I am looking to add some weekend assistance to the MLBTR team. Specifically, I have two slots open for MLBTR coverage: Saturdays from 1pm-5pm and Saturdays from 5pm-9pm. Times are in CST. I’m open to the idea of one person taking both slots. The gig pays on a per post basis (a post is typically 3-4 short paragraphs).
Here’s what I’m looking for:
- Strong writing skills and a casual style similar to the one found on the site now.
- Strong knowledge of all 30 teams and no discernible bias.
- Technical ability to post and edit on a blog; experience helps.
- Ability to monitor breaking news for all 30 teams and post quickly but without errors.
- Ability to write interesting short feature type posts for the site during your time slot if the hot stove is cold.
- Regular availability each week during at least one of the above time slots. You’ll have to be on your computer nonstop for the entire four-hour period.
- If you applied before, feel free to apply again. I know I had to pass on many good writers at that time.
- Send all inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org, and thanks for the consideration.
