We’re looking to bolster our numbers. Interested?

We’re looking for writers to bolster our ranks! Are you that person?

If you enjoy writing and sharing your thoughts/opinions with the world, then we may have the job for you!

Who Are We?

The Outer Haven is an enthusiast based community that was formed in 2011 by people who share the same passion on many topics and subjects such as the following; Video Games, Music, Animation, Movies, Technology, etc. So, you could basically call us an enthusiast site which would better sum us up. All members of this creative community are equal as there’s no one person more important than the other nor do we have a script, agenda or outline. We report and talk about what intrigues us and offer our own spin on many things. We’ve been around since 2011 and while at times it may seem like we are similar to say a video gaming or anime website, we are neither of those things. We all share that passion and while we do wish to be both of these things, all of the staff have other jobs that aren’t directly related to those concepts. So while we’d like to go that route, we simply don’t have the workforce for that. 

But you can help change all that!

We’re looking for writers who are passionate about Video GamesAnime / Animation, ToysFilms / Movies andComics / Manga. You should have some prior writing experience  and we’re looking for people who have the availability to write 1-2 articles per day, whether it is a news article, review or feature. As long as it fits into our content it’s completely up to you on what you write about.

Please note, all articles MUST be ready to publish. That means spelling, grammar, punctuation and formatting must be up to standard. We’re trusting you to do a good job and no one likes to be micro-managed, right?

What’s it it for you?
*In a Unicron voice-over* 

Your Bargaining Posture Is Highly Dubious

All kidding aside you will be given your own personal Theouterhaven email address, Theouterhaven personal cloud account (storage) and access to review copies of any swag that we get to review.

We are looking for contributing writers for the following areas:

Positions that we’re looking to fill:

  • Game Reviewers. Reviews have to be up to 800 words and written order of Story, Gameplay, Graphics, Sound, Presentation, Verdict.

  • New Writers. Write up to 300 words and post twice a day Looking for two or more news posts a day. These can even be gameplay trailers posts. It’s 100% up to you. As long as it falls into out content (Video Games, Anime / Animation, Toys, Films / Movies and Comics / Manga) then the sky is the limit.
  • Features Writers: One minimum article a week. Looking for one unique feature a week. It will be up to the creative mind of the writer to decide. This is your chance to shine, get up on your soapbox and let the world know how you feel. Go ahead, we got your back.
