Positions vacant: A new year and a new focus at Scotzine


newscotzinelogo2With the new year fast approaching and Scotzine refocusing its efforts more towards features, opinion and fan blog pieces; we are on the look for new contributors.

Whether you have your own blog or not, we are on looking for new contributors to cover various aspects of our website’s new avenue of covering Scottish Football and beyond.

With Scotzine now choosing to ditch its match report coverage, we are focusing our efforts more towards fan blogs, opinion pieces and features.

Below is a list of what roles Scotzine are looking to fill for the new year:

  • Fan Bloggers [ALL SPFL clubs]: You do not need to have any experience of writing blogs before, but you certainly need to have an opinion on your club, its players, management or anything else related to the team you support.
    Anyone looking to apply for our fan blogger positions MUST be able to contribute at least one blog of 600 words each week. We are not looking for match report pieces, only opinion and reaction pieces.
  • Preview/Reviewers: We are looking for individuals who can preview and review leagues within the Scottish game. We already have someone covering the SPFL championship, league one and league two divisions; but we are in need of someone to cover the Premiership, the Lowland and Highland League as well as Junior Football.
    You must provide ALL preview pieces 24 hours before the games kick off and review pieces must be sent in no later than 48 hours after the games finish.
  • Columnists: We are looking for bloggers or freelance writers [who have experience and potentially their own sites]to provide us with regular opinion pieces on football as a whole. Our opinions section will not only cover the Scottish game, but also football in general. Columns on Scotzine will generally be between 900 – 1500 words and must be able to provide at least one article per month of a subject of your own choosing [but cleared with the team beforehand].
  • World Cup bloggers: With the World Cup in Brazil kicking off in the summer, we are in need of bloggers who can dedicated their work on Scotzine solely to world football’s premier cup competition. We are looking for bloggers and freelance writers to produce feature articles on the teams, players and even the competition itself in the coming months, before covering the competition itself in opinion, preview/review and reaction pieces.

Do not apply if you cannot send through sample work along with your enquiry and certainly don’t waste our time with just a one line email saying you want to write for us. Tell us why you want to write for us, what you want to cover or write about amd how often you can write articles for us.

All work is credited to the author of said article and if you have a blog or website yourself, then we will add a link back to your website as well out of courtesy.

If you are interested in any of the above positions please email us at editor@scotzine.com with your details, a short bio, why you want to write for us and some sample work or links to work elsewhere on the internet. NO applications will be accepted from individuals if there are no examples of work attached or linked too.
