In fact a quick perusal of DC's online materials does not present one with any possible mechanism -- none whatsoever -- by which one could be considered for hiring as a new writer by the company. They have a mechanism for artists of all stripes (pencilers, colorists, etc), but not writers. In fact they don't just omit the means of getting a writing sample considered, they state outright that under no circumstances will they ever consider a writing sample from anyone, anywhere, under any circumstances. One wonders how the hell DC ever finds new writing talent. (And maybe this is why so much of their current writing talent, to put it bluntly, sucks.)
I'm glad I don't still harbor the desire to write comics as I once did. I have no idea how anyone would ever make that dream a reality anymore... unless one goes into self-publishing or something.
