Do you wake up in the middle of the night, screaming lines from your favorite movies into the dark? Do you spend every waking moment of your life thinking about video games, or breaking down the respective qualities of your favorite television shows?
No, no you don’t. No one does that. But if you DO like any of these three entertainment forms and have a knack for writing, we can use you here at Geek Binge. We’re currently hiring a select group of writers to help out on our coverage on everything movies, TV, and video games. First and foremost, if you want to write for Geek Binge, you should know this: we’re not a press release site. We don’t just report on news, copy and pasting press releases as we go. If you are really serious about writing here, you must have a strong opinion about things and be willing to express that opinion in EVERY article you do. Other than that, we’re open to anyone.
Geek Binge is a newly formed site though, so I’ll be brutally honest with you; technically we have very little move to put towards staff wages. But since I understand how much it sucks to do this and not get paid for it, I will be paying every writer I write anyways. If you’re chosen to write for Geek Binge, we will pay you a starting fee of 0.50 cents a post plus $1.oo per thousand page views. Yes, I know; that’s nothing to brag about. But the pure economics of this is that we can’t afford to pay you anymore than that for the time being. In a few months, when we begin to build more of an audience and get more exposure, this pay will expand. In addition, we’ll have various other incentives for your contributions every so often, from Blu-Ray’s to Amazon Gift Cards to straight up cash In addition, we have a few press contracts that give the sites freebies every so often that I’m more than happy to share with the rest of the staff. I hate the idea of not compensating writers for their work, so I’m going to try my best with the limited amount of cash we have. Anyways, here are the positions we currently have open:
Video Game Writers (3 Positions Open):
Responsible for providing video game content on a frequent basis ranging from news, reviews, editorials, list, and anything else worth talking about in the video game industry. With E3 coming up, a preference for video game news/editorials is definitely a must.
