Digital Trends, an independent tech lifestyle website with over 22 million readers per month, needs a freelance reporter to create compelling original content for the gaming section. We're looking for writers who have the talent, access, and drive to craft top-tier interview, op-ed, and feature pieces.
We are most interested in stories about the crossroads between gaming and mainstream technology culture. Examples include esports, blockchain, live streaming, and game accessibility. We're also looking for pitches that find a way to convert niche gaming culture trends into a story of broad interest.
Preference is given to writers with previous experience working for reputable publications that cover gaming, geek culture, or consumer technology. We also give preference to writers with existing connections in the industry that can be used to source story opportunities or grab quotes for story ideas. Turning around airtight copy while using excellent editorial judgment is crucial.
You'll need to find and secure relevant images, video, and other media from developers and other sources. We'd also like you to know how to record a screenshot or short video clips from PC and game consoles. Previous WordPress experience is a major plus.
While we're primarily in need of feature article pitches, we may also accept occasional pitches for game reviews or guides. As with our other content, our reviews and guides tend to focus on mainstream games.
To apply, please submit a resume alongside at least one pitch idea. Also include three previously published clips. A portfolio website can substitute for clips.
This is a freelance, telecommute assignment.
