Freelance Games Features and List Writer (work from home) $75 – $125 a day

Website Den of Geek



This is a freelance, pay-per-article, remote position.

Den of Geek is looking for freelance features and lists writers to expand our remote Games team!

Are you an avid gamer who plays everything and anything, from the hottest new releases to the underrated oddities making their way up the Steam Top 100? Do you love talking, reading, and writing about the video game industry and community? If so, we want to hear from you!

Ideal contributors are organized and detail-oriented self-starters who are very comfortable pitching and taking assignments as well as meeting deadlines. You’re someone who loves covering the latest next-gen games and platforms and/or writing nostalgic deep-dives into retro titles from the golden age of gaming. Or you’re someone who is comfortable writing well-informed opinion pieces about big industry news. Preferably, you’re also tuned into what the gaming community is talking about and regularly participate in those conversations.

Most importantly, you’ve familiarized yourself with Den of Geek’s Games coverage (denofgeek.com/games). Showing us you have a good understanding of our editorial style and areas of interest before you send in your pitches will go a very long way!

While we’re primarily looking for writers with at least 1-2 years of relevant experience publishing work at reputable gaming outlets, we also welcome newcomers looking for their big start in Games journalism (as long as they can provide writing samples with their pitches). Working knowledge of AP style and SEO best practices a plus.

Successful freelance contributors to denofgeek.com may also be invited to pitch for our quarterly print magazine down the line!

Pitches we're looking for:

  • Features covering the latest home console and PC releases (we’re not looking for traditional scored reviews or hands-on previews)
  • Retrospectives and lists covering retro games and platforms
  • Interviews with a feature angle (no Q&As)
  • Investigative pieces and original reporting covering the gaming industry or community
  • Timely opinion pieces and hot takes on breaking news and trending topics
  • Other areas of interest include esports and tech
  • om/games/a-link-to-the-past-the-legend-of-zelda-retrospective-definitive-game/

To apply, reply to this listing with the following:

  • Send us a brief intro explaining who you are and why you think you should write for Den of Geek Games
  • Send us 1-3 pitches for features and/or lists you think would be a good fit for Den of Geek Games
  • Include 2-3 links to your best published clips (Games articles only, please)

Only completed applications including the above will be considered.
