25YL will be expanding to add a second website in the Spring of 2020, which will be focusing entirely on sports. Some of the sports we’ll be looking to write about on the new site include:
- Fantasy Sports
- MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)
- Professional Wrestling
What will sports coverage and journalism look like on 25YL? For starters, we’re passionate fans ourselves and those are the types of readers we want to attract. We want to publish content that goes beyond the clickbaity headlines some sites publish. We want to find interesting topics and really explore them, the kind of things you hope to find when you’re searching for articles to read. We always try to think about what people want to read and give that to them.
Having writing experience is certainly great but the biggest thing we’re looking for is knowledge about the sport or sports you want to write about and passion. Everything we publish is reviewed by an on-staff editor prior to publication. We use self-hosted WordPress and if you aren’t familiar, training will be given. We also use Slack as our “virtual office”, where we plan and discuss all ideas and plans. Again, training will be provided for those that need it.
So if you’re passionate about any of the sports listed above and feel like you have something to say on them, what are you waiting for? Life is all about seizing opportunities and here’s a golden one right in front of you. It’s time to show the world what you’ve got.
Please fill out the application at this link and we’ll be in touch shortly.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
