About the Job
Do you want to write fantastic fiction of the highest quality for Games Workshop products to tight deadlines?

Are you excited by describing the unique worlds of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 through gripping stories with evocative battle scenes that are full of character, whilst adhering strictly to Games Workshop’s intellectual property?

You will be able to provide written fiction that will be used in Games Workshop products. This will be on a freelance basis, to agreed deadlines. You will need basic knowledge of Games Workshop’s intellectual property and a desire to learn more.

Other Essential Information
Closing date: We are always looking for new people who can do this job. Because of this, there is no closing date for this advert.

How to Apply
If you wish to apply you must send us an email telling us what you want to write about the worlds Games Workshop has created and why (no more than 250 words please). This is a great opportunity for you to let us know that you understand what we are looking for.

We don’t need to know how long you have been in the hobby (if you are enthusiastic about writing fiction we’ll take that as a given) or your writing credentials (complete novices or Pulitzer prize winners are equally welcome). We want to know which part of the IP you are going to explore and why.

We will then ask you to complete two tests for us and, if successful, you will join our freelance author pool. All our correspondence will be via email. Because of the potential volume of responses, we cannot guarantee to respond to every application. However, we will endeavour to respond to successful applicants within 30 days of your application.

Please send your application letter to freelanceauthorsubmiss[email protected].

Have had a tab open for this for a while. Just need to work up a good sell of myself and my passion for the background side of the hobby/fanfic writing chops.

I missed out on the Black Library bit from earlier this year, I'm not missing out on this.
I just need to work on an app and get it submitted.
@Zion thanks for posting this. :-)

I missed the BL one myself, and was shot down by FW a couple years ago (lack of experience writing professionally is what did it). I submitted an ap for this though. Fingers crossed?

That's been a statement I've seen popping up a lot lately. Everyone suffering from the blues or something lately?
