Icy Veins is looking for a Hearthstone writer

With the release of WoD coming up, we have had a lot of work to do on Patch 6.0.2 and we will soon have to start writing guides for raids and garrisons. In the meantime, Poyo is busy with the Diablo 3 content. And after that, we want to start working on Heroes of the Storm.
