M Grammar

Accepting Applications!

Think you’ve got the chops and the passion to explain the rules of English grammar to fandom? Fill out an application to be a Fandom Grammarian!

Yes, applications are open once again. We’re looking for up to 6 new grammarians to fill the ranks for 2011. No specific background is required as long as you have a passion for grammar and can write a thorough response to a question.

The Process Fill out an application and submit it either by commenting to this post (comments are screened) or by emailing fandomgrammar @gmail.com. On January 25, all applicants will receive an email that includes a grammar question. Just like what the Fandom Grammarians do, applicants will write a response to answer that question. The current Fandom Grammarians will read the responses and select the new grammarians based off those answers.

Application Submit the application either by commenting or by emailing fandomgrammar @gmail.com.

Timeline Applications open on January 10 and close January 23. Questions will go out on January 24 and are due by February 5.

All applicants will be notified as to their status by February 20.

We really do need new grammarians, so if you think you have the time (Fandom Grammarians are asked to answer 4 questions each year, or 1 question every 3 months) and the research skills, please submit an application!

Questions? If you have any questions about the process or about what we’re looking for in a Fandom Grammarian, please feel free to ask. All answers to questions will be unscreened.
