Want to Work Your Way into Games Journalism? OnlySP Needs Writers!
Only Single Player is entering its third year of publication and we’ve got big plans for 2014. Only Single Player is a site that strictly covers the single player gaming experience and is one of the only, if not the only, site on the net that covers this particular specialisation. With 2014 beginning, the site has restructured the way it does news and will be putting a major focus on developer interviews, big and small, and investigative reporting. In January we became a part of the Crave Online network which hosts advertising for sites like Destructoid, PS Lifestyle and Game Revolution.
OnlySP is a professional site and we expect all of our writers to have quality writing skills, good time management and a dedication to the site. The site reaches around 5000+ unique visitors per day and is known for our quality articles. Per month we reach an average of 150,000 plus readers. If you want to be part of a growing site and community with a team that is great to work with, you’ve come to the right place.
Our community is one of the best places to be with readers creating good discussions in the comments rather than bickering about which game is better than the other. This leads to lower comment counts, but an overall better community.

Positions to be Filled
News Editor(s) (3-4 Positions Available)
As a news editor/writer you will learn how to do investigative reporting and break stories, rather than posting news that has been posted by every other site in the industry. You will learn how to conduct interviews with developers and send questions out to create your own news stories. We’re looking for dedicated members to add to our team that want to be an integral part of OnlySP and write news on a daily basis, both quickly and with quality.
At the same time, you will also have plenty of opportunities to review games and go to developer events, considering you can currently cover travel costs as the site is currently on a volunteer basis only.
Compensation: Game reviews, press passes to industry events, developer interviews
If you apply for this position, please provide some samples of your work.
Compensation: Access to review copies for PC reviews, digital codes for console reviews if required. Developer interviews via Skype. If you have your own Youtube channel you can promote it through the site, but content from the site and your personal channel must be kept separate. Access to press events.
If you’re interested in working with us, please fill out the application below and email to [email protected]
