GameLuster.com is seeking a few more writers and a graphic designer.

We are a small, growing site and want to build ourselves up around new staff members. Have passion and vision? Want to write about games and be part of a website? Being a small site understaffed at the moment, what you bring to us could shape our identity strongly. We’re open to new ideas! If interested, see details below.

-Writing positions-

We are seeking writers of any kind: news, reviews, or features. You could just do one, or you could do all three! To apply, please send us 2-3 writing samples. These could be an article published online, a college essay, a review you submitted to GameFAQs, or even something you write just now for this application. We just need to see what your writing is like. We’d prefer if at least one writing sample has to do with video games.

In addition to your writing samples, please also include a brief personal statement on why you want to write for a game website. It could be two sentences, it could be two pages – as long as it gets the point across, it’s fine.

No resume necessary, but if it has relevant experience (college, editorial work, etc.) including it would help.

Send application materials to moises@gameluster.com.

-Graphic Design position-

We are also seeking a Graphic Designer. If you are skilled with arts and graphics, please send us samples of your work and note what programs (Photoshop, Gimp, etc.) you are familiar with. Also include a resume if you have college and / or career experience in Graphic Design or any artistic field. We’ll leave the number of samples you include up to you – just convince us that you are a solid graphic designer. (It would be a good idea to include at least three.)

Send application materials to moises@gameluster.com.

DISCLAIMERS

  1. We cannot guarantee we will be able to respond to every application received.
  2. All new hires will be subject to a four week probationary period. The terms of this will be disclosed to you if we consider you for hire. The basic gist is: we expect steady content from you early to make sure that you can be an active contributor.
  3. We currently hire staff as volunteers and make no promise of pay.
  4. While it may be possible to request and receive a review copy of a game, you are not guaranteed to receive any.
