Join The New Freelance Game Journo Network Facebook Group!

gamejournogroupbannerfacebook copyFor a long time now, I’ve been meaning to build a place online where the many awesome game journalists, freelancers, and writer folks I interact with on a one-on-one basis can freely interact with one another! Many of you have the same questions, challenges, and obstacles, and it makes super sense to me to introduce everyone to each other so we can share insights and grow together as a community!

That’s why I finally created the Freelance Game Journo Network. It’s a private Facebook group that’s designed to be a safe place for game-centric writers — both newcomers and more seasoned pros alike — to network and communicate. If you’d like to join, just hit the link and make a request. I’ll be happy to approve it and welcome you aboard.

Right now we’re just getting started, but we’re growing quickly and I hope to use the group for lots of great things in the future — pitch jams, peer editorial feedback, resource sharing, Qs, and other helpful things. For example, we just started compiling a document of paying gig leads for smaller/medium size sites that are open to new writers!

The rules are simple: be friendly, be cool, participate in whatever way you feel comfortable, learn, and have fun!
