Game Journo Gig Alert – New iOS site PocketNext is seeking writers

Another freelance gig alert crossed my desk, so I figured I’d pass it along in case anyone is looking for work. A new, soon-to-launch iOS site called PocketNext is looking to hire a handful of steady freelancers to tackle a wide range of content for the site. It’s a paying gig, and though it doesn’t list specifics on the site, the $$ rates are reasonable for someone who’s looking to get their feet wet or transition from volunteer writing to paying work. Hit the jump for more details.

I know they’re looking to hire 5-6  folks, so your chances of getting considered are pretty good. Here’s more info directly from their job listing:
