Goomba Stomp is the new incarnation of the pop-culture web magazine formerly known as Sound on Sight. We provide smart readers with sharp, entertaining writing on a wide range of topics in pop culture, offering an escape from the usual hype and gossip. Unlike most websites that offer the brief review format, Goomba Stomp features long-form, in-depth coverage, and lengthy, well-researched articles alongside several award-winning podcasts. We believe that within today’s click bait-info-entertainment landscape there is still plenty of room to rigorously discuss the film and video game industry so that it can continue to flourish and remain an important voice of cultural and artistic expression.
We are not in the business of producing clickbait nor do we ask our writers to churn out the same news stories found on every other website. Instead, we are looking for talented writers who can deliver intelligent, well written, sometimes funny, but always engaging content. Writers have tremendous freedom when it comes to the subject matter they choose to write about and while editors will suggest themes and subjects to cover, we encourage writers to pitch their own ideas.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for talented contributors to join our team and help us produce opinion pieces, columns, features, reviews, and/or essays on a gaming, TV, and film. If you are passionate about writing, pop culture, this is an excellent opportunity to get involved in one of the fastest growing independent websites.
Nintendo fans are more than welcome. We love columnists and bloggers who have a unique voice. Bonus points for anyone with extensive knowledge of eSports and/or Tabletop gaming. We are also looking for an indie game reviewer and fans of PlayStation.
Feel free to visit our website @ www.GoombaStomp.com
Please note: This is not a full-time job. We are only looking for freelancers to work part-time to cover local events so there is no need to write a cover letter or upload a resume. Instead, tell us a bit about yourself in a few sentences and please upload a writing sample.
Please understand that because we often receive many applications, we cannot guarantee we will reply to every email, but we do try.
Thank you for taking an interest.
