I'm looking for one or two Dodger/baseball fans who are passionate about the team and writing about the team. While I write a lot about prospects, you are free to write about whatever you want (within reason, of course). I am looking for someone who could write game recaps (gamers), ready for publishing immediately after the game ends. I'd like to have every game covered, but I also understand life happens and it may not be possible to do so. Mainly, I'm looking for more content on the site, and I know there are Dodger fans out there who want to express themselves.
- Background in writing
- Ability to use Blogger CMS
- Ability to write breaking news articles
- Ability to write detailed, thought-provoking articles
- Ability to analyze Dodger baseball
- Ability to research desired topics
- Ability to express opinion(s) with research to support
- Ability to adhere to style guide
- Ability to communicate clearly and quickly
- Ability to use social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
- Ability to use Creative Commons to enhance articles (i.e. Flickr, Wikimedia Commons for photos)
Desired skills (but not required)
- Degree/training in journalism, English or related field
- Knowledge of AP Style
- Knowledge of Dodger farm system
- Knowledge of sabermetrics
- Audio and video editing
- Ability to attend games (MLB or minor league)
All submissions will be subject to editing by myself, but I won't change your voice or what you're trying to stay (mostly for grammar/style/etc.).
Available positions are unpaid (unfortunately). If the website traffic were to increase, perhaps there could be some revenue sharing down the road. This blog gets anywhere from 17,000-40,000 pageviews per month.
If you are interested, please send a resume and at least two (2) writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me via email or on Twitter (@FeelinKindaBlue).
Deadline to apply is Jan. 10. Thank you for your interest.
