Chicken Friars – Writers Wanted


The 2011 season has been a little more difficult for the Padres faithful to endure than 2010. Since the playoffs are out of the question in San Diego, the focus will shift immediately from the regular season to the Hot Stove season. Now that Ernie’s focus has moved over to our Chargers site, Bolt Beat, we are in need of some talented writers to help us provide Padres coverage.

If you love the San Diego Padres and love to write, you just might be able to find a home here on Chicken Friars either as an Editor or as a Staff Writer.

Make no mistake, the position of Editor is a significant time commitment but it can be very rewarding if you love to write and love baseball. The role requires no fewer than 30 published articles per month and well as some behind the scenes work with in FanSided’s MLB team. For all the hard work put in, our Editors/Lead Writers are eligible to receive monthly revenue sharing payments (think pizza and beer money) as well as some other perks that come along from time to time.

If you are looking to take on a smaller role, then the position of Staff Writer might be for you. This position requires you to publish “only” 1 article per week (4/month) but you are welcome to write and publish more if you want. It’s a good way to get your foot in the door, see what FanSided is all about and make some friends/contacts along the way while writing about a team and a subject that you enjoy.

If you are interested in either role, please take a moment to fill out our newly revamped online writer application.
