Chaos Hour was founded in March 2010 and has become a well known online community for gamers, comic book creators and enthusiasts and film buffs alike. A regular face at National and International Comic Book Conventions and LAN parties, including Insomnia, London MCM and Cardiff Film and Comic Con; Chaos Hour is looking to grow its community of volunteer writers and contributors.

However, Chaos Hour pride themselves on putting their contributors first. A personal profile page will be created for you on our site which reaches over 5000 people on a daily basis.

Tickets to events and free publicity material are also a common incentive among our writing team, as well as review copies of films, games and comic books at the editors’ discretion.
Over time, depending on the amount of contributions and unique articles created, there is room for advancement. This can include your own personalized column, youtube shows and podcasts and advertisements for your writing on our popular Twitch Channel (4000+ Followers, 415,000+ Page Views).
