Cloth5 – Producing Quality eSports Coverage
Cloth5 is a League of Legends Blogs, News, and eSports site striving to bring you high-quality content in the most readable way. With the 2014 LCS Season off to a rapid start, we are looking for more writers to join our team and expand our standard of excellence. Are you passionate about League of Legends? This is your chance to begin your eSports career – And what better way to begin then by making your voice heard among one of the largest gaming communities in the world? If you think you have what it takes, read on!
Writers will be responsible for producing features, previews, recaps, and other written content to contribute to Cloth5’s eSports coverage. Realize that this is a commitment to producing consistent content in sync with tournaments and events as they are unfolding in real time. We expect writers to maintain a sense of professionalism in their work: This means timeliness, respect to deadlines, and respectful communication. It takes a team to create great content, just like it takes a team to win a game on Summoner’s Rift.
Cloth5 is currently in need of writers to cover GPL, LPL, and OGN events (as back-up to our current OGN coverage). We are looking for writers who have comprehensive knowledge of the game, possess strong written English skills, and maturity to meet deadlines.
- GPL Writer: Previews/Recaps and/or Features/Analysis
- LPL Writer: Previews/Recaps and/or Features/Analysis
- OGN Writer: Previews and/or Analysis

Do we Pay?

To apply, send an email to [email protected]. Make the title of the email: “Cloth5 (One of the Writing Positions Above) Writer.”
Please include the following:
- Skype Information: For team coordination, we use Skype for Instant Messaging and Team Chats.
- BRIEF and RELEVANT Background Information: Name, Age, Country, eSports history – Please do not send resumes.
- One Writing Sample (~700 words – No more than 1,000 words): Please provide a writing sample that discusses the current meta in whichever scene you are applying to cover: GPL, LPL, or OGN – We are looking for writers who can tell good narratives, bringing together events like a “story,” not just listing off details of matches.

Be yourself and show us your best!
