Want To Write For Us?

Dying to get that unique gaming, movie, or pop culture opinion of yours out in the wild? Awesome! But unfortunately, we regret that we are not able to provide compensation for guest contributors at this time, and we don’t believe in writing for exposure.

Thing is, we’d love to have you, and are honoured that you’d like to be a part of this. But we’ve seen too many publications take advantage of aspiring writers to get free content from them. As much as we’d love the help, we’d rather not be part of the problem. Maybe one day we’ll be able to pay, and if that day comes we’ll change this description. We hope you’ll think of us! Until then, don’t settle. Keep punching up. <3
