NAQT is always looking for new writers to assist in the production of our questions. We can use questions in any subject area and at any difficulty level, though we are particularly in need of additional writers of high school questions. Previous experience writing questions in our style is presumably helpful, but not necessary for acceptance.
NAQT currently pays $3.00 per tossup question and $2.30 per bonus question accepted by its editors for use in tournaments.
Players who currently compete in tournaments using NAQT questions are encouraged to become writers themselves; NAQT tracks the author of each submission to make sure writers do not hear their own questions at tournaments. Writers who are still playing may choose to write questions for other levels of play (e.g., college players could write for high school tournaments) or we can stockpile their questions for use after they graduate.
In addition, writing is often the first step to becoming an editor or even a member of NAQT.
If you would be interested in becoming a writer, please download the new writers' kit (14kB). The kit contains coding guidelines, sample questions, and instructions for submitting questions for evaluation. If you have any questions about the materials in the kit or if you have trouble accessing it, please contact us at email@example.com. We'd hate for technical details to prevent us from discovering a talented new writer.
