The internship: We are seeking students who want to build their resume and potentially obtain college credit by writing for a nationally recognized website. On top of students who want to publish their work, we are searching for passionate and knowledgeable sports minds who desire to write about the one team they truly love. We have full and partial openings for a host of major pro and college teams. The Sports Writer position comes with the opportunity to have the student’s writing reach a national audience as isportsweb.com feeds into FOX Sports, FOX Sports apps, MSN, Yardbarker, Yardbarker apps, Google News, Google Newsstand, Apple News and SmartNews.
As a Sports Writer, interns at isportsweb.com will be assigned to cover a sports beat for a team they have interest in. As that team’s correspondent, interns are expected to generate multiple stories per week about that team. These stories can and should be opinionated, and we give our writers freedom to pick topics they find relevant to their particular team.
While our interns are unpaid to start, we do help all writers gain media credentials to games. This is not guaranteed, but we have been able to gain media access in the NFL, NCAA basketball and NCAA football.
Why isportsweb.com? This opportunity is unlike any other currently available to students on a widespread level. The selected writer(s) will have the opportunity to expose their writing across the country through our various feeds, gain a following, interact with their readers, learn how to write for a publication, post their articles, and be held accountable for their work; all while learning the trade from our editing team that has covered professional and collegiate sports for years.
