Join the Party


The Well-Red Mage e-publication is always looking for friendly, articulate contributors who are passionate about gaming and writing. Whether you run a blog, you’re thinking of starting one but don’t want to deal with the hassle, or you just love gaming and you want to express your opinions about any game from any era, you’re welcome to join our anti-toxic party!

Our review structure is easy to follow and a requirement for review submission. Reviews/critiques should ideally be for games we’ve never reviewed before, so you can see our Archives for a list of games we’ve tackled. I can lend some assistance with editing but I prefer our collaborators have a firm grasp of the English language, and also wield some writing skills and interest in writing. I will ask for a sample of your work. I request little else other than sticking to our format and keeping things generally family friendly. I will not pressure you to finish a post “on time” or by a deadline. This remains a private site, not a professional one, and I believe in enjoying the writing process.

We’re on a quest to revitalize and renew the world of games writing!

    • Hi and thank you for the follow! I would love to begin a conversation with you about joining the our writing team and what that all entails. Would you be available to send me a PM on Twitter or Discord or FB? Or an old fashioned email works too.


  1. With Nintendo 64 now in tow, we think we could bring some
    fun to your entourage. (Also our love of online free to play)
    + Would love to feature The Well Red Mage on our summer
    blog tour if that would be of any interest to you? All the best!

  2. This is a really cool site, and I would love to contribute. I’ve written a few reviews on my blog (you can find them at about games you haven’t written about. It would be my pleasure to contribute if you’re interested.

      • Haha. So, I just skimmed through the backlogs and it appears you have yet to do a Shovel Knight review. Or did I miss it? I’m nearing the end of my first playthrough and would like to do a review of it when I get done. I also saw that you had a Punch Out post!… and you and I even made a similar joke about racism to the *exact* same picture. That’s an awkward and embarrassing feeling. I’m going to do a little trimming now.

        • I have yet to play Shovel Knight! I’m looking forward to picking that title up on the Switch, actually. It’s some kind of extended version if I remember right. That Punch-Out!! post was for an article which appeared in the news at the time about someone discovering a previously unknown visual cue in the game. Weird! I definitely do not even remember that joke you’re referring to! Haha!
          If you’d like to write a review, we can talk details on the Facebook page (using the instant messenger on our Well-Red Mage Page). I can get you your own custom mage sprite and everything!

  3. Am I welcome to join your party? If so, I’d love to write a couple of reviews for you here and there. It would be awesome if you or the Rage Mage could do a couple of guest articles for us and Stuff and That as contributors, too, but it’s up to you – as is the other decision. No idea what Mage I would be if this did happen!
