GameLuster is actively seeking writers and digital content creators
Do you want to write and make content about games? Network with a number of games and games media communities? Be part of a talented, diverse website team? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we’d love to hear from you.
We’re always looking to recruit and train new writers, but there’s more to do at GameLuster. We’re especially interested in broadening our audiovisual content. If you’re an A/V creator, our outlet is a great place to get your creative work in front of a large audience! This could be gameplay recording and editing (with or without commentary), news montages, streaming and highlights, short form content like TikToks, or anything else A/V that covers games.
This is a position that could grow into other areas. We’d bring you on as a writer, but if you gravitate towards A/V work, you could become a graphic designer, or audio editor, or video producer – the list goes on. We bring someone in and give that person the freedom to step up to the plate as they see fit.
Full disclosure: we do pay our staff and freelancers, but this will not be replacing your full-time job. As we work to grow, we hope to change that! That said, there are a number of other benefits to creating here. Freedom and opportunity to hone your craft; networking with other journalists, content creators, and game developers; building a credible media portfolio. GameLuster can take you places.
We communicate through Discord. Using Twitter is highly recommended to make the most of our network. We also have a Twitch channel, which you would have access to for streaming!
If interested, please email the administrator, Moises Garza, with 1-2 writing sample(s) of the style of content you’d like to write. Review sample for reviews, news sample for news, etc. News pieces must be at least 300 words. Please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Writing at GameLuster” as the subject line.
If you have a resume with relevant writing, editing, audiovisual, academic, or work experience, you may include it, but a resume is not required. We would be hiring you as a writer, so your samples will do the talking. And again, though starting as a writer, you will have the freedom to contribute to GameLuster with whatever content you most want to create.
We hope to hear from you, and would love to welcome you to the GameLuster crew!
