Rising Apple is Looking To Add a Pair of New Writers

By Aaron Somers

Consider yourself a big fan of the New York Mets? Think that you could handle writing about the team and that you have what it takes to be a part of the Rising Apple staff? Now just might be your chance to prove what you can do.

Rising Apple is searching for a few new writers (we’re looking to add 2-3) and this could be your opportunity to write about the team that you love with a growing audience of fans to reach. We don’t require any formal writing/blogging experience for our Staff Writer position (though it certainly doesn’t hurt) – just a solid understanding of the game, the team, and writing in general is all that is needed.

Having a strong passion for the game of baseball also helps.

We do ask our Staff Writers to contribute a minimum of 6-8 posts a month (roughly 1-2 per week) with a focus on quality, not quantity. Ideal candidates will also possess the willingness to help promote the site and your work through social media. This role is currently an unpaid one, though there are other non-monetary benefits to joining the team and the FanSided Network.

Topics will generally include anything and everything Mets related, but we are specifically looking for at least one writer with a strong knowledge of the team’s minor league system.

Interested? Have some questions? Head over and complete FanSided’s application and someone will be in touch from there.
