    I am the managing editor of the MMO channel on the technology web site Bright Hub. I am looking for a couple more writers who are interested in paid, freelance writing opportunities.

    On the MMO channel, we write previews, reviews, guides, analytical articles, industry articles, general MMO articles, etc.

    We have a good relationship with developers and publishers, and often get pre-release information to examine and write about. We are not beholden to any specific game advertisers, so you can write your real opinion and analysis. That is a rare thing in the gaming media.

    Most articles are 2-4 pages long, with about 400 words per page. The pay is $10 per article up front, and 80% of the advertising revenue share your article generates indefinitely. Once you build up a nice bunch of articles, the residual revenue share is a nice chunk of change for past work! The MMO channel has multiple deadlines per month, and we try to be flexible with writers. Freelance writing is a pretty easy way to make some nice money on your own schedule from your own home.

    If you are interested, please send me a PM here or an email to [email protected]
