So, yesterday i sent in my submission, written to the extent of my ability.

I am young, I have had nothing published, and i live on the other side of the globe.

Do i stand a chance, or will they pick the 40-year old neckbeard instead of me anytime?

>Avoid any violence towards children or otherwise defenseless individuals or any sexual violence. Any submission containing this will be rejected outright, and the writer will not be able to write for us in the future.

Both. Basically, writing your own stuff and knowing the right people who can jump-start you. Or, ya know, you can be such an awesome writer that they'll hire you in a heartbeat.

And like >>16223338 says I'm also surprised someone's hiring in the business. Roses aren't exactly blooming, if you know what I mean.

Well, it's FFG, they almost always have spots open for some position, whether it's freelance writer, "Organized Play Associate" or marketing thingies

>We are not looking for comedy entries, and do not submit any easter eggs. Any overt or subtle references to your favorite comic book, movie, song, or other media will get your submission rejected.

I guess you've got to earn the right to tip your hat to /tg/ first.
