Want to Write for Jump Dash Roll?

January 24, 2020

Jump Dash Roll is looking for writers!

Since we started in February 2018, we've published over 600 articles and increased our writing staff to 10 people from all over the globe. In itself this makes us proud but the response from our readership has been just as brilliant - in the past year we've seen our visitors grow by 230% and our page views by a whopping 480%. That's four hundred and eighty - wow! More people are finding JDR, each of them is reading more articles and they're all staying for longer.

While that's absolutely amazing growth in the past year, we want to keep going - and you can help!

If you have a passion for gaming and are a competent writer - even if you've never written about the industry before - we'd love to hear from you. Whether it's news, reviews, features, retro pieces, long reads, opinions, esports, mobile or casual gaming - or anything in between - we can provide a comprehensive introduction to writing for us, and our editors can help you hone your craft to make your pieces sharp, relevant, and enjoyable. While these writing roles are voluntary, we also provide review copies for many new game releases - both indie and AAA - once you've proven to be a reliable and valuable contributor to the site.

To apply:

Please contact us with your application. Include your name, location, which platforms you can cover, and explain why you'd be a good fit for Jump Dash Roll.

If you have previously been published, please include at least one sample piece, (and a maximum of three). If you haven't been published, this isn't a barrier - we can discuss a trial assignment to see if your writing will work for the site. We are keen to help enthusiastic new authors get a foot in the door of a very competitive industry.

We look forward to hearing from you!

I've been gaming for 30+ years on the Commodore VIC-20 to the Nintendo Switch and most things in-between. I enjoy all kinds of games but if I had to pick a couple right now, I'd say I adore Mario and love Dark Souls. I can talk about either ad infinitum...
