If you’re interested in helping out, please read this whole page, then pop over to our official chat room and let us know what you’re interested in writing. You’ll also need to register for an account on the site. Once we know you’re not a bot/spammer, your account gets switched to contributor status so you can draft your post.
The Science Fiction & Fantasy Community Blog is a community-run effort, aimed at producing quality information of interest to the SFF community.
All the content here is produced by members of the community and we are always excited to welcome new writers – there’s no hefty commitments to worry about, we won’t mind if you just write one good post and leave it at that, although obviously we’d be grateful if you have an entire series hanging around waiting to be written.
We’re looking for a wide variety of topics and games to be written about, so if you’ve got something interesting you’d like to write about then please let us know. Some suggested topics include:
- Reviews of books, TV series, comics, films, story reviews of games, whether newly released, or a classic more people should know about
- Reviews of events – local conventions, exhibitions, or anything else sci-fi/fantasy related in your area
- Important news or developments within the sci-fi/fantasy world, especially with interesting and insightful commentary attached
- Editorials on sci-fi/fantasy works or the industry
- Anything else to do with science fiction & fantasy that’ll be interesting!

After that point, the new team took over and moved the blog to the new domain and contribution licensing is a little different. For posts published on or after October 6th, 2016 authors retain full rights to their works, but give us revocable permission to post and host them, share and link to them on other websites (including websites such as reddit, StackExchange, Twitter, etc.), fix formatting and copy errors, etc. Basically, you give us permission to use your work to do everything we need to do to actually show it to people, and that’s it.
