Are you ready to jump in to the world of writing about games? Unless you’ve reached this page by error, that answer is probably yes. The good thing is, you’re in the right place. We are currently looking for ambitious writers with all levels of experience to join our team of contributors.
Why you should write with us
An established website
Attack of the Fanboy is an independent website published by Modern Media Group LLC that was established in March 2010, and has been providing video game news, reviews, videos, guides and more to our growing audience of readers on a daily basis. Having established our footprint, our site attends industry events like E3, PAX, Gamescom, Eurogamer Expo and others, which gives us an inside look at the video game industry, and in-turn, enables us to write better, more informed articles for our readers. The opportunities that are available for our writers are directly tied to the level of commitment that a writer demonstrates for our site. Current and past contributors for our site have sat for interviews and previews for some of the biggest games franchises in the world. Want to see the next big game before everyone else? Write for our site, and this could be you!
Exposure for your writing
Our site is included in the Metacritic, GameRankings, and Open Critic review aggregators. What’s this mean? It means your writing gets seen by many in the gaming community. Our site is a great place to establish your footprint as a critic or reporter.
Experience is a valuable commodity. If you’re looking to become a full-time journalist or freelancer, we’ll give you a great launching pad and invaluable experience in the article creation process. We’ll teach you how to use one of the most popular publishing programs, and how to adhere to best practices for online media creation.
Who we are looking for
- You are passionate about video games, and want to share that passion with the world.
- You are looking for exposure for your writing, and an opportunity to get real world experience.
- You want to be an authoritative voice writing about video games on the web.
If any of this sounds like you, read on!
Ok, I’m interested. How do I start?
Read on below to find out what we’re looking for in new contributors.
Payment – Yes (Dependent on page views)
Requirements – We are only looking for ambitious writers who are looking to actively contribute to the site on a daily basis, preferably multiple articles per day and the desire to take on assignments which include reviews, guides, list style articles, and more. You will meet weekly requirements for article quotas and monthly requirements for traffic quotas.
If the above doesn’t sound like you, but you are interested in contributing to our site we would still like to talk with you. Voluntary contribution to our site will still have some expectations attached to it, but far less than what’s listed above.
