We here at Weeaboos With Controllers try to cover as much as possible in the world of video games and anime/manga, but we can’t do it all. That’s why we’re constantly on the lookout for new writers who can contribute to our ever growing amount of original content. If you’re a good writer who is passionate about video games and anime, then you might be exactly who we’re looking for.
What does it take to write for you guys?
Not a lot really, but there a few specific things that we need. While we don’t require you to be an established blogger or write for a living, we do require you to possess good writing skills and a good understanding of the English language. If you do have a blog, we would love to take a look at it to see what you’re capable of. Otherwise, we will need to see some sample writing to determine if you qualify.
Secondly, and just as important, is that you must be knowledgeable and passionate about video games and/or anime (preferably both). You have to know your stuff and be able to write effectively about either topic if you want to contribute to our website. You must also be able to communicate with the rest of the team and be aware of what is assigned to you. We do not have an age requirement, but we do expect you to be mature and respectful to your fellow writers if you want to be a team member.
It’s also important to note that we have a zero tolerance policy for plagiarism. Anything you write for us has be your own words, and if not it must be credited to the original writer.
What are the benefits and how will I be compensated?
The positions we currently have available are non-paid, instead you will be compensated in the following ways:
- You can use our site to promote your writing, and list it on future resumes under your writing experience.
- Anything you write will be credited at the bottom with your very own author box. It includes a small bio about yourself, and you can also link to your website if you so choose.
- Your writing will be exposed to constantly growing traffic and will be promoted through our Facebook and Twitter pages.
- We give you a way to get your opinion out into the video game and anime community.
- The opportunity to appear on our podcast and hang out with us for laughs and discussion.
- Hang out with your fellow writers and even play games together.
While we are serious about providing content to our audience, we are also a pretty laid back group of friendly individuals. Our team is tight-knit and almost like a family, and the longer you stay with us, the more opportunities you will get to contribute.
What kind of writers are you looking for right now?
At this point in time, we are actively looking for News Contributors. Your job would be to find interesting and breaking gaming and anime news and cover it on the site. You will be responsible for keeping our readers up to date and providing them with fresh content on a daily basis. However, if you show dedication to your job and want to contribute original content like editorials or even reviews, then you do have the opportunity to be promoted.
If this position is not exactly what you’re looking for, but you still want to contribute then don’t be afraid to apply anyways. We might just find a place for you if you can show us what you can offer.
What do I need to do if I’m interested?
If you’ve read everything above and are interested in applying to be a writer for our website, then please follow the instructions below:
- Contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and send us a brief description of yourself, why you want the position, and your areas of interest related to video games and anime.
- Include some sample writing you have done in the past, or write up a mock news article of your choosing so we can see how you write.
- If we like what we see, we will contact you back and ask you to meet with us for a short interview. It is important that we meet with you before we make a final decision.
Thank you for your interest in joining our team, and we hope you will apply!
