Hello again to all you Nexus readers and Modern players!

In our announcement last week, I talked about some changes to the site and our short and long-term goals moving ahead. A big part of this is continuing to provide you quality Modern content, which means bringing on writers to ensure regular articles and diverse viewpoints. That's why we've released our Join the Team page. You can also get there from the top menu link. This new page goes over all the steps you can go through to start writing for Modern Nexus. This is a great opportunity for both more experienced Magic writers and players who want to make a meaningful contribution to the Modern community, and also to players who want to start off their Magic-related writing journey.



In this first phase of adding writers to the site, here are some important points for all candidates to consider.

  • Our primary goal is to add writers with tournament experience. You won't be instantly disqualified if you don't have it, but the rest of your application should be very strong. If you do have Trade Routes arttournament experience, definitely showcase that in your application.
  • If you get through the first round of the application process you will be placed on a 4-6 week review period. Only after that review period will you be a staff writer for the site.
  • As mentioned earlier, writing for the Nexus is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to either break into or return to the Magic content scene. If you've ever wanted to contribute to the broader community and make a lasting mark on Modern, this is the place to do it.

Although the Join the Team page will eventually be updated to include other openings and opportunities, for now we are really focused on adding writers to keep the articles flowing. You can read more information, especially about the application process itself, by clicking on the link. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at and I'll be sure to get back to you.

I'm looking forward to hearing from all the awesome writers out there and adding some more Modern enthusiasts to our team.

Get excited for GP Charlotte!

  1. What about those of us who may be interested in contributing the occasional “topical” article but don’t wish to commit to any sort of “regular” writing schedule?

    1. We’ll eventually add a section for “Content Contributor” which will cover exactly what you are talking about. But at this stage of growth, it’s much more important for us to focus resources on people who do want to commit to a regular schedule. Infrequent contributors are certainly important in the long-run, but right now we need to focus on the regulars.
