TIMJ looking for new writers

Posted on by Andy Corrigan

Are you a talented writer, full of opinion and enjoy debating industry subjects? Do you enjoy blending your own thoughts and personality into your work?

Then you might be in luck; our award winning site is looking for a number of volunteers to come on board and join our writing team, to help bolster and increase our output.

Ideally, those interested will have prior experience in working with blogs and independent sites, and have solid writing and grammatical skills. Experience with WordPress is also a plus.

Interested parties will be required to contribute at least one article per week/fortnight, be it a review, opinion editorial or other feature.

Although we don’t currently pay, there are definite perks to be had in joining us, including press attendance at major industry events (particularly in the UK) and the chance to take on reviews.

Worth more than that, is the fact that with us, a lot of our writers have developed and gained the experience they required to have freelance work appear on publications such as IGN, GamesTM, GameRanx, and Games.on.Net.

If you’re interested, please feel free to email or for more information. Supplying samples up front will speed up the process somewhat!
