Gamepur, the destination for quality gaming guides, reviews, news, and features, is seeking talented and flexible freelance contributing writers. This is an opportunity to thrive in a healthy workplace with an excellent staff who will support you toward your career goals in the industry. Gamepur is also a known spot to hone your craft in writing SEO-focused guides, top 10 lists, news stories, and reviews.
Our outlet covers any and all games, from live services like Genshin Impact and Destiny 2 and battle royales including Fortnite and Warzone to mobile games such as Bitlife, and even indie titles. Freelance writers can write pre-approved topics or pitch content for any games that are known to drive traffic and interest from readers.
Areas currently in need of support include (but are not limited to):
In your cover letter, please list which games, franchises, and genres you intend to cover.
Time and availability are flexible, but freelance writers should maintain a frequent presence on the site and utilize our staff’s editorial resources. We are looking for writers from any region in the world with clean copy, and with prior experience writing for a gaming publication in English. We’re also seeking candidates with knowledge and experience with Google Trends and SEO, along with knowledge of popular titles, the larger games industry, and especially within gaming communities on Twitter, Reddit, or other forums.
Candidates must have drive, consistency, good communication habits, and a willingness to learn and adapt above all. We pay per published article, with our contributing writers publishing a minimum of 25 posts per month, with no upper limit. With a tiered payment system based on content type, contributing writers can earn between $15 to $80 per piece, depending on content type and length.
To be considered:
Submit a resume, a short cover letter, and at least three relevant writing clips. If applicable, please share at least one news story, gameplay guide, and feature each. Address your cover letter to Managing Editor Chris Compendio, and detail both your previous writing experience along with your career goals and ambitions. We do not need to hear how “passionate” you are about video games; we are all passionate here. Note: A cover letter and clips are required to be considered.
