In this article we will try to grasp of what being a freelance poker writer is all about. As a poker writer you will travel the world reporting poker tournaments such as the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and the World Poker Tour (WPT). At least, that is what the best writers will do but let’s talk about those kind of poker writers for the sake of this article. You also have the kind of writer that just work from home delivering content, but we will discuss those in other articles.
The freelance poker journalists that travel the world usually have a lifestyle to envy. Visiting great cities and hanging around with people that like to spend money and have lots of it can’t be a real punishment for most of you. You will always be close to the action and see the most exciting hands from first row.
When a long tournament day is over poker players usually don’t go to sleep early. In general, they like to eat well and party hard. As a ‘poor poker writer’ (in their eyes at least ) chances are they take you with them, thus getting you great dinners and parties free of charge. These are the main perks we heard from different writers and in most industries you will never come across these kind of situations.
Being a freelance poker writer, this all will not be an unlikely scenario. Do you have the writing skills and poker knowledge? Get into poker writing and you might discover it yourself!
