This site has a long history of developing professional talent while also giving hobbyists the opportunity to have their words read. With 2016 wrapping up, Jeremiah and I reviewed the needs heading into the offseason. We need light help with a lot of things, as well as someone who would like to claim the Tacoma Stars, S2 and Academy beats as their own.
We’ve collected a few interested readers via social media already, and will consider both sets of submissions equally. Depending on the volume and quality of writing we may have paid positions available. There will also be non-monetary compensation (scarves, t-shirts, hoodies, and/or beverages) as well as planning sessions and other meets ups.
Over the 8+ years of Sounder at Heart we have helped five people go fully pro while another handful have used SaH as a launching pad for regular freelance work. Countless others have made personal connections and become friends as we’ve endeavored to create a community people of all walks of live want to participate in.
Submissions will be open through Oct. 1.
Our managers will contact everyone by Oct. 8. Our offseason plan needs to be in place prior to the Playoffs, though we hope to be able to delay that for a few weeks.
