Blitz’d is an online publication that pays homage to the traditional ‘lads mag’. We’re a relatively new entity, with the sole purpose of helping young guys (and girls) navigate the world as they move into adulthood.
We’re now looking to form a long-term relationship with a writer(s) who has knowledge and experience in the areas of sex, sexual health and relationships.
Blitz’d is not an ‘adult’ site, but it does contain content of an adult nature, so you will need to be comfortable with this, and with putting your name to the articles you write.
You will need to be a native English speaker, and have a thorough knowledge of the areas listed above, with experience of writing for lifestyle magazines.
As a talented writer, you’ll quickly become a valuable asset to our team and can expect to receive assignments that will vary in length, from 1,500 to 3,000+ words. We’ll cover diverse topics across a variety of formations, from short response posts to detailed research-based articles.
As part of each assignment, you’ll be expected to make recommendations for imagery, for us to fine tune in-house.
Our working relationship will be built on two-way dialogue and trust.
Blitz’d Magazine is owned by Fabrik Brands and managed by a team of highly experienced digital marketers, who understand SEO. We use proven techniques to drive traffic to our web pages, and we work closely with writers to generate highly visible content.
