GAMESbrief looking for an intern/freelance
GAMESbrief is going from strength to strength.
Actually, that’s only partly true. My consulting business is going great. My book writing is taking up lots of time. I have ideas for events, and card decks, and free giveaways.
I don’t have enough time.
So I’m asking for help.
What I need from an intern or a freelancer
I am looking for someone to help me with GAMESbrief’s words, images and the website. I need someone to help me with my weekly guest posts, to source images (and fix the broken ones), and to format posts and books.
At this stage, it is not a writing gig. That may happen. Think of it as a part-time editorial assistant role. GAMESbrief is changing so fast that it could easily grow into more, but one step at a time, OK?
What am I looking for?
My priorities are a little vague. Enthusiasm and commitment may well trump hard skills. Here are my specifications:
- Self-starting and independent
- Very good at grammar, spelling and other dull but important stuff
- Understands basic HTML/CSS (e.g. what’s a <div>, and how do you close one?)
- Cares about the business of games. (note that the word “business” is more important than the word “games” – if you really want to be writing reviews of Duke Nukem Forever this is not the site for you.)
- Wants to learn about running a website, creating content, building a community, and turning all of that into revenue.
- Self-starting (Yes, it’s that important. I need someone I can delegate to).
- Has done something off their own bat already: built a game, run a website, ran a student society, created a free newspaper, organised a charity. Anything that shows you really do get on and do things.
- Based in London is an advantage (a real advantage – it’s where the events are, where networking is, where you can quickly make contacts – that’s a general point)
This is not a full-time gig. It’s an experiment. I’m looking to pay for one day a week initially. You’ll need to work with me to identify what needs to be done, and then do it.
