Let’s face fact, Kansas has a huge love of sports. Whether it be the Kansas City Royals, the Chiefs, the Kansas Jayhawks, the Kansas State Wildcats, or one of the many other professional and collegiate sports franchises in Kansas, there is undoubtedly a very devoted following. Likewise, FanSided also has an insatiable craving for all things sports and we take covering the Kansas sports scene seriously. Naturally, we want to find a way to marry the two sides into the perfect union.
As such, FanSided is looking to fill paid editor and co-editor roles, as well as unpaid staff writer positions for a number of our Kansas team sites. In particular, we’re looking for committed fans to join our teams at the following sites:
- Through the Phog (Kansas Jayhawks – Editor)
- Jug of Snyder (Kansas State Wildcats – Editor)
- Reporting KC (Sporting KC – Editor
FanSided continues to grow and reach a broader audience daily, through our increasingly popular FanSided.com homepage and the 250+ team sites that each calls FanSided home. Our content partnership with Sports Illustrated gets our work featured at SI.com, helping to ensure that what you write won’t go unnoticed.
We’re looking for individuals who are passionate about the game and want to share their voice with countless readers. Topics are wide open and generally up to our writers, so long as they are team-related in some regard. Opinionated columns are key, provided you know what you’re talking about and can back up your opinions with relevant knowledge.
Prior experience writing in an online platform is always beneficial, but certainly not required. With a growing collection of writers within the network there is a great group to learn from, network with, and help you out along the way – making this a great place to get started if you’re an aspiring journalist, budding writer, or just simply someone looking to expand upon a hobby. A number of our former writers have gone on to full-time careers at local newspapers or national publications, with a few even landing positions working closely with the teams themselves. We’re firm believers in creating opportunities for our own here at FanSided, as every member of our network’s leadership has been promoted from within.
Think you might have some interest in joining the team or do you know someone who would? Head on over and complete our online application. You’ll be asked to share some insight into why you’d like to join us and for a sample of your writing. We’ll be in touch from there and will be happy to answer whatever questions you might have as we further discuss some of the expectations that we ask from our writers.
If you should have any questions about the roles, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com, and I will be glad to answer any questions.
