Write For Us
Do you like to write about TV?
Do you want to increase your writing profile online, reach a larger audience with your words, and get paid for your efforts? Or perhaps you simply want to gain valuable experience with a fast-growing entertainment news magazine?
If so, we would love to hear from you.
ScreenSpy magazine delivers up-to-the-minute scoop on primetime TV to TV Junkies across the US via celebrity interviews, breaking industry news, exclusive video sneak peeks, high definition photo galleries and more.
Our press relationship with both Cable and Broadcast Networks means we’re uniquely positioned to deliver news and updates in real time.
Our next day reviews and recaps break down the latest episodes of your favorite TV shows, while our opinion pieces, features and editorials supplement our slate with insights and analysis of the TV landscape and the industry itself.
In addition, our ongoing liaison with Hollywood PR means our regular interviews with those in front or behind the camera are timely, relevant and above all, news-worthy.
From January 2016 we now pay writers for bylined articles: features, list style articles, opinion pieces, reaction pieces, TV theories, and all other original editorials. Please get in touch (see below) to learn more, pitch us an idea or inquire about our rates. Also, check out our brand new Features Section to see the kind of thing we’re looking for and have recently paid to feature in our magazine. This type of contribution style will appeal to TV aficionados with strong opinions, an in-depth knowledge of their medium, and the ability to put ideas and points across in a clear, logical and engaging manner.
CONTRIBUTORS (NON PAID)
Right now at ScreenSpy we are looking to broaden our coverage of Fall 2016 TV. As such we are actively seeking writers who can generate once weekly, short, upbeat review/recap style pieces on one or more popular TV shows airing over the Fall/Winter 2016 period.
Please check below to see what shows we are currently seeking writers to cover. (Or if unsure, just ask in your next email!)
MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD
THIS IS US
THE BLACKLIST TIMELESS
We don’t mind if you have no previous professional writing experience as long as your reviews are of a professional standard. As ScreenSpy is an online medium with a high daily turnover, we require writers to be able to submit articles no later than the morning following the US airing of the episode under review, unless it airs elsewhere first.
Additionally, writers should be available to communicate briefly with the editor by email or twitter when submitting material.
Whether you are looking for an audience, experience, recognition or just a home for your work, we would like to hear from you.
Current contributors with ScreenSpy generally have some experience writing for another magazine or blog (not required but an advantage) have English as a first language, live in the US or Canada (again, not required but preferable for timely submissions) and have a love of TV and/or film. We also cannot accept contributions that subsequently appear in other magazines, or personal blogs.
Here’s how to get in touch.
Email the editor at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tell us a little about yourself and any writing experience you many have, and what relevant (on the air, or airing 2016/17) shows you might like to cover. We may ask to see a writing sample, or ask you to submit a sample review.
