How to Get Started

  1. Signup

Everything you write goes into your Portfolio. Your Portfolio is your own personal space, displaying all of your GameSkinny writing. Anyone can see your Portfolio, and your writing, if they click on your profile. So share your Portfolio link on your Twitter, your Facebook, your LinkedIn -- wherever you’d like.

Our editorial team chooses the best content to be promoted to the full GameSkinny community (homepage, newsletters, social, etc.). If your content isn't selected for the homepage it is still eligible for our bounty program and still fully visible by our community.

What Type of Content?

Ultimately, you can write whatever you’d like! If you’re aiming for the most views, the most engagement, a dedicated fanbase and a coveted spot on the GameSkinny home page, here’s what has done well in the past:

  • News
  • Guides
  • Tips & Tricks
  • Top Lists or Listicles (best mods, best weapons, hardest bosses, etc.)
  • Reviews
  • Exploration of Gaming Topics and Culture (Gamergate, diversity in gaming, trends and hot topics)
  • Videos (trailers, walkthroughs, etc.)

It’s a pretty great feeling to see something you’ve written published on GameSkinny. It’s an even better feeling when you are on the front page. You'll gain so many lucrative skills you wouldn’t have learned otherwise. Who knew my experience using Google Analytics and mastering SEO would land me a job in digital media.

Thank God for GameSkinny, because I couldn't have found a better place to help me improve my writing and get a new start. Contributing to GameSkinny was like a breath of fresh air. On most sites, you're either a full-fledged member of the staff, or at best, you can blog independently amongst the community.

The staff are all great at GameSkinny. I got a lot of helpful feedback from everyone, and I still love the approach GameSkinny has taken to games journalism. There's no other site where you can write up an idea and within the day, get free editorial feedback and helpful suggestions, and maybe even end up on the front page.
