Are you a passionate hockey fan that loves to write? Are you an aspiring writer? Are you looking for a place to share your thoughts and opinions about your favorite team with the rest of the world? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then we are looking for you!
Bolts By The Bay is looking for passionate hockey fans to add to their family of writers. If you love the Tampa Bay Lightning and want to share your thoughts and opinions with others, then look no further!
If you are already an experienced writer and are looking for more exposure for your work, the FanSided Network can give you just that. We have a partnership with Sports Illustrated that will allow your work to be featured on their site. Between our social media presence and the exposure on SI.com, your work has the potential of reaching a vast and wide-ranging audience.
If you’re just getting started in writing, this could be the perfect place to get your foot in the door and get some solid experience writing about something you love.
We are currently looking for people to fill three different positions; Staff Writer, Syracuse Crunch Correspondent, and a Florida Everblades Correspondent.
The requirements of a Staff Writer are really quite simple. You are required to post a minimum of article one a week that is at least 200 words in length about the Tampa Bay Lightning or of hockey-related subject matter. Of course, you are encouraged to write as much as you desire, but those are the minimum requirements. Simple enough, right?
The Florida Everblades Correspondent is just like the Syracuse Crunch Correspondent. You share the same requirements as a Staff Writer, but you will predominately cover the Tampa Bay Lightning’s ECHL affiliate, the Florida Everblades.
While these are not compensated positions, the possibilities that an opportunity like this could provide for you are endless.
If you are interested in joining our hockey family, you will need to complete our brief Writer’s Application here. Be prepared to provide a topic relevant example of your best work. Once we receive your application, a member of our leadership team will review your application and be in contact with you.
If you have any questions regarding the requirements, our FanSided family, or the Writer’s Application, you can e-mail me directly at [email protected]
You will not be disappointed. We look forward to working with you.
