We are looking for a few talented writers to join our team this year and help us produce opinion pieces, columns, features, reviews, and news for GoombaStomp.com and TiltMagazine.net.
We are currently looking for:
Comic Book Writers
Three TV writers
Two Playstation Writers
Several Wrestling Writers
Two Indie Game Writers
Blog/News Writers (Film, Games, TV)
Why choose us?
Writers define their own schedule, and we welcome feedback. We are not in the business of producing clickbait nor do we ask our writers to churn out the same news stories found on most websites. Instead, we are looking for talented writers who can deliver intelligent, professionally written, sometimes funny, but always engaging content.
Writers have tremendous freedom when it comes to the subject matter they choose to write about and while editors will suggest themes and subjects to cover, we encourage writers to pitch their own ideas. We are looking to build a solid team of dedicated writers who care about the site and want to stick around and help us grow.
There are other benefits to writing for us, such as exposure for your writing (we average between 400, 000 and 500, 000 visits a month), a nice piece to add to your online resume, and a chance at press badges for trade shows, festivals, and press events including PAX, TIFF, Cannes, Fantasia, Fantastic Fest, SXSW, E3, GamesCon, NYCC, Tribeca, NYFF, Hot Docs, SDCC and so much more.
Not to mention you will get to meet and work with a great group of writers who share the same passions that you do for TV, Film, and gaming in all its forms. We really want to make sure everyone is writing about what they are passionate about and more importantly, we go out of our way to make sure people see your hard work.
How to apply:
Please keep in mind we are looking for part-time freelance writers. If you are looking for a full-time job, this is not for you.
If you are interested, please include a few writing samples. We highly recommend visiting our website GoombaStomp .com as well as our sister site, TiltMagazine .net to get a better understanding of the sort of content we produce.
We do not need your resume. Instead, tell us something about yourself. Let us know which city you reside in, which social media platforms you frequently use (Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, etc.), and why you want to write for us.
Bonus points for originality!
Goomba Stomp is the joint effort of a team of like-minded writers from across the globe. We provide smart readers with sharp, entertaining writing on a wide range of topics in pop culture, offering an escape from the usual hype and gossip. Unlike most websites that offer the brief review format, Goomba Stomp features long-form, in-depth coverage, and lengthy, well-researched articles alongside several award-winning podcasts. We believe that within today’s click bait-info-entertainment landscape there is still plenty of room to rigorously discuss the video game industry so that it can continue to flourish and remain an important voice of cultural and artistic expression. In addition, while we place an emphasis on the gaming industry, we find value in all modes of expression, as well as the intersections therein, an ethos that applies to all three of our main areas of interest (Film, TV, and Games). There is more to discover in all these mediums than ever before, and we strive to make our enthusiasm and expertise infectious.
