Do you want to write about video games? WRITE FOR US!
GrownGaming.com is always looking for talented writers to join the family – and we only expect you to write about what you enjoy. Whether you like writing opinion pieces, covering the latest breaking news stories, putting together helpful tips and guides or writing reviews, we have the platform for you.
But, why should you write for us?
These are benefits to being involved:
- Your writing will be exposed to our audience of thousands of grown-up gamers;
- It’s a great chance to see your work published on an active website;
- Everything that you write will be promoted via our social media channels;
- Free games will be offered to you to review;
- We have a talented editor who will get your work into the best shape possible before publishing;
- You can earn some money for your work via your choice of affiliate marketing or banner ad.
We don’t ask too much of you. There are no ridiculous quotas to meet – you don’t need to write an article or review every day, every week, or even every month. Real life should always come first.
We also don’t expect you to write about anything specific. You can write about PS4, Xbox, Switch, PC, mobile, retro games – anything you like. We want you to write the kinds of articles that you’d like to be known for, not to fit within a pre-defined box that isn’t natural to you.
What we do expect, however, is well-written, honest articles that you’re proud of. It helps to remember that our audience is primarily grown-up gamers, too.
As the website grows and evolves, there may be an opportunity to join us as a staff writer. We would also happily pass along a reference should your writing be noticed by another website offering an employment opportunity.
So, how does it work?
As a new writer to us, your first 4 articles will be posted under our “Guest Post” account with BY YOUR NAME: at the beginning. You can see an example here. At this stage, YOU’LL email articles to us and we’ll upload them for you.
When you reach 5 articles, an account is created for you, which will be linked to Gravatar so it pulls through your About Me information and avatar, etc. Your older articles will also be assigned to this account. You can see an example here. You’ll be able to use it to log in to the back end of the website and submit articles directly. You’ll also be invited to the team’s Discord, where we talk about games, article ideas, life and free game keys are offered for reviews.
As far as payment goes, we do not pay you directly but we’re happy for you to send us a banner and link to your chosen affiliate scheme or banner ad. This is our way of giving you a share of the money generated by your article – if someone clicks your banner today (or in two years), you get paid by your affiliate partner as per their terms. Your ad will be inserted into the first few paragraphs of the article. Affiliates to consider include Amazon, Humble Monthly, Green Man Gaming and CD Keys, though there are many, many more out there.
Still interested in joining the team?
Brilliant! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with examples of your writing (either with attachments or links) and a little bit about yourself. We will be in touch.
Thank you for your interest!
