Are you a passionate baseball fan? Do you believe that baseball is a year-round love affair that never ends? Are you ready to step up to the plate and go to bat for your favorite team?
The FanSided MLB division is entering its stretch run and looking for aspiring writers to help keep the fire kindled throughout the last month of the regular season, the postseason, and keep it burning when the Hot Stove starts cooking.
Our goal at FanSided has always been to provide enough quality content to make ourselves a consistent daily resource for news and information for all of your favorite sports team. In order to do so it requires building a strong team of dedicated writers and there are opportunities here at District on Deck to join our team to help us do so.
FanSided continues to grow daily, reaching a broad audience across our 300+ sites that cover the entire sporting landscape and various aspects of the entertainment world. Between the vast internal network of writers and readers and a great content partnership with Sports Illustrated there are certain opportunities to have your work read by countless readers just as passionate as you.
Prior experience writing in an online platform is always beneficial, but certainly not required. We have a growing network of writers and editors across the network to learn from, network with, and help out along the way – making this a great place for an aspiring journalist, budding writer, or simply someone looking to expand on a hobby. We are offering roles throughout the MLB Division in both paid and unpaid capacities.
A number of our former writers have gone on to full time roles at local newspapers or national publications, with a few even landing positions working directly with the teams themselves. Others even work full time for us directly. We’re firm believers in creating opportunities for our own here, as every member of the network’s leadership has worked their way up from within.
Interested? Want to know more? Head on over and complete our online application. It will give us a chance to better know you and see an example of your writing. We’ll ask for some insight into why you want to join us. We’ll be in touch from there to answer all of your questions.
