Join the Party


The Well-Red Mage is always looking for friendly, articulate contributors who are passionate about gaming, writing, and community!

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 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, honoring our dedication to long-form content, 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!

    1. 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!

      1. Yes, maybe it is destiny because the first 4 games we have acquired for
        our N64 collection have not yet been reviewed on your illustrious blog.

        The blog tour is just our way of showing the love for some of our favorite
        Wordpress blogs that have brought us so much enjoyment in cyberland.

        Converse more via PM on Twitter?

  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.

    1. Thank you very much! We’ve put a lot of blood, sweat and joy into this place. We’re all the more excited to share it with contributors and guest writers! Thanks for expressing your interest. Would you be available to contact me through a private message on Twitter or Facebook? Then we can talk details. It’ll be my pleasure to get you situated here as soon as possible! We just gained two other contributors recently so we’re very excited!

      1. 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.

        1. 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!

          1. Whew! I’ve changed my post now. Again, looking through the backlog, and seeing some of your gaming faves I’m sure you’re absolutely gonna love Shovel Knight!

            I’m not on facebook :\, is there any other way we can chat that works for you? I’m on Twitter (@wakalapi) if PM’ing there works for you.

            1. Oh yes, Shovel Knight has been high on my list for some time. Die hard Mega Man fan here and from what I’ve seen that thing oozes classic Mega Man. No worries! Twitter will work great! I’ll contact you later on today about the process. 🙂

  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!
