Hypergrid Business and its sister site, Hyperica, are always looking for contributors. We have both paid and unpaid opportunities for writers, depending on the kind of story and their experience level.

Reviews: We are looking for reviews of grids, events, stores, hosting vendors, and immersive platforms. For Hyperica, reviews must focus on destinations accessible via hypergrid teleport. For Hypergrid Business, reviews must have a business or technology component. So, for example, if you write a review of a new grid for Hypergrid Business, you should focus on their marketing strategy or their platform. For a review for Hyperica, focus on events, shopping, and other destinations of interest to the hypergrid traveler. No previous writing experience is necessary.

News and features: We are looking for short news stories and in-depth features about new business and technology developments related to the hypergrid, OpenSim, and other immersive platforms of interest to business and education users. News and features should be based on on-the-record interviews with the key people involved. Our typical rate is US $0.05 per word, but can vary based on experience.

Advice and opinion: We are looking for columns in the range of 500 to 800 words based on personal experience and analysis, of interest to virtual world users in the business, education, and non-profit sectors. No previous writing experience is necessarily, but subject matter expertise is required. We are happy to run reprints.
