25 Years Later has come a long way in the past year, with thousands of daily views and a strong and dedicated following on social media. We at 25YL believe that we can be the next BIG THING in the world of TV, Film, Gaming & Culture. To get there, we need your help.

Take a look at some of our other articles to get a feel of our style.

These are our current vacancies.


Gaming Writers

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
  • Franchises
  • Genres
  • Character Analysis
  • Retro Games, Consoles & Nostalgia
  • Gaming Lore
  • Gaming news
  • Independent 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 weekly basis and are willing to be regularly 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 in 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.

If you are interested in applying for this position, please send an email to andrew@25yearslatersite.com AND laura@25yearslatersite.com, letting us know:

  • 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

TV Writers

We need writers who are not only passionate about TV, but thoughtful/willing to engage in deeper analysis than you often get elsewhere. This isn’t about giving shallow reviews, but about digging in and providing a deeper style of analysis that our readers have come to expect from us. In particular, we are looking for people who are interested in:

  • Covering new shows that look intriguing (whether this is a matter of something that airs weekly on a weekly basis, or engaging with something that is released all at once on a streaming service)
  • Getting on as many pilots of new shows as possible, even if it ends up only being a matter of writing on the first episode (because, of course, sometimes things won’t be worth thinking about further)
  • Digging into older/existing shows and exploring things worth thinking about within them (there is a lot we could be doing here, to where I almost want to emphasize it over the above)
  • Contributing to a new series that focused on standalone episodes from Horror programs such as Tales from the Crypt and Sci-Fi shows such as The Twilight Zone
  • Writing relatively short news items about things related to TV that come up (offering a personal opinion/angle on the information and not just relaying it)
  • Discussing themes and the like that cut across various shows, or trends within the genre
  • Contributing to themed series, such as Cancelled Too Soon, Perfect Pilots, etc.

Experience in using WordPress is advantageous, but full training will be given. You would report to the Head of the TV department and the Editor-In-Chief, both of whom you would need to liaise with regularly for pitch and content approval using Slack, which you will be expected to be active within regularly.

If you are interested in applying for this position, please send an email to andrew@25yearslatersite.com AND caemeron@25yearslatersite.com, letting us know:

  • Your areas of interest in TV (genres, titles, franchises)
  • Any experience you have of writing
  • What else you are passionate about (Film, Music, Gaming, etc.)
  • Why you want to join 25YL

So if you have a passion for TV and want to try your hand at writing about what you love, get in touch.


Horror Writers

Horror is such a wide umbrella that the possibilities are endless. If you have a passion to write about any aspect of the horror genre, we are dying to hear what keeps you up at night! In case you might think that what you’re into is too fringe or not quite horror, try us! We are looking for writers that are interested in covering the best and widest plate of what horror has to offer; like the following:

  • New and cutting edge independent releases that otherwise may not find coverage on bigger sites
  • Re-evaluation and personal analysis of genre classics and overlooked gems
  • Deep dive analyses on directors, horror tropes, and horror films that you can’t get out of your head
  • Being a home for burgeoning young talent and offering the most insightful coverage on films from smaller production companies
  • Spotlight pieces on makeup/fx artists, score composers, stunt performers, and other people behind the scenes that help bring horror to life…the unsung heroes of the genre!
  • Keeping a finger on the pulse of the most exciting new releases in horror from the big studios

To sound a little bit like the Hell Priest himself, at 25YL those are just a few of the sights we have to show you! Above is a list of the type of coverage we are looking for, but none of this is set in stone and we are always looking for exciting new pitches from writers and ideas on how we can make our coverage even bigger and better!

So what are you waiting for boils and ghouls? It’s time to get weird, dark, and spooky with us at 25YL! It is a chance to be a part of a site that feels more like a family that is truly offering writers a unique way to cover cinema and tv.

Our writing positions are all about passion. WordPress experience will help navigate through the system, but training will be given. We have a Slack workspace where all work is planned.

We want people that want to be there with us and are going to be as engaged every day on this journey together as we are. We hope that you’ll join our team of writers and spread the good gospel of horror far and wide in whatever way is most passionate to you!

If you are interested in applying for this position, please send an email to andrew@25yearslatersite.com AND laura@25yearslatersite.com, letting us know:

  • Your areas of interest in Horror (genres, titles, franchises)
  • Any experience you have of writing
  • What else you are passionate about (Film, Music, Gaming, etc.)
  • Why you want to join 25YL

So if you have a passion for Horror and want to try your hand at writing about what you love, get in touch.
