Keeping It Heel, one of the most successful sites on the FanSided Sports Network, is looking to add some staff writers.
Why should you write for us? Staff writers have a terrific opportunity to reach a large audience while building and developing their journalism skills under a professional team of editors. We reach audience of over ten thousand people per day and over one-hundred thousand readers each week! We are proud to be one of FanSided’s most popular websites ranking in the top-3 and to be the no. 1 ranking NCAA site on the network! What better way to get your name out there as a sports writer than with Keeping It Heel, one of the most trusted and reliable sources for UNC news, editorials, opinions, and more!
Part of the mission of the FanSided Network is to encourage our community of readers to share their opinions and thoughts on their favorite teams. We strive to provide coverage from the fan’s perspective, a viewpoint that is often missing from traditional sports media. We believe sports coverage should provide much more than the facts and scores, it should give readers thoughtful and in-depth analysis, reasoned insights, entertaining anecdotes, and unique opinions.
The FanSided Network is the fastest growing and one of the largest independent sports blogging networks on the Internet. FanSided has 240+ sites, 600+ writers, 8,000 articles a month and over 4 million unique monthly visitors.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of writing for our site is having your work featured on a large platform. Articles you write could be featured on Sport Illustrated’s Fan Nation as part of FanSided’s partnership with Sports Illustrated. On top of that, you will be joining a community of fellow sports writers who are just as passionate about sports as you are. You will be able to work with professional editors to help improve your writing skills and prepare you for a career in journalism.
At Keeping It Heel, we strive to deliver fresh updates and analysis on all things North Carolina. However, with so many different sports to cover and keep track of, we are looking for some help and in need of more writers.
Sports we currently cover, but are not limited to are: Basketball, Football, Baseball, Soccer, Recruiting, and more!
