Blizzard Watch is looking for a new writer to expand our coverage

Blizzard Watch is on the hunt for a new writer to cover day-to-day news, writing 15 to 20 posts per month and paid on a per-post basis. We want people who can write conversationally — we aren’t writing college essays or regurgitating patch notes. We’re players talking to other players, adding context, opinion, and our own expertise to the latest news. Potential writers should have a working knowledge of all Blizzard games, with deep-dive knowledge of WoW as well as at least one other Blizzard game — preferably Diablo or Hearthstone. Pluses would include experience with D&D or tabletop gaming.

Think you fit the bill? We want someone with:

  • The flexibility to write about a variety of Blizzard games and other geeky topics.
  • Expertise in Diablo or Hearthstone.
  • Good grammar, with the ability to clearly convey knowledge to newbie and veteran players alike.
  • Basic image editing skills. You’ll need to find and resize images for posts and galleries.
  • The ability to follow instructions. We have specific editorial guidelines and a process for assigning, claiming, and writing posts, which you have to follow.

To apply, please fill out the form below. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, we will not be able to respond to every application we receive.

All applications must be submitted by October 14, 2019 to be considered. 

  • If you have any public social media profiles, link them here.
  • We can only work with people over the age of 18.
  • City / State / Country
  • Let us know who you are and why you'd be a great member of the Blizzard Watch team.
  • We're looking for writers to cover a variety of Blizzard games and other geeky topics. Let us know about the games you're most experienced with and anything off-topic you're interested in writing about (particularly TTRPGs).
  • We don't assign shifts or hours, but give us an idea of when you're usually available to write.
  • Write a Blizzard Watch-style news post of around 300 words. Be sure you aren't just repeating the news: we want every post to include analysis or opinion.
  • Coming up with great article ideas is just as important as being able to write great articles. Give us a headline and short description for potential Blizzard Watch posts.
  • If available, link to examples of your writing for other publications (or even forums or a personal blog). You aren't required to have previous professional experience, but if you do this gives us an idea of your writing style.
Blizzard Watch is made possible by people like you.
