1001LOVE / ISTOCK / GETTY IMAGES PLUS

Your Vision, Our Future

We are expanding our film, tv, games, comic book, and anime sections and we are currently looking for a few talented pop-culture writers to join our team and help us produce opinion pieces, columns, features, reviews, and/or lists on a regular basis. If you are passionate about writing, film, TV, comics, and/or gaming, this is an excellent opportunity to get involved!

Essential Duties & Responsibilities:

Care about writing as a craft
Are eager to brainstorm ways to expand our coverage
Are comfortable with WordPress or willing to learn
Are invested in helping us develop original content
Publish content that will move the needle

Most Important…

Above all else, we are looking for applicants with a passion for writing as well as the type of content we cover. Yes, you watch movies, but you also have a wide range of interests and a good understanding of broader pop culture.

Who are we?

Tilt is the joint effort of a team of like-minded writers from across the globe. We provide smart readers with sharp, entertaining writing on a wide range of topics in pop culture, offering an escape from the usual hype and gossip. Unlike most websites that offer the brief review format, Tilt features long-form, in-depth coverage, and lengthy, well-researched articles alongside several award-winning podcasts. In addition, while we place an emphasis on the gaming industry, we find value in all modes of expression, as well as the intersections therein, an ethos that applies to all our main areas of interest (Film, TV, Comics, and Games). There is more to discover in all of these mediums than ever before, and we strive to make our enthusiasm and expertise infectious.

Why choose us?

Writers define their own schedule and we welcome feedback. We are not in the business of producing clickbait nor do we ask our writers to churn out the same boring news stories found on most websites. Instead, we are looking for talented writers who can deliver intelligent, well-written, sometimes funny, but always engaging content. Writers have tremendous freedom when it comes to the subject matter they choose to write about and while editors will suggest themes and subjects to cover, we encourage writers to pitch their own ideas. We are looking to build a solid team of dedicated writers who actually care about the site and want to stick around and help us grow.

There are other benefits to writing for us, such as exposure for your writing, a nice piece to add to your online resume, and a chance at press badges for trade shows, festivals, and press events including TIFF, Cannes, Fantasia, Fantastic Fest, SXSW, E3, GamesCon, NYCC, Tribeca, NYFF, Hot Docs, SDCC and so much more. Not to mention you’ll get to meet and work with a great group of writers who share the same passions that you do for gaming in all its forms. We really want to make sure everyone is writing about what they are passionate about and more importantly, we go out of our way to make sure people see your hard work.

Reach

Our primary market and target audience are students between the age of 18 and 30 living in North America. However, we do reach a larger audience worldwide and average anywhere from 400, 000 – 500, 000 visits a month.

Do we pay?

Yes, we do pay but the most important thing you should know is that we are looking for team players. We have a strong crew of talented writers, but we are also all friends and we stay in touch on a daily basis via Workplace. We want writers who want the site to succeed so we can slowly increase our budget and we want writers who love being a part of our community. And that is what makes us different than most sites. Our writers actually get to know each other and over time become good friends. Writing for Tilt is great for your portfolio and an excellent way to network and cover events worldwide – but don’t expect to get rich writing for the site. In other words, if you are looking for a full-time job, this gig isn’t for you.
