Do you all pay anything? Volunteer position?

Not that it really matters, just need to know if the position can be done if you already have a full time job.

Also, do the two writing samples have to be sports/gaming related or can they be pieces that were in a previous business portfolio?

Thanks guys, sounds like a great opportunity for someone.

Right now it is volunteer with the usual perks of getting free games and sometimes a free trip to go see games early and such. And you get to get the enjoyment of people ripping on ya for your opinion, it's a fun gig

But yeah, definitely not a full time position and can be done by anyone who is proficient in writing but definitely passionate about sports games (we can work on the former but not the latter).

Do the writing samples have to be videogame related, or do you want something that demonstrates one's writing aptitude?

Preferably both

But if you have some samples that aren't video game related we will take those as well...no biggie.

Re: Operation Sports Seeking New Writers

I think I'll submit, but I'm not a "model citizen". If all of my posts have to be representations of intelligent thoughts... oops.
