Seeking writers (Gaming, Wrestling, TV)
This job is no longer accepting applications.
Your Vision, Our Future
Goomba Stomp is seeking writers for articles about gaming, television, film, comics, and wrestling.
Why choose us?
Writers define their own schedule and have tremendous freedom when it comes to the subject matter they choose to write about and while editors will suggest themes and subjects to cover, they also encourage writers to pitch their own ideas. Surely you must have some?
In addition, we are not in the business of producing clickbait, nor do we ask our writers to churn out the same exact news stories found on most websites. Instead, we are looking for talented writers who can deliver intelligent, well-written, sometimes funny, always engaging content. We really want to make sure everyone is writing about what they are passionate about and more importantly, we go out of our way to make sure people see your hard work.
There are other benefits to writing for us, such as a chance at press badges for trade shows, festivals, and press events including TIFF, Cannes, Fantasia, Fantastic Fest, SXSW, E3, GamesCon, NYCC, Tribeca, NYFF, Hot Docs, SDCC and so much more. Of course, the biggest perk is that you’ll get to meet and work with a great group of writers who share the same passions that you do. Many of us have been here since the beginning and have grown to enjoy working as a team. Our writers actually get to know each other, and over time become good friends.
Do we pay?
Yes. However, please remember that Goomba Stomp is an independently owned and operated publication, started by a group of friends, so we can’t pay top dollar. We have a sliding scale and pay between USD$10 and USD$60 depending on the topic and length.
Essential Duties & Responsibilities:
· Care about writing as a craft. Seriously.
· Are eager to brainstorm ways to expand our coverage.
· Are comfortable with WordPress or willing to learn.
· Are invested in helping us develop original content.
· Consistently hit target content frequency goals daily, monthly.
· Help seek out trending news items that will move the needle.
Bonus points if you use Reddit and/or familiar with best SEO practices.
Above all else, we are looking for applicants with a passion for writing as well as the type of content we cover. Yes, you play video games, but you also have a wide range of interests and a good understanding of broader pop culture.
