Pittsburgh Penguins Writers Needed
Launched in March 2014, Along the Boards is a rapidly-growing website that aims to cover all levels of hockey throughout North America with a focus on the NHL. Its three founding members have spent a combined decade-plus as credentialed media members, covering the NHL, Boston Bruins, AHL and college hockey throughout New England for publications such as New England Hockey Journal, Fox Sports and The Hockey Writers.
WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR
The ideal candidate will be an aspiring writer that's looking to hone their craft, has a strong knowledge of the Pittsburgh Penguins and can contribute on a regular basis. We want to continue to build our staff with writers that think outside the box, that can channel their individual voices and find creative ways to write team-specific articles -- whether via humor, opinion pieces, statistical insight or beyond.
WHAT WE OFFER
In addition to providing you with a platform to voice your opinions and cultivate a growing audience, our editors will utilize their wealth of experience to help you become a better writer and prepare you for the world of sports journalism. Our long-term goals include establishing as many of our writers as possible as credentialed media members in their respective cities, as well as implementing a pageview-based compensation system for all members of our staff at some point during the 2014-15 season.
