Indie Haven is looking for contributors to join our talented group of aspiring game journalists. We’ll be up front about not being able to pay you with money, but our value is in providing structure and a top-notch group of editors to help you improve as a journalist. Several of our alumni have gone on to successful careers as game journalists, and contributing to Indie Haven could be an opportunity for you as well.

Diversity is important to us at Indie Haven and we welcome any women people of color or LGBTQ contributors in particular that want to offer their perspective on games.

If you are interested read on, and then use the contact form at the bottom of the page or email us at tips@indiehaven.com with “Contributor” in the subject line. Be sure and attach or provide links to previously published works and explain to us the reasons why you want to write for Indie haven.

What do we need?

We need reliable and motivated contributors willing to post quality content on Indie Haven. What matters most to us is regular production and a willingness to improve from week to week.

Indie Haven has a good reputation within the industry so writers will have the opportunity to work on things like game reviews, game previews, opinion articles, interviews and feature articles. For the video savvy, Indie Haven also has a YouTube and a Twitch channel for those interested in utilizing that skill.

What are our expectations?

We are looking for motivated contributors that are willing to work as a team and write a variety of different articles:

  • The flexibility to write anything from a 150 word news post to a 1000 word opinion article or game review.
  • We strive to be a professional publication and the editors here will hold you accountable to agreed upon deadlines and minimum levels of production.
  • A willingness to be edited. Every story is read by an editor before hitting the front page and we will read your work thoroughly to ensure it hits a high level of quality before ever reaching the front page.

What do we require?

Regular communication amongst fellow contributors and editors. That means the ability and willingness to use Discord, Trello and Google Documents. Ideally, all contributors and editors should post at least one thing to the site per week. That could be anything from news posts to game reviews. But, we understand that an unpaid role makes it difficult to prioritize this over paid work.
