Article Submissions

You could be a published author in Casual Game Insider, the one and only magazine about casual board games!

We are always looking for volunteer authors to provide interesting content about casual games for our magazine and blog. Whether you're a published author, prominent industry figure, or just passionate about casual games, we are interested in what you have to say.

How do I make a submission?

If you are interested in submitting an article for Casual Game Insider, send us a query with a title and brief description of your proposed article. Please also let us know what experience you have with writing and why we should select you as an author. For each issue, we will select several of the best queries for publication and request the full articles from the authors, with about a 1-month lead time.

How can I be reminded about future writing opportunities?

Sign up for our email newsletter and select the check box stating that you are interested in writing about casual games. We will notify you each time a new opportunity arises.

How much do authors get paid?

At this time, we are only accepting submissions from volunteer authors.

What is the target length for articles?

The target article length is usually between 1,000 and 2,000 words, but we can accommodate shorter or longer articles, if need be. When articles are selected for publication, the authors are notified and given a specific article length to work toward. If you have a specific article length in mind, please include it with your query submission.

How can I become a blog contributor?

If you are interested in contributing to our blog on a regular basis as a volunteer author, please contact us. We want authors who are as passionate about casual games as we are. Please let us know what experience you have with gaming, what you have written in the past, how often you would like to write, and what types of things you would like to write about. If what you have to offer is a good fit for our site, we'd love to have you on board!

What publication rights do I grant to Casual Game Revolution for my content?

Magazine articles

Unless otherwise agreed upon, we ask for first English-language rights for print and electronic publication (including PDF, mobile, and web versions). The base copyright and all other rights are retained by the author.

An article accepted for publication in Casual Game Insider will appear in the initial print run and all subsequent reprints, print-on-demand purchases, and electronic purchases of the same issue indefinitely. We occasionally follow up by publishing an article on our blog. After 1 year from the date of publication of the magazine, the author may request that the article be removed from the blog, otherwise it will remain indefinitely.

While the magazine is current (3 months from the initial publication date) the article may not appear in other English language, print or electronic, publications. After this time, it may be published elsewhere with a statement similar to "First published in Casual Game Insider, Issue #1, Fall 2012", with a link to this website, where applicable.
