Ah, the glamorous world of fantasy sports. It’s mostly studious note taking and witty banter by day and partying with Rob Gronkowski and Kate Upton at night. Except for that last part. What we have here is the American Idol for fantasy writers. If you’ve got a coherent thought in your head and think that you could do this with your eyes shut, now’s the time to put your keystrokes where your mouth is.
We at LeagueSafe Post are looking for five to seven aspiring fantasy baseball writers to pen a weekly article that will be featured on our site. The position will require one weekly article from mid-March until September. We’re looking for excellent grammar, insightful stats, humor and an obvious knowledge and love of fantasy baseball.
Here’s the skinny on the position.
Our writing positions are by default unpaid. “Unpaid?” you say. That’s right, but there’s a few catches. First, you get exposure to the fantasy sports industry. Most of the people within the industry start in some sort of unpaid form.
Second, unpaid isn’t entirely true. The best article out of our group of weekly writers will receive a “bonus” of the monetary kind. “How much?” you ask. Enough to make it worth it, but we’ll let you know that once you express your interest.
We will ask you to write one article every week. There aren’t bye weeks or paid vacations. The content will vary from week-to-week. Some of the articles will have a short turnaround time, some a little longer, but we’ll let you know far in advance what you’ll need to do.
This position, while an unpaid gig, can be dissolved at any time if we feel the content doesn’t measure up to our standards.
We will have two tryout assignments for all applicants that need to be completed by February 28. We will notify those who have been offered a position in early March.
Those who are interested should contact us at email@example.com for a detailed explanation of the position and their first assignments.
