Prima Games, the destination for video game guides and news, is seeking a talented and ambitious freelance writer that lives and breathes FPS games. Competitive applicants will have in-depth knowledge about a wide variety of the most popular first-person shooter video games and track current news and topics.
We're looking for a writer who knows their stuff when it comes to the following FPS titles:
- Call of Duty
- Overwatch 2
- Destiny 2
We require a minimum of 25 posts per month, but you are able to write more if desired. You will also be expected to cover other games when needed. Post types include gameplay guides for new releases and live service games, SEO/Top 10 lists, traffic-driving features, and breaking news on entertainment topics and select titles, companies, and gaming brands.
Applicants should have excellent English writing skills and be self-starters who can complete assigned news, guides, and features in a timely matter. Although not required, familiarity with using Google Trends to source coverage ideas is a plus. Past experience writing SEO content is highly desirable.
We're a global, digital newsroom, and all work is remote. Rates are $10 for news articles and quick question/answer guides, $20 for gameplay guides and shorter features, and $30 to $50 for reviews, longer guides, and features. There is no cap on how much you can write per month as long as your pitches are approved. Hired writers will also have ample pre-approved story ideas to choose from.
To be considered:
Submit a resume, a cover letter, and at least two relevant writing clips. Your cover letter should discuss your knowledge of games (including which games, franchises, and genres you intend to cover) and your experience writing guides and news. A cover letter and clips are required to be considered.
While freelancers have a flexible schedule, we do expect them to maintain a frequent presence on the site and utilize our staff's editorial resources. Good communication habits are also required.
