CoBL Staff (@hooplove215)
Another hoops season is quickly approaching. Basketballs have already started bouncing this week with workouts and open gyms under way. Fall events will soon get going, preseason stories will soon start rolling out, and CoBL is looking for some help to assist our one-of-a-kind year-round coverage.
We are looking for writers with varying degrees of experience to join our talented staff of contributors. We have positions available for the following:
We are also excited to announce that this year we are offering a pair of paid collegiate editor positions for qualified college students. These two local students will receive a $4,000 stipend to cover Big 5 basketball for City of Basketball Love. These students will preferably be juniors or seniors with experience in sportswriting who will chronicle Big 5 basketball via game stories, one-on-one interviews, features, and more. They will also have the opportunity to cover conference tournaments and, hopefully, the NCAA Tournament as well.
If interested in becoming a CoBL contributor in any capacity please reach out to site founder and editor-in-chief, Josh Verlin by email at email@example.com. Please include a resumé and writing examples and a note about why you are interested. No prior sports journalism experience required!
