As the Seahawks gear up for a new season, so shall we at 12th Man Rising. To do that, we’re hoping to add some additional staff to help us add to the depth of our coverage of all things Seahawks.
Part of the mission of the FanSided Network is to encourage the sharing of opinions and thoughts by fans about their favorite teams. We want to give you the best coverage and opinions on your favorite team from the fan perspective that is so often missing from traditional sports media. We believe sports coverage doesn’t have to be dry, boring and without opinion.
12th Man Rising is dedicated to bringing to the best Seahawks coverage on the web. In order to step up our game, we are expanding our staff here at 12th Man Rising to give you more content and a broader perspective, and thus are accepting applications for contributing writers.
Contributing writers are expected to submit at least one article per week on a deadline. These deadlines are individually set for each staff writer, and with that staff writer’s schedule in mind.
These positions are not paid, although many of our contributing writers move into paid staff positions as vacancies and opportunities arise. Being a contributing writer for a FanSided blog also offers excellent exposure and a chance to sharpen not only your writing skills but your view of your favorite team. There is tremendous opportunity for growth within FanSided to those who seek it.
I have no maximum number of writers in mind at this time. What we are looking for is knowledgeable and passionate Seahawks fans who are capable of producing writing of a certain quality. If that is you, then I very much hope to hear from you.
Those interested in becoming a contributor for 12th Man Rising, please submit a writing sample about anything concerning the Seahawks that is at least 250 words.
Please send all submissions to: [email protected]
If you’re one of those people who love the content here at 12thMR, but hate dealing with all of my typos and grammar mistakes, then this is the position for you. We are looking to add 1-2 copy editors to help this site become as professional and polished as possible.
Copy editors will be responsible for editing all new content submitted for publication on scheduled days. The site’s copy editors will also have the option to write for the site as well, though that will not be a requirement.
Like all positions on the staff of 12th Man Rising, this isn’t a paying job. Those of us that contribute do so as a hobby and because we love the Seahawks.
Since being able to edit well is predicated on first being able to write, we’d like you to submit a writing sample over 250 words about anything relating to the Seahawks. After that, Hanley will contact you and have you edit something, most likely one of my typo-filled articles.
Please send all submissions to: [email protected] and be sure to indicate that you’re interested in becoming a copy editor.
Thanks and Go Seahawks!
