How To Apply

Send us an email with the subject line “New Writers” to info(at)carscoops.com (or just click here) containing two freshly written sample posts (300 word min), with pictures from car manufactures’ press sites or your own shots, and/or embedded videos.

The sample articles should include at least one original and enticing automotive-related subject that will engage and entertain readers, plus a story on a newly introduced product. Provide links to your previous work.
