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, you are looking for a community of writers to be a part of, 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!
We host a diverse range of content from writers around the world: long-form video game critiques, second opinion reviews, editorials and opinion pieces, recurring columns, group collaborations, “day-in-the-life” blog posts, first impressions and highlights, musical interludes, and podcasts! You can read more about our main types of content, as well as how our 10-point grading scale breaks down, on our Instruction Manual page.
TWRM is primarily a review site. Our formatting is easy to follow and a requirement for all reviews and critiques. 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 1) sticking to our format, 2) honoring our dedication to long-form content, 3) getting a mage avatar, 4) keeping things generally family-friendly, and 5) allowing The Well-Red Mage to feature your post exclusively for a two-week period. 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. You also retain authorial rights to your posts here, which you can take down or alter however you see fit (within the previously described rules).
We’re on a quest to revitalize and renew the world of games writing!
