Come Write About The Mountain West With Mountain West Wire!
Cover your favorite Mountain West team
We could use your guys’ help.
Our website is still sort of new, about a year, but we have been covering the Mountain West for about a decade with a variety of writers throughout that time.
Since we started this new venture last July, we here at Mountain West Wire have striven to provide the absolute best coverage of Mountain West athletics you’ll find anywhere. Thankfully, our readers have made it all worthwhile, by letting us know what they want by following us on Twitter and Facebook and coming along for the ride.
Now, with this new-ish platform, we’re looking to get even better and we need you to do it.
Mountain West Wire is currently in need of more writers to provide coverage of certain teams, so if you’re interested in joining our ranks, please send a cover letter stating your particular interest and prior writing experience, as well as a writing sample of 300 to 500 words, to firstname.lastname@example.org and JeremyMauss@gmail.com.
This position does have some money involved and it is based on page views and think of it more of a few extra bucks for lunch, drinks or get some extra V-Bucks for Fortnite.
There have been quite a few writers go on to bigger and better things with newspapers, radio stations, and other publications. So, if you want to use this to brush up on your writing skills to go noticed we can provide that. If you want to have some fun to scratch an itch for your fandom this is an outlet for that as well.
Our work has been featured on ESPN, CBS Sports, Yahoo, Bleacher Report, USA TODAY and other major publications.
Here are the positions we want to fill:
The gridiron is our bread and butter, so come write about the season that never ends.
Air Force, Boise State, Nevada, New Mexico and Hawaii.
Hoops season is year-round, so help us cover the unpredictable race to the top.
Air Force, Boise State, New Mexico and Nevada.
There are a lot of pros from the Mountain West.
If you want to give updates on MLB, minor league baseball, NFL, NBA or other pros from the league that would be a different angle we like to cover.
Also, covering the various pro drafts throughout the year could be a niche to crack.
Want to cover Olympic sports within the Mountain West? Now’s your chance.
Our Don Starks has the bird’s eye view of Mountain West baseball, but if you’re interested in covering the diamond, too, or women’s basketball, soccer, track and field or any of the conference’s varsity other sports, let us know!
School/topic not listed? Even if your school or sport was not listed above, we’d still like to hear from you. We listed our most important needs, but if you are a UNLV, San Diego State or another fan, want to cover recruiting, film breakdown, draft coverage, pro athletes or anything Mountain West-related let us know.
