Query Letter
With a reputation of 2 years in the field of gaming, your company has established itself as an
authoritative voice in the gaming industry. As a result, I would like to be a writer for Game
Informer magazine because I believe I possess the skills I need to develop a niche in gaming
information. As you will note in my article titled “Game streaming”, I have good research skills
that allow me to produce a thorough article on the topic of interest.
My writing style is easy and easy for a reader to follow through because it avoids all technical
words and phrases that are commonplace in technological publications. My aim in doing this is
to ensure that the reader is interested in what I am saying without getting his attention distracted
by the jargons or technical words.
I am also adept on presenting fact because I believe that only information backed by evidence is
worth sharing. Therefore, my article contains information that is rich and informative for the
audience and that will go a long way in driving the readership for this magazine. With my
writing skills and original content on various, but important topics in the world of gaming, I will
be able to drive the readership of your magazine.
I believe that your magazine not only gives me the opportunity to showcase my talent, or launch
my gaming writing debut but also gives the magazine an opportunity to add to its talent pool a
prolific writer who will keep readers interested with fresh gaming content.
That said, I hope to hear from you soon regarding this matter.
Best Regards.

Game Streaming as a Career
Over the years, game streaming has become common place with the growth of the
gaming industry. In fact some people have made it a career to earn through video streaming.
Video streaming has grown from a play to win scenario to concept with followers support across
the global populations. Twitch is one of the popular games streaming hub that hosts console and
PC streamers across the globe. A player can build a career out of game streaming provided the
player is a hard worker and a smart player. To get a better grasp of the game streaming industry I
spoke to players who have made a career out of video streaming. In determining whether Twitch
or any other game streaming service brings in sufficient revenues for the streamers, I turned to
three video streamers who apply variant approaches to earning an income from the streaming
business. The three are Twitch streamers namely Kristen Valnicek (KittyPlays), Ray Narvaez
(BrownMan), and Leah (leah).
Twitch is a game streaming service by Amazon. At Twitch users create accounts and play
