Have you got a passion for gaming, esports, or the wider culture that surrounds video games? Then maybe you might like to write for GINX as a freelance writer.
We are currently looking for ambitious writers with all levels of experience to join our team of contributors creating content for the GINX.TV website.
What Are We Looking For?
First and foremost, we’re looking for writers who are knowledgeable and passionate about the games they cover. We would always prefer that you have the desire to cover specific titles, as opposed to *everything* under the sun.
We're also keen to hear from writers of all levels of experience. Everyone has to start somewhere, so shoot your shot.
Lastly, we don't require a minimum number of articles per month from our freelancers; although we would love you to become a regular contributor to the site.
You're free to contribute as much or as little as you desire.
How To Apply
It would also be really useful if you could include some details, like those listed below:
- Full Name & Links to Social Accounts
- Pronouns you identify with.
- What game(s) you're interested in covering should you join our freelance pool.
- Suggestions for the types of guides or stories you might like to write about (ideally ones we've not already covered on GINX, obviously...)
- Links to your portfolio or past work if you have any
- Any other info you may feel is relevant.
What Happens Next? We'll be in touch by email and hopefully, after a quick chat, we'll add you to our work Slack, where you'll have more direct access to editors to pitch your stories.
