How many games will you send?
This depends pretty much entirely on you. We’ll start you off with one game at a time, as to not overwhelm you. As you continue to cover stuff for us, we’ll continue to send stuff for you to cover. So basically, however many games you want to review, is the number of games we’ll send you.
Do I need to have prior writing experience?
If you’ve never written for an online publication before, don’t worry; we’ll end up asking for you to write an example piece, so we can get a feel for your writing style.
