You're in exactly the right place! We're always keen to consider applications from budding wordsmiths, and this page is designed to help you apply to join the team.
While we do several different kinds of writing here at NZGamer.com, most of the team are reviewers. The position is not currently a paid one, however there are definitely benefits to being involved - including the chance to see your work published on high profile websites like NZGamer.com and those of our syndication partners.
To give you an idea of what we expect from a review writer, a review for NZGamer.com should be:
Make sense? Does that sound like something you'd like to do?
If you answered "yes" and "yes", read on...
Now that you've read the job description, you're ready to apply to join the team. As the quality of your writing is of very high importance, it's imperative that we get a chance to see whether you've got what it takes to be a regular contributor. For that reason, an application is more than just putting your hand up. In fact, we need you to write something for us to give us an idea of what you're capable of.
Specifically, we need you to write us a review (of anything you like, new or old) according to the list of requirements detailed below. We probably won't ever use this material on the site (and certainly not without your permission, which is not implied simply by applying for the job), but completing it will give us a lot of information about you and is a good opportunity to get a taste for what's involved in the job itself.
Once you have written your masterpiece, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a little blurb about yourself (who you are, why you want to write for us, a bit about your gaming and writing experience) and we'll take it from there.
We look forward to hearing from you
