Content Creator/Sports Writer with The Armchair All-Americans
We're looking for talented young writers to cover their Division-I college's athletics. We are also looking for writers to cover their local pro sports including the NFL, NHL, MLS, MLB, and NBA or general writing for each of the Power Five college conferences (Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 12, ACC, and SEC).
We also have sections of our site dedicated to esports, auto sports, tennis, MMA, golf, fantasy sports, and sports gambling and if any of your students are interested in covering one of those topics.
For those not interested in writing articles, we are also looking for people to run their school's, conference's or pro league's Armchair social media accounts. Applying for social media is at the same link below.
Across the site we have nearly 200 college-age writers, including myself, covering local teams and/or their colleges. Our writers are only required to write one article per week, though they are free to write as often as they want.
At the moment, our college pages cover their school's football, baseball and basketball teams. Writers choose their own topics for each article and choose a day of the week that they will have a new article due.
The time commitment is minimal for busier students as we require only however long it takes them to write one article with a minimum of 300 words per week. There are other opportunities as well, including social media responsibilities and promotions for writers willing to put in extra work.
Writing positions are not currently paid, though we as a company believe that all of our writers deserve some sort of compensation and plan to set a pay system up once we acquire funding.
