The positions are open to anyone over the age of 18 - regardless of where you live - though respondents who live near industry centers (Los Angeles, NYC, San Francisco, etc) might be privy to additional opportunities. Our site covers reviews, interviews, and features but for the time being we are looking for dedicated news and list writers only.
Availability outside of normal business hours (nights and weekends) is a plus but we're ALSO looking for daytime help. Familiarity with custom Content Management Systems and Wordpress.

There are currently no full time positions available but we offer good part time pay.Fill out the Contributor Application Form below.
Regarding the “Message” field, if you have links to prior online writing experience, send us 2 or 3 links but ONLY if it's relevant to comics, TV, movies, or video game reporting. If you were writing in a different field - or have not written news content, we need fresh comics/movie/TV/gaming samples to look over. Do not send us short stories, poetry, food reviews, lifestyle pieces, or other writing samples that are non-movie/TV/gaming. Any samples that do not adhere to these guidelines - or any applications without samples will not be considered.
Do not follow-up with us if you do not hear back immediately. If all of our free lance positions are filled, we will keep your application on file for future openings.
