My name is Jenn Frank, and this is my Patreon.

Here are some things I've written:


One of my video game previews, titled "He's Still Alive," won the 2013 Games Journalism Prize.

My Work History

Since 2005 I have written professionally about video games. I came out of the gates strong, getting my start as a reviewer for Electronic Gaming Monthly. In 2006 I relocated to California to join Ziff Davis as its CM, where, until 2008, some of my writing appeared in the pages of EGM and Computer Gaming World, and on our website, 1UP.com. (During those years I was probably better known for my infrequent appearances on Retronauts, a podcast for old people.)

Since 2008, other reviews, games criticism, and creative nonfiction have appeared in the pages of Kill Screen Magazine and also online at Paste, Unwinnable, Vice Motherboard, GameSetWatch, Gameranx, 1UP, WIRED GameLife, The Guardian, and the New York Times. I have also maintained an inconsistent presence at my website, Infinite Lives.

I've also provided the voice for two video games, Super Hexagon and the upcoming VIDEOBALL. (Thanks to the honors Super Hexagon received, I am technically a BAFTA nominee.) I lent my voice, too, to an anthropomorphic inhaler in an educational cartoon for kids with asthma.

I graduated from Northwestern University in 2004 with academic honors and a degree in fiction writing (yes, that is a real thing); my concentration was Russian lit. For the next two years I worked as a Chicago-area actor and musician, and also in retail, at a "designer toy" gallery. Inspired by both GMR and the 1UP.com community itself, I began writing about video games, just for fun, during my final year of college.

This is a per-creation-subscription plan. That said, no matter how often I post, you will never be charged more than once a month, and if I don't have anything to post, you won't be paying anything either.

Wow. Firstly, this is ridiculously generous. Thank you.

Oh and I guess make a video.
