1. Minor league recaps. These posts are based on a daily template created and maintained by Talking Chop and feature recaps of the previous night’s games played by the Braves minor league affiliates. Notwithstanding the prescribed structure, there is a good deal of editorial freedom within these posts.
2. News desk. We’re looking for people who can be available throughout the day to write reasonably short (150+ words) news pieces on items related to the Braves. These might be big or small breaking news stories, roster moves, signings, or anything else Braves-specific. These post are news-y by design, but if you’re good enough at commentary and/or analysis we may let you work in some of that as well.
Along with the duties of the news desk would be pushing out link posts early in the day encompassing all Braves news from the previous day.
You will be required to: 1.Follow a style guide and prescribed style and grammar rules which we will provide. 2.Work on a deadline.
These positions are unpaid at the moment, but if you’re interested in pursuing a career in Internet or sports media, I can assure you that time spent on the editorial staff of SB Nation/Vox Media can look great on a resume. If you’re merely interested in gaining some experience or giving back to the Talking Chop community, this is a good opportunity to accomplish both of those things as well.
And ladies, please don’t be shy. I realize it might seem like a boys’ club up here, but I’d very much like to add another female voice or two to the staff so by all means fill out an application.
You can fill apply here or via the form embedded below. Cover letters and resumes are not required but are strongly encouraged. Good luck!
