These days, publishing great content online is not hard.. being heard is!

There is so much content online now that personal blogs, YouTube videos, in-depth forum posts.. they’re getting lost, overlooked, drowned out.

We think that’s lame.

So, we built a place for intelligent folks like you to have your opinion heard, shared, discovered and discussed. We believe in giving gamers a space, and we’ve already had great success with Guild Launch, where guilds and gaming groups can create their own websites, so….

We created GameSkinny.

A publishing platform built from the ground up that does a few very specific things, and does them very well: 

  1. Gives you a place to create a games writing portfolio
  2. Gives great content exposure to an established audience
  3. Gives serious contributors a chance to improve their skills through on-site info, tutorials, and interaction with GameSkinny Editors
  4. Rewards top writers with real, actual money through our Bounty program.

Write about video games, build your audience, and be as rad as you can be.

So there ya have it. It’s that simple. Give GameSkinny a try. We think you’ll like it. Below is a collection of articles and resources to get you started.
