WANTED: Freelance Video Game Writers
30plusgamer.com, is a popular gaming website aimed at more experienced gamers 30 years old and up. We feel this is a highly unique, relatively unexplored viewpoint in the gaming industry and feel it elevates 30plusgamer.com above the noise among gaming websites. 30plusgamer.com has the potential to attract a HUGE viewership – the average game buyer is 35! We have a top-notch publication system to make the contribution process easier for writers and a terrific looking front-end to attract viewers. The website is setup to maximize article SEO to generate traffic and get your material noticed.
30plusgamer.com is looking to expand our staff of freelance video game writers to help us produce a steady stream of gaming related material. We are looking for active and experienced (at least 3 published bylined articles within the last 6 months) online writers. Video game writing experience is a definite plus but if you’ve been published at least 3 times in the last 6 months in another industry but have the itch to write in the video game industry, that’s perfect too! We’re looking for friendly, engaging people passionate about playing and talking about video games that can dedicate enough time to contribute a least one article per week (that’s like 2 hours a week – you can do that right?) and be active with the rest of the team on our Facebook team page. Remember, when 30Plusgamer needs to fill editor or director positions, we ALWAYS look to our existing team to find the best, brightest, and most active writers to promote from within.
Please fill out the form below and tell me about yourself, why you want to write for 30plusgamer.com and what you would like to contribute to our site – we need to write game reviews, previews, opinion pieces, news, walkthroughs/guides, slideshows, top x lists etc…. Please include the URLs to 3 bylined writing samples published online.Feel free to include any information you feel will be relevant such as hobbies, taste in movies, your resume, awards, etc… It is important to note that these are currently volunteer (un-paid) positions.
We’re flexible and understand that there is life outside of gaming…..maybe. That said, we NEED WRITERS WHO CAN COMMIT TO A LEAST AN ARTICLE PER WEEK. You are free to write about whatever you want (within reason) as long as it fits into our overall 30+ gamer demographic and is game-related. You may write game reviews, previews, news, guides/walkthroughs, slideshows (top x lists etc…), opinion (blog) pieces, on any platform – PC, mobile, PS3, Xbox 360, Ouya, etc… Posts/articles will be subject to normal editorial review process. We have a fantastic publishing system that includes polls, slideshows and a built-in editorial workflow to make the process easy.
All writers have access to our private 30Plusgamer Writers Facebook Group to collaborate, bounce ideas of each other, ask questions, chat, and more! We also have a full library of written reference material and guideline documentation on working within the 30plusgamer.com system and maximizing your article/post SEO which is particularly invaluable to you as a freelance writer either for 30plusgamer.com or if you move on. Maximizing SEO helps your pieces get noticed and brings in traffic which in turn helps to promote you and grow our exposure. If we grow large enough, 30plusgamer.com WILL be able to bring in ad revenue that we WILL share with our contributors and change over to a paid system.
This is a great opportunity to get on board a growing gaming media source and grow your game journalism career with us.
