Athletics Nation has been through some rough times recently, but in the short time that I have been here, I have marveled at the resiliency of this community. I talked a little bit in the comments of this article about my vision for the site and one of the first orders of business is to add to our roster of writers and editors. So, I am again turning to our vast community.
I am looking to engage at least three writers on a freelance basis. Maybe more, depending on what kind of response I get. I am looking for people that are interested in writing about specific games as well as breaking news. We may also have opportunities to commission freelance writers for feature stories as well as for minor league coverage. Game coverage though is our No. 1 priority at this time. We’re looking for freelancers who can submit 2-3 articles per week in accordance with agreed-upon terms of their agreement.
Ideal contributors would:
- Have a passion for the Athletics.
- Be able to produce and edit clean copy.
- Previous sportswriting experience is preferred.*
*I want to add that while prior writing experience is preferred, it is not a requirement. Additionally, we encourage writers of all backgrounds and identities to inquire.
If interested, please email a resume detailing any previous writing experience, a cover letter explaining how you could contribute on a freelance basis to the community, and a sports related writing sample to athleticsnationsbn [at] gmail [dot] com. Please include “New Writer Inquiry” in the subject line.
