At FanSided our goal has always simply been to provide enough quality content to make ourselves a daily resource for news and information on all of your favorite sports teams. It requires a strong team of writers in order to make that goal possible and there are opportunities here at Call to the Pen to help us do so.

FanSided continues to grow daily, reaching a broader audience across our 280+ sites covering the sporting landscape and aspects of the entertainment world. Between the vast internal network of writers and readers and a 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.
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. 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.
We are actively looking to add multiple staff writers to the team. Such a position carries an expectation of at least two posts a week, largely on topics of your choosing, but we welcome those who want to contribute more than that. We are also searching for someone experienced in social media to help manage the site’s accounts and engage our readers.
