Write for Geek Binge!
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 no money what so ever. So we really shouldn’t be paying you. That said, we will. If you’re chosen to write for Geek Binge, we will pay you a starting fee of $2.00 for every 1000 page views you bring in. Yes, I know; that’s pathetic. 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. 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.
Wait, you’re still reading this? That’s fantastic! Here at Geek Binge, we don’t have this huge list of requirements that you need to have to write here. As long as you can write, we will take you. So what are you waiting for? If you’re interested in joining us, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject header “Write for Geek Binge.” All I ask for the application is that you include at least one writing sample (doesn’t have to be previously published, I just want to get a feel for your writing style and tone) and a short, 50 word description about who you are. I don’t need to know personal details (like age, relationships, locations, etc.) if you don’t want to share them, but even something like your favorite movie or video game will do. And speaking of this, please include which subject you want to write about here: movies, TV, or video games. If you’re willing to write about two of them or all three, that’s great too!
Thanks for your interest and I hope to have you (yes, YOU!) as a part of the team.
