This caught our eye on Craigslist:

Writers Needed for a Weekly Column

Reply to: gigs-817483816@craigslist.org

So… Please read through before sending us resumes.

We are looking for writers to start an online weekly trade.
The trade is for the entertainment community.
You can pick your subject: career advice, movie reviews, or anything else that comes to mind and suits our site.

Please note that we are looking for writers who love to write and not just doing it for $.
We are a non profit site, so this is a non paid gig. The only thing we do promise you is over 50.000 readers a month. So the benefit would be major exposure.

Our plan is to go on paper within a year. Writers who would stick with us will then get paid contracts.

Please send us some writing samples and the subject you would like to write about.
Actors, casting directors or other industry professionals are welcome.

Sincerely,

Allen

Here’s something you’ll never hear,”Please note that we are looking for janitors who love to clean and not just doing it for $.”

Yeah, it could be the only profession where the desire to be paid for it is considered a moral liability. Well, this and hooking…

Oh and cheap and/or broke is not the same as non-profit. Maybe they can find an accountant who loves to set up 501(c)(3) and not just doing it for the $.
