So, do you want to write for The 'Shroom? Well, you've come to the right place! Here are some steps that you should follow if you want to start writing for the paper.

  • If you need to stray from the release schedule you agreed to when applying for any reason (such as going on vacation or handling an emergency off of the wiki), be sure to contact the Core 'Shroom Staff member that you submit your sections to: we will work something out.
  • If you can't submit your section for that month, but you have a reliable friend who can fill in for you, then absolutely ask them to provide us with a section in your stead and inform your relevant team director of the arrangement.
  • Feel free to suggest new section ideas or even apply for an already filled position, for we don't mind two different perspectives on a similar subject.
  • If you have any more questions about signing up and writing for The 'Shroom, please contact Super Mario Bros..

The application form is as follows:

1.) Which position would you like to apply for?

2.) Writers have the choice to submit sections monthly, bi-monthly (every other month), or volunteer-based (one-time submission). Please select which section plan you would like to observe.

3.) The staff reserves the right to remove writers from their position if their actions reflect badly on The 'Shroom. Actions like these include extensive misbehavior on any part of the community. Do you accept this condition?

4.) Please write a full-length demo of your section. That way, we can have a bit of your work to decide if you can be on the team. Your demo section and all sections that follow must comply with our policies at The 'Shroom:Manual of Style. Failure to do so may result in the immediate rejection of your demo.

The Core Staff will have a week to review your application, and you will receive your results within a couple of days after the week passes.

If you write for The 'Shroom, feel free to add this to your userbox tower:
