25YL has come a long way in the past year, with thousands of daily views and a strong and dedicated following on social media. We believe that we can be the next BIG THING in the world of TV, Film, Gaming & Culture. To get there, we need your help.
You may or may not have noticed, but we have been dipping our toes into the world of Gaming here lately. It makes sense for us to take this step—we know our readers enjoy playing games as well as watching TV & Film and there is such a vast quantity of titles, genres, and franchises to write about; old and new. So we are planning to dive in deep this Fall.
But we have always done things a little differently here at 25YL. Our writers are encouraged to share their personal experiences, with an independent view and from the heart. We enjoy exploring theory and analysis when it comes to TV, Film and Culture, so why should Gaming be any different? The answer is…it shouldn’t! But we do need more people to join our Gaming Team to make this happen. If you think this may be of interest to you, please take a look at the advert below.
We have dipped our toes into the world of Gaming over the last few months, but plan to dive in fully this Fall.
We are in need of passionate and outgoing writers who are keen to get their teeth stuck into daily news to keep the site up to date with relevant and topical articles.
In addition, we want to hear your opinion. Unlike many sites, at 25YL we encourage our writers to express their views and share their knowledge and expertise of Gaming by writing in-depth analysis, with a unique angle and independent voice. Areas that we would like to cover include:
- Day 1 and Day 25 Reviews of New Games
- Gaming News
- Character Analysis
- Retro Games, Consoles & Nostalgia
- Gaming Lore
- Indie titles
- General/topical opinion pieces
This position will require multiple writers who are able to report on breaking news quickly, can commit to writing reviews and articles about gaming on a regular basis and are able to be active in our Slack Workspace.
It is imperative that you have a very strong grasp of the English Language, grammar and punctuation, and are able to present articles in a factual manner, but with a flare of personality and creativity.
Experience of using WordPress would be advantageous, but full training will be given. You would report to the Head of Gaming, who you would need to liaise with regularly for pitch and content approval.
- Your areas of interest in Gaming (genres, titles, franchises)
- What else you are passionate about (TV, Film, Music, etc)
- Any writing experience you have
- Why you want to join 25YL
So if you have a passion for Gaming and want to try your hand at writing about what you love, get in touch.
Thank you for taking an interest in working for 25YL. We hope to hear from you soon.
