I’m looking forward to spring training.
A lot of other writers have started a trend of bemoaning the celebration of pitchers and catchers reporting, but not me. I love it. It’s the symbolic start of baseball season when everyone’s tied for first, everyone’s in the best shape of their life, and everything is new and fresh.
That being said, there’s a lot to cover and while Gage, Kevin, Austin and myself catch a lot of it, there’s always more out there, especially once the games start. I’m looking for more writers to help us catch everything.
If you’re interested in becoming a contributor on Kings of Kauffman (proud member of the Fansided network), here’s what to do:
- Write a 500-1500 word article about the Royals. This can be about any topic you choose but it should represent your best work and be fully edited. Writing is one part ideas and one part presentation, and both carry a lot of weight.
- I cannot stress this enough – your work should be fully proofread and edited. Nobody’s perfect, myself included – but you should take the time to read, re-read and perhaps have a picky friend read your submission before sending it.
- Email your article (in pdf format or at least cut and pasted into the body of an email) to myself at [email protected] Please put “Kings of Kauffman Contributor Article” in the subject line. I’ll review the sample articles before passing the best on to the Fansided MLB Leadership Council.
- This should be obvious, but there shouldn’t be any profanity. A “hell”, a “damn” – no problem. If they can say it on the radio, you can say it here. Strong opinions are necessary, but please be classy with them.
As a contributor on Kings of Kauffman, you’d be expected to post one (1) article a week, but would have the option open to post more if you chose to do so. Focus on prospects, stats, news updates – whatever you like.
