MNN Is Looking For Two Talented Writers To Join Our Team

My Nintendo News has an opening for two talented writers to join the team. So if Bowser’s fire burns in your belly and you can perfectly pick your words as easily as your mushroom power-ups, we’d love to hear from you. We’re looking for one US and one UK writer to join our (Squirtle) squad on a voluntary basis, so we can keep bringing Nintendo news around-the-clock to our readers. If your written work oozes with Nintendo-like charm and can keep the Boos at bay, make sure to read the following criteria below.

Essential:

  • Must be able to dedicate a sufficient amount of time on a daily, voluntary basis to chase up and write news articles.
  • Have a good grasp of English grammar and syntax.
  • Previous experience using WordPress.
  • Must have written for a news-based website in the past, with previous examples of online written work or a blog.

Beneficial:

  • Be familiar with My Nintendo News and our style.
  • Work well within a team.
  • Have a good nose for news, reporting on the facts and keeping opinion to a minimum.

In order to be considered for one of our openings, we would like to see a recent example of your written work. All applicants should aim to write a 100 – 200 word news post on a current Nintendo article of your choosing and attach it to your email. To submit an application, please use our contact form here and attach any subsequent examples of past work, stipulating your availability.

Thanks and good luck!

        1. Great comeback Ass Bitch. You can’t even spell let alone put together a sentence so what makes you think they would consider a dumbass like you?

          1. ๐Ÿซ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿญ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿš๐Ÿค๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿš๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿš๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ๐Ÿง๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฆ

            Here’s some emoji’s for broken down uncreative ass to chew on. I tired of feeding irrelevant bitches such as your self. Enjoy hoe!

            1. Do you read your comments before you post? learn how to put together a sentence without messing it up and then you can TRY to insult me Ass Bitch.

            2. And you really aren’t a Boss when I’m Batman. Bitchest need to be put in check before I have to get the baby powder out.

  1. Don’t worry people. I am very talented. I’ll volunteer. For some reason I’ve been motivated after that disgusting monster died.

    1. >>>Your pathetic skills are none existent you disgusting abomination>>>

            1. >>>My system upgrades are not fully done yet, some glitches might occur…>>>

      1. Obinna has returned to say nonsense, be ready for the lulz. BTW, on one video that speed akpodiete bitch said obinna has a brilliant future but i don’t think his future could be as brighter as his ugly yellow t-shirts.

        http://youtu.be/yoIM0zyL9iE

              1. “Iโ€™m always for the lulz, keep up the good work”

                You’re becoming more human lulz!

  2. yo no speak mucho inglish, but like Nintendo news very mucho.
    I can work very mucho for u amigo. No pay necesito.
    send mi amigo request!

        1. If she can learn to report the whole story, stop making typos, and leave out the bias, then sure.

    1. Yea, there’s me, Alba and Colette. We are looking for two more and that will be a complete team! Mission accomplished!

          1. >>>I’d like to have the moderation power only though, to erase the spammers and endless anonymous garbage that sometimes pops up>>>

  3. It requires to spend sufficient amount of time on this daily, but we don’t get paid even a dime, why ? it doesn’t work like this man.

    1. It’s mainly for the experience. There are those who want to get into blogging and this is a good first step for them as the blog has a large user base. Who knows you could hit it big and work for a bigger site in the future! You get training and a reference that you can use.

      1. besides this site ( I think you are the founder?) what do you do for a living? are you a professional journalist, reporter or something like that?

  4. “Must have written for a news-based website in the past, with previous examples of online written work or a blog.”

    Online, or in real life, this statement is why I found it hard to get a job before uni.

    “Oh, you must have experience, but we’re not willing to give you experience.” Nearly no one is willing to give experience, which means it is next to impossible to get jobs. Perhaps if they don’t have experience, but them on a probation period and see how they do, with a written mock story to test their abilities by?

    1. It’s handy if you have a WordPress blog or have worked on one before so we have some online written examples to go on. If you don’t, it’s no sweat. You can send me a Word document or Google Doc. Whatever :)

      1. yo, what about a translator or someone who post things in another language? that could be useful too! not many sites offer that option, most of them are just in english.

    2. This is why we’re asking candidates to send us a current news story of their choosing, written by them for MNN specifically. If they have a blog, write a news article on it, publish it. We ARE willing to give you experience. You just have to show us your way with words. :)

          1. >>>Sickr knows me, he knows I wouldn’t do anything to base his site>>>

    1. >>>It would only end up by suiciding this base, and of course that itรคs already dead>>>

  5. Lol. I haven’t ever had any experience writing news articles, but I usually try to be very careful with my word choice. I only wish that I could just write stuff on my own time. Sort of.. I understand the importance of finding news before others find it out. Just finding news and being able to post it would be nice.

  6. I have a talented Luna who is excellent at writing. I’ll ask my little darling if he’d love to join your team.

  7. Try getting someone who isn’t so biased towards nintendo. And I’d argue that most articles here aren’t well written at all. Lots of copy pasting. To be honest, the 3 or 4 people who send in all the articles for you should do it and get paid, most of your articles say thanks for sending this in .

    1. does every work a human being does should evolve being paid. #the greedy generation of capitalism

      1. Your jealous because you want to earn money by sitting on your basement playing videogames and fapping.

  8. What you basically have is an internship with no hope for a permanent paying position. You might be able to get a few good writers using this method, but you will never be able to keep anybody long term.

    Either way best of luck because I enjoy your site.

  9. Hope we get some more awesome writers, I’d do it but I can’t with my University course (doing games computing ;) ), I just have my own game updates on my blog as written work, but welcome to whoever joins MNN.

  10. Here’s some non Nintendo news

    And here’s a link to another website with news about a game Nintendo isn’t getting

    Anyone can so this you just need the internet and copy and paste skills

  11. As expected. Admins are finally leaving this doomed website, because they noticed that it’s completely retarded, plagued with haters, with tons of clickbait and misguiding news, and zero administration to filter mean comments. Hope this fucking website dies in a fire.

  12. I don’t have a blog nor have I blogged before, but I am a former English major and have a near-mastery of the language.

    Maybe some day… but for now, I’ll continue to just be a regular like Xeno, Commander, etc.

  13. Please hire someone who Will write a Nintendo news and not a Playstation or Xbox news just because Nintendo was mentioned.

    Although that was minimized, I just want to make sure.

    1. Neogaf fucking sucks, so ripping off their articles is a great contribution to the gaming world.

  14. Just a word to my nintendo news team, you doing a very good job. people are keen to criticise (not critizise) but when it comes down to demonstrate if they can do better, there is no one.

    I know I won’t be able to do the job you doing. I know I will not be able to keep my opinion as requested: “Have a good nose for news, reporting on the facts and keeping opinion to a minimum”.

    I just can imagine what will be my nintendo news my me in it…. I think it will be something like: “Nintendo will announce the NX soon, do you guys thinks it a total fuck up and they should put some work on the wii U, as well as planning the software line up before even thinking about releasing that bloody hardware? Give us your thoughts in the comment section”

    While I am at it, it will be a very good opportunity to introduce the current team (suggestion).

    Again good work and keep going that way.

  15. The National Sitcom Writing Competition is an excellent opportunity for students, professional writers and others to develop their funny stories, ideas, and life experiences into a pilot for a new television series or for an existing TV sitcom, Kaprall said in the release. The industry is always looking for new talent and fresh ideas and the Sitcom.
