The position has been filled! Thanks for everyone who applied!

It’s that time again! We’re looking to add several members to our Outerhaven Productions family and we’re opening the door once again. We’re looking to bolster by adding a Nintendo Staff Writer and are actively looking for someone who eats, breathes and loves Nintendo. Are you that someone?

You’ll be working hand in hand with a determined and passionate bunch of gamers, geeks and you’re sure to find a place to call home. You’ll be tasked to write on the news as it happens, editorial / feature pieces and will able to try your hand at writing a game review or two.

Seeing this position is for a Nintendo writer, you’ll need to be passionate and knowledgeable about the world of Nintendo. This includes their past, present and their future. You’ll have to be a great writer, motivated, and looking to learn and improve. You don’t have to be a professional either. If you have a good grasp of the English language, love to write and love video games, then this may be the position for you!

We’re opening up the positions strictly for North America. While we’d love to open this up to the rest of the world, time zones add a bit of complexity that makes it a tough nut to crack. 

This is a volunteer only position that may grow into something more! This is a Nintendo specific position and said persons will only be required to work on Nintendo themed works.  

Time to apply runs from 7/26/2016 – 8/11/2016.

  • Access to your very own Outerhaven email and cloud storage account
  • Access to press only events and public events (After being aboard for several months)
  • Your very own The Outerhaven Polo shirt (After being aboard for several months)
  • Joining a growing team of individuals who share the same love of gaming as you do.

  • Writing 5-6 articles a week, 200-300 words each.
  • Reviewing Nintendo games (optional)
  • Representing The Outerhaven at various events
  • Capturing gameplay from various Nintendo games
  • Participation on our weekly podcast
