What our members say about KeenGamer
Did KeenGamer help me get more writing positions? 100% absolutely. By writing for KeenGamer consistently, I showed employers that there was a company willing to pay me for my writing. I’m a full-time content writer for Lionbridge AI (large translation and AI data company) in Tokyo. I also have contract positions writing for ZenMarket (Japan Shipping service) and Cangler (Data Analytics Company).

I definitely think it helped me get a lot more experience with writing and learning WordPress. It’s a great first step towards the bigger game industry world and helped me land my job at Screenrant. Before that I just worked retail jobs and dreamed of getting something where I can write about games. The benefits for reviewers are great and the chance to gaming events is really cool!

Since I was little I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I self-published my first book back in 2015, and I have four books out at the moment (currently working on my fifth one :smile:). KeenGamer has given me a lot of confidence in my writing. The support that I get from everyone here and the feedback has been incredibly helpful in building up my confidence, and that has helped me grow as a writer.
Jessica Boswell, Senior Author at KeenGamer
I write, host and edit a comedy youtube show about video games. Having a deeper, more varied, and up-to-date knowledge of the gaming industry is a key attribute for someone putting themselves in a public space open to criticism. Working with KeenGamer helps me be aware of movements in the gaming industry that I may otherwise not see, and I’ll occasionally cite KeenGamer as a source in a video.

Writing for Keengamer and getting feedback from both readers and other writers helped me to better understand how to approach games and related topics objectively, along with how best to structure and approach content creation, not just in the written medium, but also in terms of video and audio. Writing for Keen also helped me to get a better grasp on the importance of SEO and how to cater content to a specific audience.

Getting the position at KeenGamer gave me such a boost of confidence, and as I look back over the last ten months since starting, my work here has improved me as a person. We have such a talented team of writers, all of whom have been fountains of advice. To be able to share my work with hundreds of thousands of people around the world and make some money out of it is a fantastic opportunity for budding writers. I’ve now published over 100 articles and been read by over 100,000 people. My current goals are to continue creating engaging, informative and entertaining content. I love what I do, and the only way from here is up.

…writing for the site had helped hone my craft in my day job a bit as well and helped me get an interview for other games based jobs…
Ben Williams, Editor at KeenGamer
KeenGamer allowed me to combine 2 of my greatest passions, gaming and writing. This let me hone my skills and grow from a mumbler of random syllables to someone who sounds like he actually knows something. Writing has always just been a side hustle for me but to my greatest delight, a new employer took notice of my work which led to a major bump in my career. I now write full time for a great company and I have endless possibilities ahead of me, all because of a plucky gaming site that published my random thoughts.
