As the cornerstone of the FanSided Network’s Kansas City area sports coverage, our goal has always been to establish KC Kingdom among the top KC sports sites out there, making the site into a daily resource for Chiefs, Royals, Sporting, Jayhawks, Wildcats, and Tigers news and analysis.
With a goal to cover all of these teams as thoroughly as possible, it requires having a strong team of writers in place to help live up to that promise. Have a passion for the Chiefs, Royals, Jayhawks, Wildcats, or Tigers? Find yourself with opinions and want more opportunities to share them? Like to write?
There just might be an opportunity here at KC Kingdom for you to join our team. We are looking for passionate fans to join our staff as writers. We need writers for every team and school we cover.
While we are looking for writers for every single one of our teams and schools, we would love to add more writers with a passion to cover the Jayhawks and Wildcats.
We also are looking for a dedicated writer(s) to maybe help FanSided launch a site dedicated to covering Sporting Kansas City.
FanSided continues to grow and reach a broader audience daily, through our increasingly popular FanSided.com homepage and the 250+ team sites that each calls FanSided home. Our content partnership with Sports Illustrated gets our work featured at SI.com, helping to ensure that what you write won’t go unnoticed.
We’re looking for individuals who are passionate about the game and want to share their voice with countless readers. Topics are wide open and generally up to our writers, so long as they are team-related in some regard.
Opinionated columns are key, provided you know what you’re talking about and can back up your opinions with relevant knowledge.
Prior experience writing in an online platform is always beneficial, but certainly not required. With a growing collection of writers within the network there is a great group to learn from, network with, and help you out along the way – making this a great place to get started if you’re an aspiring journalist, budding writer, or just simply someone looking to expand upon a hobby.
A number of our former writers have gone on to full time careers at local newspapers or national publications, with a few even landing positions working closely with the team.
We’re firm believers in creating opportunities for our own here at FanSided, as every member of our network’s leadership has been promoted from within.
Think you might have some interest in joining the team or do you know someone who would? Head on over and complete our online application. You’ll be asked to share some insight into why you’d like to join us and for a sample of your writing.
We’ll be in touch from there and will be happy to answer whatever questions you might have as we further discuss some of the expectations that we ask from our writers. We would love to hear from you. Come join our KC Kingdom team!
