I am a publisher with more than 15 years experience in creating gaming websites that are used by millions of people each month. I am launching a new brand and am looking for writers to power this new publication.

I have acquired an outstanding domain with a long history in the world of video games and we will be hitting the ground running. Your work will be viewed and read widely, even when we launch.

At the moment I am looking for two types of writers. You can be either or, or both.

  1. Those who can write evergreen content (guides and informative articles predominantly).
  2. Those who are able to cover the latest esports news and events.

EVERGREEN ARTICLES

You need to be able to gather information from different sources and compile it into in-depth, readable and helpful guides and/or informative articles for other gamers. You will not be writing news, reviews or opinion pieces. It will be factual content about games.

ESPORTS NEWS

You need to be extremely passionate and knowledgable about the esports scene and of course be an exceptional writer. You will be covering the latest news about esports games, players, events, etc.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Exceptional writing ability
  • Perfect grammar, punctuation, and formatting skills (WordPress)

WHY APPLY?

Your work will be seen by millions of readers and I am offering a long-term, competitively paid position in the company.
