30plusgamer.com, is a new gaming website aimed at more experienced gamers 30 years old and up. We feel this is a highly unique, relatively unexplored viewpoint in the gaming industry and feel it will elevate 30plusgamer.com above the noise among gaming websites. 30plsugamer.com has the potential to attract a lot of viewership – the average game buyer is 35! We have a top-notch publication system to make the contribution process easier for writers and a terrific looking front-end to attract viewers. The website is setup to maximize article SEO to generate traffic and get your material noticed.
30plusgamer.com is looking for freelance video game writers to produce a steady stream of gaming related material. NO WRITING EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED - we are willing to give new writers a start. We all have to start someplace and just because you haven’t been published before doesn’t mean you are incapable of writing excellent content. Experienced writers are, however, HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to contribute! We’re looking for friendly, engaging people passionate about playing and talking about video games. That is what is most important. You don’t necessarily have to be 30 or older – not everyone who writes for Seventeen is, in fact 17 but that being said, you WILL have to write to our perspective and if your under 30 then we may have to razz you, add funny sub-titles to your profile, limit your opinions to ours, hit you with our canes, etc…I’m kidding. Anyone under 30 can apply and will be considered. Please fill out the form below and tell me about yourself, why you want to write for 30plusgamer.com and what you would like to contribute to our site – we need to write game reviews, previews, opinion pieces, news, walkthroughs/guides, slideshows, top x lists etc…. If you can submit a writing sample then please feel free to do so – it would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to include any information you feel will be relevant such as writing samples, your resume, awards, etc… These are volunteer (un-paid) positions.
You will not be required to produce content on a daily or weekly basis but we would prefer that once you get started and publish your first article/post/guide etc… with 30plusgamer.com that you try to contribute once a week. We’re flexible and understand that you there is life outside of gaming…..maybe. That said, obviously contributing once every few months isn’t going to work for you or 30plusgamer. You are free to write about whatever you want (within reason) as long as it fits into our overall 30+ gamer demographic and is game-related. You may write game reviews, previews, news, guides/walkthroughs, slideshows (top x lists etc…), opinion (blog) pieces, on any platform – PC, mobile, PS3, Xbox 360, Ouya, etc… Posts/articles will be subject to normal editorial review process. We have a fantastic publishing system that includes polls, slideshows and a built-in editorial workflow to make the process easy.
All writers have access to our private 30Plusgamer Writers Facebook Group to collaborate, bounce ideas of each other, ask questions, chat, and more! We also have a full library of written reference material and guideline documentation on working within the 30plusgamer.com system and maximizing your article/post SEO which is particularly invaluable to you as a freelance writer either for 30plusgamer.com or if you move on. Maximizing SEO helps your pieces get noticed and brings in traffic which in turn helps to promote you and grow our exposure. If we grow large enough, 30plusgamer.com WILL be able to bring in ad revenue that we WILL share with our contributors and change over to a paid system.
This is a great opportunity to get on board a growing gaming media source and grow your game journalism career with us.
