that good, it's a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph.

Hey Briman, I love to write, especially about theme parks as you have seen the past year :lol:

Let me know if you need a new column/blog/articles etc..

Alright, people interested in writing, I'd like to see the skills. So send an article about any topic to contacts@orlandounited.com. Just to clarify, we are looking for writers who can write about all theme parks in Orlando, not just one specific resort.

As far as correspondents, when I say Disney/Universal, I mean visit both parks so unfortunately just going to Universal isn't the help we are looking for. Also, for correspondents, we are looking for people who are 18 and older.

Any theme park topic right?

I'm sure you wouldn't want an article regarding the life cycles of mosquitos :lol:

I have both Universal and Disney APs and I go at least once a month(if not more). I am 19 years old. If everything goes according to plan next week (which I am sure it will), I will be at MK so I can grab a few shots of FLE as well as other refurb projects going on around the park.

I received A's on the past 4 college English courses I've taken. Is that good enough?

When's the deadline for the example article?

Hey BriMan, are you going to be announcing those who are going to be writers tomorrow or will you just send information through a PM/email?

BriMan

We will send something to the members and confirm before we announce anything.

A note I forgot to mention on my submission, is since there was a 500 character limit through PM I ended up deleting one whole paragraph and a couple of sentences to make sure it fit :lol:

Nah, it's okay. If you have an opening in the summer I'll submit something, but the combination of homework, a new job, volunteer work and already spending too much time sitting behind my laptop is enough for now.
