I think I could be a good fit as a writer, but I don't have much in the way of writing experience I can show you. Do you have any examples of what someone at this position would be focusing on? I'm happy to write up a couple pieces to demonstrate my abilities.

Writers at MIRI will primarily be focusing on explaining why it's a terrible idea to build something smarter than humans that does not want what we want. They will also answer the subsequent questions that we get over and over about that.
