Speaking as someone who runs a sizable paid content operation just like this, it's not like hiring a salaried employee, where there are a finite number of "slots," if you will. Rather, you're using a pool of side hustlers to produce some minimum amount of weekly/monthly content. So there's not much incentive to reject anyone when they're filling out the form. Worst case, if you have too many people, is that you tell them to check back next month.

The thing that will wash people out -- the biggest pain point for marketers who run these programs, by far -- is flakiness/lateness/problems during content production. Would-be writers ghost, turn things in a week late, plagiarize, etc. So you're already probably in the top half of the applicant pool just by doing what you say you'll do, when you say you'll do it.
