Want to Write For YouNerded.com?

Let's review nerd culture.

We’re looking to assemble… or unite, depending on which team you’re a fan of.

Hello! (That’s how they greet people in Star Wars.) YouNerded is looking to expand its staff with more voices. As it says in our banner, we are “Reviewing Nerd Culture.” So, if you have a passion for the vast reach of nerd culture—particularly regarding TV, movies, video games and comics—then you’ve gracefully stumbled onto the right site, my friend.

Unfortunately, this is not a paid position. Instead, this will provide you with the experience of working with a team that shares similar passions. If you are looking for experience or simply need a place to get published, then have a look below at what positions are available to you—pretty much everything.

*YouNerded is all about equality and diversity. Anyone of any background is encouraged to apply.
