Hi guys, it's been a while since I posted on here. I am currently looking for new contributors to write across a range of subjects for my online magazine.

http://www.the-nri.com

Contrary to the name of the site, many of our readers are based in India and we regularly covers issues relating to India, as well as Indian communities around the world.

I am looking for individuals with a real talent for writing and a high standard of written English. Unfortunately I am only able to take on a few people and I am actively advertising elsewhere. Interested parties should leave a message here with links to previous work. Alternatively, you can contact me in confidence through the contact page of the site.

@The Sorceror - No. Already some of the writing team are resident Indians. More important is writing ability, and passion or knowledge in one of the subject categories.

@Umesh - thank you for your input. I am currently assessing applicants from here and elsewhere. I will contact those where there is a right fit with The NRI magazine. Regrettably I am unable to come back to all who have expressed an interest. At the same time, I encourage bloggers to continue leaving their details here as my request is an ongoing initiative.

hey here's mine: http://gmish27.blogspot.com. Am i too small???

Dear NRI, i have a request.. Certainly not applying for a writer in your blog or site whatever it is.. i find your site drastically defames India and i have added you in Indi but dint accept my request it seems perhaps you wouldn't have seen my request as you are busy in voting for some women professional bloggers, please make a descent blog. if you have some Indian in you left, try to respect your readers and ask your fantastic writers to have a control with words !

Dear NRI,

Here are my links.

Guys, only just saw this. For some reason I am not getting updated on responses despite tracking this thread. Will check out the links.

I must apologise if I do not contact all of you. There are limited spots and I am striving to maintain the very diverse nature of the writing team. However, what I would say is that this is an ongoing initiative so I am keeping everyone's details on file.

Our growing audience is becoming ever more demanding. I want to ensure that we retain quality of content so I am looking to take on contributors with exceptional writing ability.

Can I also put a shout out for contributors to participate in some new planned initiatives. They are a couple of months away but I would like to start recruiting now. New areas include.

1. Food. Need amateur cooks to contribute recipes (Indian only but can include Indian fusion food).

2. City experts. Need social insiders who are in the know on what is happening in their city - restaurants, events, etc. Looking at the main metros.

3. Photographers. There will be new section where budding and professional photographers can showcase their work and receive full credits. Only looking for city scenes (ties in with above project) of above mentioned project.

I want to organise a file for all potential applicants, so can interested parties email me at thenriblogger@gmail.com with subject heading The NRI - Food / City / Photographer (delete as appropriate) - Name. Please also post here so I have another record.

Thank you all for keeping this thread alive. Hope to speak to some of you soon:)
