Call for Writers: We're Looking for New Tutorials and Quick Tips!

by

We're looking for game developers to pass on their experience to Gamedevtuts+ readers on a regular basis, contributing tutorials and Quick Tips for intermediate-level devs. Ideally, we'd like a couple of articles from you each month - and we'd pay you, of course! Interested? Read on...


What You Need

  • Experience making (and completing) games: There are often opportunities for students and academics at Gamedevtuts+, but right now we're looking for game developers to pass on what they've learned from working on finished games.
  • Writing chops: You must be comfortable with the English language. You don't have to be a native English speaker, and we will proofread and edit your content before it's published, but we can't rewrite everything for you.
  • The ability to explain yourself: You don't need to have taught a class or written a book, but you should be able to explain the concepts behind the work you've done in a forum thread, a chat room, or a face-to-face conversation.

What We Need

We'd like you to write a couple of posts a month: two Quick Tips, two tutorials, or one of each.

In particular, we're looking for practical, platform-agnostic tutorials - where "platform-agnostic" means they can be understood in any development environment - like these:

You can expect to make $150 for each tutorial.

We haven't posted many Quick Tips yet, so I won't give any examples. The idea is, it should be a bite-sized piece of advice, and significantly shorter than a tutorial.

You can expect to make $50 for each Quick Tip.

To be clear, we're interested in both written posts and screencasts.

See this page for more general information.


How to Apply

If you're interested, we'll need the following information from you:

  • Your name.
  • A few sentences about yourself.
  • Examples of games you've worked on (these don't have to be commercial games, but they should be more than just game jam games and homework assignments).
  • At least two ideas for tutorials or Quick Tips you'd like to write for us.
  • Links to any tutorials you've written in the past, if applicable. (Screencasts, forum posts, reddit threads and so on are fine, too.)

Please email this information to gamedev[at]tutsplus.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
