Better yet… have you seen our 10-part tutorial series on Unreal Engine and thought it would be fun to help create more high quality Unreal Engine tutorials like this for the community?
That’s right! We’re putting together an Unreal Engine team to create written tutorials for this site (and maybe even a book!), and we’re actively looking for great new authors and tech editors.
Do you want to know more? Then keep reading to find out what’s involved and how to apply!
Note: This is not a full time job; these are part-time, informal paid contracting positions that you can do in the evenings and weekends.

Requirements and How to Apply
Here are the requirements:

To apply, send me an email, and be sure to include the following information:
- Why do you want to be an Unreal Engine author or tech editor? Please specify which role you prefer.

If you’re applying to be an author, you’ll be required to write a sample tutorial to gauge your writing skills. If you’re applying to be a tech editor, you’ll be given a tech editor tryout so we can gauge your editing skills.
If you pass the tryout, you’re in!
