Why write with us?
Well, that’s an interesting question. The Outerhaven is an independent geek culture website that has been around since 2011. We provide news, reviews, editorials, and videos on anime, video games, manga, film & tv, and technology to our expanding audience. We’ve attended events such as Comic-Con, E3, PAX, and others, to provide a look at the ever-changing geek culture landscape.
The opportunities that are available for our writers are directly tied to the level of drive and passion that our writers demonstrate for our site. Who doesn’t want to see the next big game or watch upcoming anime before anything else? Maybe attend an invite and get invited to interview your favorite developer/voice actor or be surrounded by your peers in this space? If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, then why not write for our site.
What’s in it for you?
We’re currently listed in Open Critic’s review aggregator, and we’re working on being added to Metacritic. In addition to this, we average 150,000+ hits a month, which means that your work will be seen. And we’re just getting started. We can provide a nice launching pad that can provide you with experience if you’re new to writing or just haven’t had any traction yet. We’ll also teach you the ins and outs of article creation. Or, you know, you could just freelance with us as well.
Positions we’re looking to fill
All our positions are volunteer basis positions. We’re looking for people who are dedicated, and can roll with the punches, and won’t bail when things are down. We’ve had some amazing years here and we’re looking to add more staff so we can handle everything that the future has in store.
Currently, we’re looking for writers who are looking to actively contribute to the site daily. This also means that we expect you to maintain a high level of quality and grammar in your articles. We want people who love this stuff, people who are constantly following the news and trends. Someone who knows this stuff inside and out, because you’ll be aligned with others who are just as passionate as you are.
Experience with WordPress is a plus, but we will train the right candidates.
