Land-Grant Holy Land is looking to add a handful of new contributors to our one-of-a-kind (for better or for worse) Ohio State athletics coverage.
The ideal candidates would have a distinct voice and perspective, and the more out of the box, the better. Buckeye fans are fortunate to have a veritable smorgasbord of websites and newspapers covering their favorite teams, but that means that a lot of talented people are already writing the standard/traditional types of sports stories.
So, here at LGHL, we want to find folks who look at OSU sports differently than the traditional beat writers. We want folks who think about sports in different ways, who can infuse their Buckeye coverage with humor and unusual context, and are willing to intelligently discuss what is going on both on and off the various fields and courts that OSU plays on.
Everyone at Land-Grant Holy Land is a diehard Ohio State fan, that’s basically a job requirement, but we pride ourselves on being able to write and talk about Buckeye sports objectively.
If this sounds like you, check out the information below and apply to join our team. Requirements
Applicants should have exceptional writing skills and and experience writing news stories, columns, op-eds, blogs, or working in other short-form styles. They should also be able to regularly generate unique article ideas that can’t be found anywhere else in the OSU Blogosphere.
Contributors must be able to commit to working on a set schedule and turn in articles on deadline. They should also be willing and able to work on site-wide projects and initiatives.
Even for contributors who focus on a specific sport(s), these positions are year-round and article requirements apply both in season and out. However, the LGHL editors are flexible and willing to work around specific circumstances. Job Specifics
LGHL contracts are based on a specific number of articles per week. These articles will be regularly scheduled and should be submitted for editing in advance. The specific number of pieces per week can be negotiated, based on interest and availability.
All positions are freelance, independent contractors and are paid. Total compensation will be based on the contributor’s experience, submitted materials, and the weekly article commitment.
