TheReviewGeek is an inclusive company and our team includes talented writers from all backgrounds across the globe. We do, however, have a strict policy against political writing and we will reject any pitches looking to politicize the site to lean on either side of the spectrum. We’re an entertainment site, not a political platform.
The following are the areas we are looking to recruit:
Books – If you love reading books and want to share your passion, now’s the chance to do it! We accept book reviews, ending explained articles, listicles and long-form articles about authors and genres.

Movies – If you choose to cover film, we accept movie reviews, ending explained articles, listicles and long-form articles too. Ideally, we’d love to get people on board to cover older movies, with plenty of lists and ending explained articles with thoughtful and interesting analysis.
TV Shows – If you choose to cover TV shows, we accept ending explained articles, retrospective looks at old shows, listicles, long-form articles and “explainers” for anime and popular TV series.
Games – If you’re a gamer, we accept a variety of different types of articles, including game reviews, ending explained articles, in-depth essays, game walkthroughs and listicles.
—What Do I Get In Return?—
Money, of course! We offer paid freelance positions and work on a pay-per-post basis. Do get in touch to find out our exact rates.
TheReviewGeek is a fast moving, agile site that receives anywhere from 3 million to 6 million page views a month. We’re also independently run too, which allows us to be more flexible and hear pitches from our writers. We also vow never to replace our writers with AI.
If you cover video-games, you also get the added benefit of being featured on OpenCritic as a reviewer for us; the Rotten Tomatoes equivalent for video games. It’s a great way to get your name recognized by some of the top names in the industry.
We also receive a whole host of records, indie films, upcoming streaming releases and other content ahead of release, meaning you’ll be among the first to experience these before the general public.
Once you’ve been with us for a while, we’ll also help you gain access to content early, reaching out to various PR agencies to secure early copies of content. We’ll also help you secure press access to attend film festivals, gaming conventions and more!
