With the college basketball season in full swing, we here at BTP are starting to expand our coverage going forward. The site has been growing like crazy and is moving in an exciting direction, but we still have more growing to do and as such, we are looking for qualified writers that can help produce content.
We are currently looking to add several writers to the staff. Anyone is open to apply for the site regardless of age, experience, or background, but obviously, an individual with writing experience and a background in the Big Ten would be preferred. Specifically, we are looking for someone that can contribute twice a week over the course of the college basketball season.
The position is an entry level writing position with the site, which, unfortunately, means that we cannot offer any pay. Still, despite that, there are some positives. As mentioned, BTP has been trending upward over the last year and this is a very exciting time to join the site. We've had articles receive well over 100,000 page views and have had numerous writers move on to other sites. My point here is that you have the potential to get your name out there, reach a lot of people, and write about something that a lot of people enjoy.
The requirements for our entry level writing positions are 2 written posts per week. Primarily, entry level writing positions will focus on recruiting coverage, game previews, and game recaps. However, we promote from within our own staff and are more than willing to allow writers discretion to choose some of their own topics.
I can't promise fame or fortune for joining the site, but I can promise the ability to reach a national audience and the ability to write about a topic that is a passion for many. Basically, we can offer you the potential to get your name out there. We've had writers go on to write for Prep Hoops, the nation SBNation site, 247Sports, Today's U, and various team based SBNation sites.
If you are interested in applying. There is just one easy step. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We do ask for a writing sample (preferably Big Ten related), but anyone is encouraged to simply email to get more information.
And finally, we look forward to hearing from you all!
