I don’t usually make these types of posts, but I am currently looking for a few new writers to join me on the NintyBuzz team. As some of you may know, it can be quite difficult to balance College and other projects so it would be amazing to get some help from time to time. This doesn’t just benefit me however.
Read about the benefits of writing for NintyBuzz after the break!
Unfortunately, we can not pay anyone for writing quite yet due to the small size of NintyBuzz, but that doesn’t mean you will not gain anything from writing here. If you want to get into video game journalism as a job, there is nothing better than starting off writing for a lesser known blog. It’s good as you start to get some experience in writing and you can develop your own style. It also shows that you are serious about writing as, if you are committed, it demonstrates that you have the motivation to write, something a lot of employers like.
Another benefit of writing here is the fact that you will get the chance to attend some video gaming expos for free, some include early access too. Since we opened up in June, we were already able to obtain press passes for EGX London 2014. If we are able to gain enough readership, we might even be able to attend E3 in the future, and may I remind you that this isn’t open to the general public so it is kind of a big thing!
If you are wanting to review games, there may also be a chance to review some games before they are released. We haven’t had this happen yet, however if we write several reviews then this is definitely a possibility.
So, if you want to write for NintyBuzz, just read these brief guidelines, fill out the following form and I will get back to you ASAP!
- You must be over 16 to apply. We love to see younger people eager to get on the writing bandwagon, though unfortunately we require a certain amount of maturity to write for us. I have had some bad experiences in the past involving younger writers getting angry and causing damage… darn those people for ruining it for the rest of you youngsters
- You must be able to write in understandable English.
- You must be able to write articles without putting down a company, game etc. just because you don’t like it… with the exception of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts ‘n Bolt… because that just ruined BK -_- (joke :P)
- Please no spamming or trolling on the web form, that’s kinda self explanatory but it’s annoying… and proves you have no life
I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
