Fantasy baseball writers wanted!Posted by Derek Carty at 2:55pm
I'd first like to announce that THT Fantasy Focus has just added a new writer to the team! His name is Paul Singman, and he has previously written for MLB Front Office, Behind the Plate Fantasy, and Major League Report. He's a great writer and should add a lot to the discussion here. Welcome aboard, Paul!
We are committed to bringing you even more high quality fantasy baseball content going forward, which is the primary reason for this post. Simply put, THT Fantasy Focus is looking for new writers!
I know that we have a lot of intelligent readers here, so if you've ever thought it would be cool to have your thoughts published or ever wanted to join the fantasy baseball writer's community, this is your chance! In addition to being part of the THT Fantasy Focus team, we also have a deal worked out with FOX Sports where you would have your content run over there.
Paul will mostly be doing player analysis, and right now we're primarily looking for someone on the other side of things. If you have an interest in or have a knowledge of strategy, game theory, economics, psychology, business dealings/bargaining theory or any other area that could be applied to fantasy baseball, we'd love to hear from you.
If you're not as well versed in these types of things and are looking to do player analysis, please feel free to send us an e-mail and you will be considered as well.
- Your name
- The types of articles you would like to write
- A sample article, if at all possible
Feel free to include anything else that you think would help us make a decision or allow us get to know you better! This could include why you feel qualified, your fantasy baseball credentials, past fantasy experience, past writing experience, experience in the field you'd like to write about (maybe you're a psychologist, for instance) or really anything you see fit.
If you have any questions, as always, feel free to send me an e-mail.
