is looking for freelance writers and contributors

facebooktwitterreddit is looking to add to its stable of sports writers, as well as to grow its coverage of the entertainment world. There are two different position types available. Both positions are paid.


Contributors (formerly known as News Desk Writers) do a mixture of news coverage and mini-feature pieces. Folks chosen for this position will work directly with the editor on duty to choose and complete assignments covering breaking news around the sports and entertainment worlds. Contributors can drop on to at any time and choose one of the current available assignments provided by the editors. Contributors can also pitch their own ideas.

While writers are free to write on their own volition, this is a site that has a higher content output than average.

We are looking for contributors in all areas, but we are particularly interested in writers interested in covering Daily Fantasy sports (NFL, College, Golf, Racing, MMA), MMA, soccer and NASCAR. contributors should possess the following skills:

-Strong knowledge of NFL, College Football, NASCAR, NBA, NHL, MLB, Fantasy Sports and/or television/entertainment

-Enjoys writing quickly in order cover breaking news

-Can react quickly and apply opinions and context to breaking news

-Ability to “move the conversation forward” by providing “hot takes” on the sports and entertainment stories of the day (Example: “Geno Smith Injury: 5 reasons the Jets are better off with Fitzpatrick”

Contributors are paid via revenue share on the page views their posts bring in to during any given month. The rate for contributors is $1 per 1k pageviews.

This is an excellent opportunity for prospective writers or freelancers that are looking to make a little extra money and who want to get experience in the fast-paced world of online breaking news coverage.

Payment for features team writers is different than that of contributors. Since these articles often take a bit more work and preparation, features team writers are offered a flat rate for each piece the content team accepts.
