    ^That's the link for the B/R basic info. The application link is in the top-right corner. When you click on "Submit Application," it opens up the application.

    Near the end, there is a space to write a submission piece. I strongly suggest writing it in Word or Open Office, then copy/pasting it. Iron out the kinks in the article, then apply.

    Very few people get picked up straight into the FC trial program, but they have a points system where you can earn the FC status by writing better and better articles.

    Good luck, man, it's an absolute blast to write for these guys! :)

    Finished. The only "we" is in the "alternate wish" section for Landon Collins. I think that one's still appropriate. Again, thank you for your honesty. It's priceless.

    Good call on the "we" and "they" peppered into that article. I didn't even realize that I'd done that.

    I am a new writer, and I'm still getting used to "not being a fan" when I write. Thanks for pointing those out. I can't tell you how great it is to have people paying attention to that.

    Journalism is a difficult enough field without my working against myself. Give it about 20 minutes, and the "we" and "they" instances will be gone.
