In our quest to satisfy our ever-growing readership, GameGuiders.com is seeking new news writers to join our passionate team of video game journalists. Your role will see you reporting on the latest news from the gaming industry, from the small indie releases to the mega triple-A titles, and everything in between. You will be responsible for both sourcing your own material (giving you the freedom to write about the games you love) and picking up in-house news briefs (giving you the true journalistic experience).
We are looking to take on three new probationary writers who will begin their journey on our news team. During the probationary period, you will be expected to submit a minimum of 2 articles per week. Please note that these roles are currently unpaid. What we are offering is journalistic experience, the chance to write about your favourite games on a respected platform, regular feedback from our seasoned editors on how to improve your writing, and a place in our gaming community. You may also receive the odd game key when we have them.
After the probationary period (three weeks) is up, you will then be free to write your own feature pieces, opinion pieces, and reviews. We also encourage writers to get involved with other Game Guiders projects, such as the new Game Guiders podcast, video series, and any featured collaborations.
