Become a Contributor
For the past eight years, Fanbase Press (formerly Fanboy Comics) has provided thoughtful reviews and coverage of various properties within the geek genre.

As a Contributor for Fanbase Press, you would have access to lots of exciting material in advance of its release, as well as additional opportunities for creator interviews, convention access, and various other benefits!
Please note that this is an unpaid position at this time.
Who Should Apply?
If you are a new or experienced writer who is interested in writing reviews for Fanbase Press, we want to hear from you! You do not need to have previous writing experience in order to apply.
What Is Required?
Fanbase Press seeks strong writers with a grasp for thoughtfully analyzing and examining content for its vision, production value, storytelling, artistic execution, performance, and other aspects of the creative process.
Fanbase Press holds a high regard for creators and the amount of work required when producing a new project. For that reason, we expect that all reviews will reflect honest and considerate coverage of the material while providing constructive feedback when necessitated.
In addition, Fanbase Press maintains strict deadlines for its contributors in submitting their material, so that the creators, publishers, and other individuals submitting the material for review may anticipate the exact date that the review will be published. Contributors will be expected to meet these deadlines and/or maintain a dialogue with Fanbase Press’ Editor-in-Chief, if they foresee being unable to meet the deadline.
How to Apply
Please submit two sample reviews that showcase your writing style within the geek genre to Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon [barbra (at) fanbasepress (dot) com]. Please submit your sample reviews as Word document attachments. The reviews may be of any material of your choosing, and no one style of writing is correct.
