TheSportsHaven.com is live and the interactive website is looking to build a strong team of contributors. The Sports Haven is an editorial based website where contributors give their informed opinion and insight into the latest and most controversial sports headlines. When a major headline materializes, we want sports fans to look to our site for compelling commentary.

Writers, or contributors, will be required to submit 1-2 stories per week. If desired, writers can contribute more than two stories per week. Sometimes contributors have an opinion on a specific topic that simply needs to be heard.

The ideal candidate is experienced, versatile, hard-working, creative, driven and willing to make a commitment. Candidates must be able to produce compelling, fact-based commentary, while producing content with insight and clarity. A solid understanding of news writing skills, journalistic ethics and story structure, plus a proven ability to utilize a broad set of skills to tell stories and engage the audience is a must. We're looking for first-rate writers that will stay informed on current and relevant sports topics, teams and athletes. You basically have to be a huge sports fan.

The Sports Haven is looking for writers who will be committed to these obligations. Applicants should have a passion for sports and sports writing. They should understand how to fact-check and must be able to submit a story on loose deadlines. Contributors must exhibit solid news judgement and high ethical standards.

The Sports Haven Is Primarily Looking For

NFL writers
NBA writers
MLB writers
College Football writers
and
College Basketball writers

MMA, Tennis, NHL, NASCAR, etc. writers are encouraged to apply as well.

This is a great opportunity for sports writers to join an exciting organization overflowing with potential. Because The Sports Haven is a new medium that has yet to generate significant revenue, we are unable compensate our contributors at this time. Ideally, The Sports Haven’s following will continue to grow and the site will be able to compensate its contributors in the near future. In the meantime, all content contributed to The Sports Haven will receive professional editing and be kept on the site in an archive section for each contributing writer.

A bachelor's degree is preferred with 1-2 years of prior writing experience. Relative experience in sports or a related field is a plus. A proven ability to write original content and a strong knowledge of sports are a must.

Interested applicants should send a resume and two sports related writing samples to contact@thesportshaven.com with the word ‘Contributor' in the subject line.

Please forward this note to qualified friends and professional contacts.
