Want to write about video games and live around LA or SF?
Do you like playing, talking about, and writing about video games? Does the video game industry interest you a lot? Do you read “Iwata Asks” when they come out? Are you offended by the Iwata Laugh? Do you even know who Iwata is?
If those questions all make sense to you, and you said yes to most of them, then you might be perfect for the position of Staff Writer at Nintendo World Report. You’d need to have excellent writing and editing skills, knowledge and enthusiasm for the video game industry, and frequent online availability on AIM or e-mail. It would be awesome if you have experience writing about video games and podcasting experience. For this specific posting, we're looking for writers who live the San Francisco or Los Angeles areas. Also, if you have the ability to cover gaming events during the day, that's a plus as well.
Working at Nintendo World Report doesn't come without perks. While we're a volunteer site, we do offer access to the gaming industry, chances to attend events such as E3 and PAX, and review copies of games. We have been around since 1999, and members of our staff have gone on to work at THQ, LucasArts, Game Informer, G4, IGN, and more. Also, members of our staff have been published in Electronic Gaming Monthly, 1UP, GamePro, America Online, and many more.
If you're interested, submit your resume, a link to any blogs or past work you'd like to show us, and a news story and review written in the NWR style (see below) to nwrjobs@nintendoworldreport. Depending on experience, a Skype interview may be required.
Note: NWR style is loosely defined for the purposes of these applications. What we do ask is that you follow the format presented on our site. News stories should include a headline, an abstract, sources (with links), and body text. Reviews require a score following the guidelines here, and pros and cons.
