Do you like to write about TV?

Do you want to increase your writing profile online, reach a larger audience with your words, or gain valuable experience with a fast-growing entertainment news magazine?

If so, we would love to hear from you this summer.

ScreenSpy magazine delivers up-to-the-minute primetime scoop 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.

Right now at ScreenSpy we are looking to broaden our coverage of Summer 2017  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 Summer 2017 period.

Please check below to see what shows we are currently seeking writers to cover. (Or if unsure, just ask in your next email!)

 

SHADOWHUNTERS (Freeform)

HARRY SHUM JR., MATTHEW DADDARIO

Cheers boys! (Freeform/John Medland)
HARRY SHUM JR., MATTHEW DADDARIO

There are just 10 episodes remaining in season 2. We’re looking for that special someone who knows and loves the show (and perhaps even the books too?) and all its ships (#Clace #Sizzy and of course #Malec!) to craft 10 next day recaps/reviews over the summer period. Please drop us a line if you think this might be you.

 

STITCHERS (Freeform)

Kirsten, Camille, Cameron and Linus are back for another 10 weeks of of witty banter, family intrigue, secrets and, of course, stitching! The action picks up with season 3, starting June 5 on Freeform, and if you just HAVE to know if Kirsten will manage to bounce from her last stitch and rejoin the real world, then maybe you also love this show enough to want to write about it over the summer period? If this is your summer go-to show, and you’re kind of in love with the idea of crafting 10 next day recaps over the summer, let us know!

 

DARK MATTER (Syfy)

We know it must be summer time when syfy’s darkly humorous Dark Matter is back on our screens. The show returns for a third season of goodness from June 9th on Syfy. Do you know your 3 from your 6? Were you sad to see 1 go? Are you excited to see where the next 13 episode season will take the crew of the Raza, and, for that matter, learn if 4 will ever be truly 4 again?

If these characters and their adventures move you strongly enough to want to write about them once a week over the summer we’d love to hear from you.

 

KILLJOYS (Syfy)

Ten episodes. That’s right. Season 3 is hitting the Quad this summer from June 30 0n Syfy, and we’re looking for a special someone to produce 10 richly detailed recaps chronicling the (mis)adventures of D’avin, Dutch and Johnny.

As Killjoys contains such a richly detailed universe, and such strongly defined characters, we’re looking for a special someone who knows the show well to take on this special 10 week summer project.

 

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD (AMC)

June 4. 16 episodes. Are you willing to take a walk with TV’s most dysfunctional family this season? We’re looking for someone who is familiar with Fear the Walking Dead (and perhaps big brother The Walking Dead too?) to create 16 once weekly recaps over the summer period. If Travis, Nick, Madison, Alicia and Strand are who who keep you glued to the screen during the summer weeks, and you feel the itch to write about their ongoing struggles to reinvent, regroup and redjust in the face of the ongoing apocalypse, then this job might just be for you.

USA NETWORK

SUITS

Suits will see some changes as it enters its 16-episode seventh season on July 12th. Not only will the show air its landmark 100th episode on August 30, but the season ahead will see some major changes. Mike is out of prison and back working with Harvey, Donna wants ‘more than money’ but isn’t sure what that is yet, Jessica Pearson has officially left the building, and Louis is alone again.

We know season 7 will throw us even more curveballs. That’s why we’re looking for someone who knows these characters well, isn’t afraid to express an opinion (seriously, can we have #Darvey this year?) and can navigate the more technical and legal details of each episode just enough to be able to craft a recap on a weekly basis.

This season returns with 16 episodes, 10 of which will likely play out over the summer period, and the remaining 6 in the New Year. Are you a Suits superfan? Let us know if you think this job might be for you. (No fake lawyers need apply. Just kidding! Get your fake resume in here pronto!)

 

I WANT TO JOIN THE WRITING TEAM. HOW DO I GET STARTED?

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 day 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 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, even a personal one (not required but hey, that’s always an advantage, right?) 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. 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: submissions@screenspy.com

Tell us a little about yourself and any writing experience you many have, and what relevant (on the air, or airing summer 2017) shows you might like to cover. We may ask to see a writing sample, or ask you to submit a sample review.
