When you get published in one of them your articles will automatically be curated.
Besides being a full-time software developer and online course instructor, my husband is also an indie developer.
He loves to create video games and play them.
I‘m a huge fan of ‘The Affair’ and binge-watched the popular HBO series.
I even hopped on a plane to New York City and visited Montauk on New Island where ‘The Affair’ takes place.
Do you are passionate and enthusiastic about gaming, Star Wars, Marvel, books, or films?
Are you a fan?
Then I’ll show you two publications you should definitely write a story for.
In one of them, you even get curated (=distributed/promoted across Medium) right away.
How cool is that!?👍👍
2 Publications for Fans and Gamers
If you want to write about games or things you’re a fan of, there are two specific publications on Medium I recommend.
I came across them recently when my husband asked me if Medium also offered a home for fans and gamers.
Let’s start with…
1 — SUPERJUMP
James Burns, owner of SUPERJUMP, created a colorful home for game lovers.
James calls his publication a ‘video game magazine’.
Its purpose is to honor the art and science behind the games we love.
Celebrating video games and their creators James Burns
Apparently, a lot of Medium writers love this. It’s all about passion and enthusiasm.
Topic: Video Games
You’ll find everyone from veteran game journalists and prominent game developers to students and even fans of single franchises.
How to become a writer?:
- Provide your Medium profile link on this Google form.
- James typically adds new writers once or twice per week.
You said something about curation?
Yes, I did. Here’s the pub.
2 — FANFARE
Eric Pierce is the proud owner of FANFARE.
FANFARE is one of Medium’s largest Pop Culture publications.
It’s all about entertaining and well-written content.
As a result of our partner status, Fanfare articles are automatically distributed across Medium, including curation in various Topics.
Topics: Film, TV, Culture, Star Wars, Marvel, Gaming, Books.
For instance, fellow Medium writer Rui Alves published this trending piece:

And I love this one by Jade M.:
