Want to write for us? There’s always room for more charismatic and intelligent members of the team. The site is currently accepting submissions for freelance articles, blog series’ and regular writing positions.
What do we want?
Entertainment! Wit! Smart ideas with good arguments backing them up! Fun! If you’ve seen the site proper, you know we cover a wide range of topics from all sorts of angles. As long as it’s about nerdy stuff, we’re interested. Discuss the meaning of the gun in modern gaming. Wax philosophical on the parallels between eastern religion and player death. Talk about the importance of explosions. Argue coherently that Spider-Man is better than Batman. As long as you’re passionate and entertaining with a good handle on your own writing we’ll take a look.
Opinion pieces, in-depth investigations, reviews, comedy, parody, critical analysis, personal stories, harsh criticism of industry norms, love letters to developers… the sky’s the limit.
What DON’T we want?
Lists. And other boring things.
All writers should send a query proposing their piece before emailing complete articles. Queries should be carefully crafted with loving care and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a description of the article, as well as a little about yourself, your work and your gaming habits. The amount of detail is up to you, but the more we know about what you’re planning to do the easier it is to make decisions.
Please put “submission” somewhere in the subject line, and indicate whether you’re submitting a one-off article, a series idea or applying to be a regular contributor. For the latter, we’re mainly looking for people to write news articles and original features.
We can’t guarantee your idea will be commissioned or your human form will be brought into the fold, but you will get an email to let you know the submission has been received, then one more to confirm acceptance/rejection. Be patient, we’re busy bees. Also note that we can’t currently pay for articles as we’re only a small site staffed by hard-working regular-types. But we do want to move into paying contributors in the near future.
No. Get submitting! Operators are standing by, twirling their hair and chewing on the end of cheap pens. Legs crossing and uncrossing. Send us a query right now!
