What We Expect Of You
We’re looking to take on two news freelancers:
- 80 news pieces per month – Ideally split to around 20 pieces per week.
- 20 news pieces per month – Ideally split to around 5 pieces per week.
Both roles would be only be expected to post news on a weekday. We’re also not expecting you to write essays, we’re simply looking for concise information, with a bit of personality that our readers expect.
We focus on Asian video games and anime, and whilst we do cover a lot of news, we like to have a bit of fun at the same time. We’re happy to get weird and a little bit crazy, and we like to scour the web for really strange things that we think our audience will find hilarious. When we’re not being silly, we like to write actual, serious reviews and opinion pieces.
If you think you have a nose for scouring the web for the latest Asian gaming or anime news, and can write in a professional (and sometimes cheeky) manner, we can’t wait to hear from you!
You will be paid on a monthly retainer basis. More details on this will be discussed during the application process.
If you don’t hear back from us, don’t worry – we’ll be keeping a record of every applicant for future opportunities, and we’ll be in touch.
