What are we looking for?
We are looking for writers who can bring original, objective content to the site. Further, we are looking for people to write game recaps and news articles. These two may or may not be mutually exclusive, meaning if you are interested in just writing recaps and news articles, you can strictly write about that but you do not have to.
We ask for a commitment of, at least, one piece of content (opinion, news, recaps, podcast, etc.) a week.
Here are basic tenets to follow for being a writer at Red Sox Unfiltered:
- Quality over quantity. It is a common expression, yet it is infrequently followed. At Red Sox Unfiltered, producing quality content is absolutely the site’s main mission. Through our objective and creative articles, readers should be able to walk away with a new perspective.
- Objectivity. We ask that all our writers try to remain as objective as possible in their work. This does not, however, preclude you from writing opinion articles. In fact, we love the opinion piece. We just encourage, if you are to do one, to use as much hard evidence as possible.
- Passion. Writing can be difficult, redundant and stressful. Every writer knows that. They also know that writing about something you are passionate about makes the whole process a lot easier and more meaningful. Love the Boston Red Sox and your craft. It helps.
- Communication. We want all of our writers to feel comfortable sharing their ideas, thoughts, feelings, etc. to every member of the staff. It is why our team will be comprised of open-minded and affable individuals.
