Wanna write about the MWC?

NCAA Football: Hawaii Bowl-Hawaii at Middle Tennessee Marco Garcia-USA TODAY Sports

Here at MWCConnection, we are committed to bringing the best Mountain West coverage we possibly can. Life happens though, and writers come and writers go. We are in need of help covering some of your favorite teams and other areas of the conference for basketball season and beyond. Thus, we are looking for more writers to join our team.

Where do we need help?

Primarily there is a need for people who are interested in covering football and basketball for one of the teams in the conference. Currently the openings we have covering teams are:

  • Air Force
  • Nevada
  • San Jose State
  • UNLV

However, conference coverage can go beyond writing about the teams. If you have an idea for a need or idea that we either don’t currently cover, or could cover in greater detail, feel free to contact us about that as well. That could include things like:

  • The MWC in general
  • Game breakdowns and analysis
  • NFL draft prospects
  • Statistics
  • Recruiting,
  • General basketball, baseball, or other conference sports.

Want to cover a team or contribute, but we already have a writer? Contact us anyway and maybe we can find a role for you.

Who should apply?

Anyone! Preferably those with some previous writing experience. As long as you can prove yourself as a solid wordsmith and are passionate about a team or the Mountain West in general, you’d be a good fit for our site.

As far as requirements, those covering a team would be asked to produce 2 posts per week (game previews and recaps), although anyone can certainly write more than that.

How to apply?

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please send an email to both fasterthanyou112@gmail.com and michael.v.wittmann@gmail.com explaining a bit about yourself, what interest or ideas you think you could bring to the table, as well as a writing sample (preferably sports writing).

We are looking to get new writers up and running over the next few weeks as there will be quite a bit of projects going on come winter with post-football season, basketball season, recruiting, NFL draft prospects, and coaching rumors.
