Asylum.com, which bills itself as "the largest men’s lifestyle site on the Web," is seeking freelance journalists to contribute stories about weird news, science, food, true crime, sex, politics, video games, entertainment and/or travel.
"We’re looking for writers who can report original stories and humorously analyze new trends -- everything from the latest wave of serial killer memorabilia sites to new concoctions that bring oversize donuts to amazing heights," the ad states. "We’re also looking for writers who can cover local stories in places such as Los Angeles, Florida, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, New Orleans and Austin. We want people who have a passion for breaking new stories, not just re-hashing stories they’ve read. If you’re willing to scour through records, pound the pavement, search for the unusual, channel the zeitgeist and come up with intriguing stories, we’re interested in hearing from you."
