Here at The Landry Hat, we are currently looking to expand our writing staff in an effort to improve our coverage and bring you the best Dallas Cowboys news and opinions on the web.
Part of the mission of the FanSided Network is to encourage our community of readers to share their passion, unique views and thoughts on their favorite teams. Our writers don’t hold back and we don’t expect our readers to either. 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.
As a result, we are expanding our staff here at The Landry Hat to give you more content and a broader perspective. We are currently accepting applications for open staff writer positions.
Staff writers are only required to publish one article per week. These positions are strictly volunteer and are unpaid. But some of our former writers have moved into paid staff positions as vacancies and opportunities arose. Being a writer for a FanSided site also offers excellent exposure, opportunities to talk to and meet players/coaches, and a chance to sharpen not only your writing skills, but your perspective of your favorite team. There is tremendous opportunity for growth within FanSided to those who seek it. FanSided is currently partners with Sports Illustrated, Rant Sports and The Bleacher Report. And your articles will be featured on their website as well!
How To Apply: If you are interested in joining our veteran writing staff, simply send a personal e-mail to me explaining why you’d like to write for us, a small bio and a quick 200-300 word writing sample about the current state of the Cowboys. Resumes are not needed as we’ll make our decision mostly based on your writing skills. My e-mail address is: [email protected]
Important: These positions require not only a talent for writing but also a certain level of computer savvy and constant internet access. Although potential candidates will receive technical training, they should already possess a medium to high level of writing ability and computer knowledge. They also must be open to criticism, adapt to new guidelines quickly and be willing to learn. Candidates should also have an e-mail address which they check on a daily basis. Finally, you must be 16 years of age or older to apply.
I look forward to hearing from and working with some of the most passionate and motivated fans in the world!
