GameStah is currently looking for two types of news reporters to write articles on this site, and you can apply to be either of them, or both, if you wish.
- Current Affairs News Reporter
If you wish to become a Current Affairs News Reporter, you will be required to write articles which let GameStah viewers know of events occuring inside the gaming community. Events such as LANs, reports of local and overseas gaming tournaments and the releases of long-awaited games and other related events that should be covered. A Current Affairs News Reporter must be impartial and cannot express distaste upon certain events, no matter how bad they actually are.
- Column Writer
GameStah plans to open up columns where selected writers are allowed to write upon the state of gaming or gaming-related events, competitions or people. This is similar to an editorial in that you express your emotions over the article you are presenting. An example would be your annoyance at the fact CoD 2's developer support is extremely limited (now I'm beginning to lose impartial journalism). All articles that you type would be of your opinion however, and Gamestah will not be held responsible if you lose friends over them.
Previous Experience and Requirements
No previous experience is required for writing on the Gamestah site, however, we do have a few small requirements:
- Must be 17 years old or over
- Must be available enough to write at least 1-2 articles a week
- Must live in Australia
However, if you have credentials in Writing or Journalism, or hell, even have passed Year 12 English, they will give you an extreme advantage in being picked. So will previous experience with writing articles for a gaming site.
How to apply?
Simply email email@example.com with the following details:
- Your name and nickname
- Your age
- Where you live (No, not your exact address!)
- Your E-mail
- Which news reporter you would like to be (Current Affairs / Columnist)
- Any previous experience
- Any writing crendentials
and a small paragraph why you would like to become a News Reporter.
We will contact you with our decision soon after you apply
