Join The Team

The GuildMag team is always open to new individuals who want to become permanent contributors to one of the longest-serving Guild Wars 2 fansites. We’re looking for passionate, dedicated individuals who want to be part of a fun, relaxed fansite on a strictly volunteer basis. Although we pride ourselves on our relaxed and friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome to share their suggestions and comments, we do work to fixed deadlines with our magazines and many of our blog posts. Therefore, we require a mature level of dedication to your role and expect all team members to give their best. That said, we recognise that this is a fan project and not a demanding employment opportunity, and we’re all here to do one thing: have fun.

Still fancy being part of the team? See below for more details on each position available, and when ready, copy the application information at the bottom of this page and email us at apply@guildmag.com with your application, ensuring that all information that is required is included.

Position: Designer

Status: OPEN

Description: Designers are responsible for the look and feel of the magazine and creating graphics for the website. Primarily they design and create the pages in each magazine issue, though graphics work for images around the website is also common. Each designer works in collaboration with the writers in deciding upon the final design of each article to create designs that are both visually pleasing and relevant to the article.

Requirements: To be successful in this role, you must fit all of the criteria below.

  • A strong knowledge of your choice of image editing software, and a general eye for good design.
  • Strong communicative skills and an ability to compromise with the needs of a writer.
  • An ability to work to deadlines.
  • Dedication to be an active member of the team that contributes to team discussions on a regular basis.
  • A willingness to make yourself easy to contact, whether that be through regularly checking your GuildMag forum personal messages or any other method of communication.
  • You have examples of your work detailing both your image editing abilities and HTML/CSS skills.

Position: Writer

Status: OPEN

Description: Writers for GuildMag have two responsibilities: writing for our next issue of the magazine and writing articles for our website. Writers are not limited to what kind of articles they may write, though all are expected to write primarily for the website and for the magazine secondarily. All writers have a broad spectrum of types of article to choose from, whether it be an editorial, magazine article or piece of fan fiction. Our writers have vast freedom in what they want to write about, and there are often frequent discussions amongst writers on our forum where ideas are bounced back and forth. Naturally, though, content must be Guild Wars (2)-related.

Requirements: 

  • Your written English equates to the native level.
  • A good sense for grammar and a strong personal writing style that’s both entertaining and easy to read.
  • A strong knowledge of Guild Wars and/or Guild Wars 2, with a willingness to learn more.
  • An ability to work to deadlines.
  • Dedication to be an active member of the team that contributes to team discussions on a regular basis.
  • A willingness to make yourself easy to contact, whether that be through regularly checking your GuildMag forum personal messages or any other method of communication.
  • You have an example of a piece of writing you have created yourself.

Position: Editor

Status: OPEN

Description: Editors are responsible for proofreading all articles that are published both to our website and magazine. All articles are checked on their grammar and structure, whilst keeping all suggested changes in keeping with the writer’s personal style. All editors are also welcome to contribute their own article ideas and are expected to provide feedback to other writers prior to the proofreading stage.

Requirements: 

  • Your written English equates to the native level.
  • An excellent eye for grammar and an ability to combine this with the personal  style of a writer.
  • An ability to work to deadlines.
  • Dedication to be an active member of the team that contributes to team discussions on a regular basis.
  • A willingness to make yourself easy to contact, whether that be through regularly checking your GuildMag forum personal messages or any other method of communication.
  • You have an example of a piece of writing you have created or contributed to yourself.
