    GameSkinny is a collaborative publishing platform where members hone their writing skills, work with editors, and put their articles in front of an audience, getting real online publishing experience and access to the stats that matter.

    There are 2 ways to get started on GameSkinny:

    1. Be a Guest Writer

    "It's fun to dip into writing about a subject I love, but without the commitment to running a personal blog." - Kazz

    Anyone can be a GameSkinny guest writer. Some write once every few months, others post a new article every day. It's totally up to you, it's just about sharing what you know and love with other gamers! 

    • No pressure, no deadlines: write what you want, when you want.
    • Talk with editors: Whether you're a new writer or a pro looking for somewhere to blow off steam, the GS editors are here to help.
    • Earn $: With our Bounty program there is no limit to what you can earn.

    2. Apply for the Journalist Training Program

    "GameSkinny's internship has changed everything for me.  This is what I want.  Without the encouragement of my team, the helping words of Amy and Katy and the wonderful people taking time to read and comment on my articles, I might not be going down this path." - Reilly
