DualShockers is Looking For a Few Good Writers

on July 31, 2009 1:00 PM

DualShockers is on the look out for a few good writers. We are an up and coming gaming news/enthusiast blog and we are looking to add to our stacked arsenal of writers. As of right now because the site is still very new, this is a volunteer/freelance work so there is no compensation at first. In 8 months or so, as the site begins to generate revenue the editors will get together to discuss options and writer compensation. What you will receive in the meantime is experience and exposure in the video game industry as we are currently setting ourselves up to attend all major industry trade shows (i.e. GDC, E32010, TGS 2010).

To apply all you have to do is send us 3 writing samples. Two of the pieces are to be game related news or editorials. The third piece should be about your gaming background and why you would want to be a part of the DualShockers team. All submissions are to be sent HERE. The subject line should read “Contributor Sample”. Please DO NOT put your writing samples in the actual email message box, they should be attached in MS Word Doc format. The most important thing is: have fun and be loose with your writing, no one likes to read boring material!

Requirements:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Responsible
  • Very basic knowledge of HTML (embedding pictures and videos)
  • Ability to form sentences, phrases, and complete thoughts that make sense
  • Love of any and all Video Games Consoles and Handhelds
  • Personality (no one likes monotone writing)
