Last year, we created the @closernews Twitter feed, a must-follow for fantasy junkies who are looking for an edge in the saves and holds categories. Presently, it has 8,800 followers and is still growing. Then, in July, we officially launched CloserNews.com, a place where we could expound on all the information found in the Twitter feed.
After only a few few weeks, the early returns on CloserNews.com are promising, and now we're looking for a few motivated, strong writers to contribute to the site as we build it into a must-read for fantasy fans.
Ideal candidates will:
- have some college education
- be familiar with Twitter and RSS feeds
- be baseball and fantasy experts
- be strong writers whose copy requires minimal or no editing
This position is unpaid with the potential to become paid as the site grows. So, it's probably best for someone who is breaking into sportswriting — either as recent or soon-to-be grad, or someone changing careers.
If interested, please submit a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. The piece should be roughly 300 words and written in a style similar to the posts published at CloserNews.com. It can be a reaction to news or an original analysis piece. As well, tell us briefly about yourself and why you'd be a good fit.
