Call to the Pen is looking for enthusiastic and talented writers to help cover the Hot Stove season. Ideal candidates would possess a vast knowledge of all 30 major league teams, the ability to make and support arguments, and a passion for the written word.
The FanSided Network is the fastest-growing independent sports network in the world and through our partnership with Sports Illustrated, we are only growing faster. If you’d like to reach a greater audience, what better way to reach them than by seeing your work on the pages of SI.com?
We have openings for staff writers and we would ask that each writer be available to write a minimum of two feature-length posts per week. If you are more interested in putting your own spin on news items, that can also be of use, though it would require the ability to post more frequently. Applicants are not required to give up any other writing gigs, but all work that appears on CttP would have to be exclusive to our pages.
Not much of a writer but still want to be a part of a great site and network? We are also looking for someone to operate our social media accounts and interact with fans and readers.
At FanSided, we pride ourselves on our family-like atmosphere and our dedication to making sure our staff has the tools to succeed. We also promote from within whenever possible, so if running your own site on our network is something that intrigues you, this can be a stepping stone to that end.
To be considered, please follow this link and fill out our application. When you do, one of our directors (probably me) will be in touch with you to discuss your candidacy and answer any questions you may have. This position is unpaid, but a great way to make a name for yourself and open some potential doors while writing for a great network with the backing of SI. For the ambitious writer, it’s an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.
