Fenice Community Media an Austin-based media company operating several newspapers, magazines and websites in Texas. We’re looking to bolster our staff of freelance (contract) sports writers to cover high school sports from football to golf and everything in between.
We’re looking for writers who can provide a concise and accurate report promptly after the conclusion of a game and then follow with a more in-depth report and analysis. We also need writers who can cover UIL competition districts in notebook-style weekly recaps, and also those who are willing to take on more in-depth team and player features.
This is an opportunity for ongoing work throughout the year, predominantly in the north and northwest Austin area suburban school districts.
Social media aptitude is required. Interest in doing live feeds and short video is a plus. Pay is per game or per feature story.
Please provide information on your experience, availability, and several samples of relevant writing.
