We are currently seeking:
A talented, driven gamer who loves to write about gaming and webcomics. The new writer will work closely with Games Section editor Al Rosenberg to craft meaningful essays about gaming, game culture, and webcomics, all through a feminist view.
Al is particularly seeking someone who has a great column in mind for the Games Section, loves tabletop (board and card) gaming as much as console and PC, keeps up with several different webcomics, and is excited to interview game developers.
- Strong writing ability (and knowledge of Chicago Manual of Style)

- Feminist interested in examining race, class, ableism, gender, etc. in games and the gaming community

- You’re a big webcomic fan
- You can commit to writing at least 1-2 articles a week
What we can offer you:
