Want to write about the MWC?

On a sad note, we’ve had to retire our old Nick Rolovich “we want you” looking from these posts. This one of Troy Calhoun will work well enough though. Okay one more Rolovich picture just because.

Anyway...

Here at MWCConnection, we are committed to bringing the best Mountain West coverage we possibly can. Every year, life happens, and writers come and writers go. We are in need of help covering some of your favorite teams and other areas of the conference and thus 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:

  • Colorado State
  • San Jose State
  • Utah State

However, conference coverage can go beyond writing about the teams. If you have an idea for a potential 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:

  • General MWC topics and news
  • Film analysis and breakdown from games
  • Recruiting
  • General/big picture basketball
  • MWC Olympic 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) during the season, although anyone can certainly write more than that.

We’ve also functioned as an internship with college journalism students looking to get some work on their resumes before graduating.

How to apply?

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please send an email 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 the spring and summer is a good time to have a newbie get their feet wet before things ramp up at the end of the month.
