Write For Us – Video Game Journalism Job

Get paid to write about games here at PwrDown




We are strictly looking for writers who can cover game guides, best-of lists and reviews at the moment. Sign up to become a writer here.

PwrDown is always looking for new, motivated writers to join our team. You will be given a platform to write on where you can discuss your favorite games, write guides and best-of lists. We will always be here to help you along the way, teaching you how to write content that visitors want to read.

When writing for us, you’ll be able to build up your own portfolio which you can use on your resume. Gather experience in video game journalism when it comes to writing & SEO, whilst also being paid for your work! That’s right, we pay $2 for every 1000 views and $0.25 per article published. Which is considerably more compared to other sites who pay a flat $0.50-$1 per 1000 views.

We also occasionally get access to early-release game keys for Steam, Xbox, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. So prove yourself to be a good reviewer, and you’ll be considered to receive them.


Make sure to read over the Terms & Conditions, they are non-negotiable and we can’t take on writers who don’t agree to them. Once you’ve signed up, check your email for a login link (make sure to check your spam folder). Once you’ve signed in, read the content on the dashboard, as well as the knowledge-base to get started. You can contact [email protected] for assistance.


We really don’t have any requirements, we hope that you can publish articles consistently, but there’s no quota or anything. If you wanted to maximise your income from posts, you’ll obviously want to write more than a few per week. We also require that all writers be completely fluent in English.

Writers are required to be 18 years old at least, and not be working on other gaming/technology related websites. Any published work needs to be proof read by you before being posted. You should have an interest in games, and own at least one console whether it be PC, Xbox One, PS4 or Nintendo Switch so that you can cover relevant content. No experience is needed to join our team, as we provide resources and documents to help you learn our dashboard and write engaging articles. This is not a guest posting experience.
