With another exciting season of Knicks basketball (....hopefully) getting started we would like to add to our staff. See details here.

We are looking for help with: game coverage; analysis and reaction to news; and community management. All positions qualify for a small monthly stipend.

Minimum qualifications

You are a huge fan of basketball and passionate follower of the New York Knicks and have experience writing about these topics. If you don’t yet have experience you can join your favorite team site and start writing FanPosts. It’s how many of our writers got their start.

You can take the thoughts inside your head and transcribe them into competent arrangements of English words that effectively communicate your idea, i.e., you need to be able to write complete sentences. And more!

You have strong opinions on your team that have not been yet been brought to the foreground.

You have strong opinions on issues that have already been brought to the foreground but need some additional perspective.

You take genuine pride in your writing, your discussions and how you gather facts and data to back them up.

Please send writing samples upon applying.

Preferred qualifications

You are an active member of one of our communities who submits FanPosts or FanShots or are very interested in figuring out how the site operates and communicates.

You are active on Twitter and/or Facebook, spending time looking for fresh news and analysis of your team.

You enjoy discussing your team on our website(s) and want to enrich the discussion in our comments.

Apply here and please be prepared to provide examples of your writing. If you haven’t written for a blog, I’d strongly encourage you to get experience through writing FanPosts right here on P&T (which are occasionally featured on the front page).

If you are selected, I’ll do what I can to help you work on your craft as a writer and provide whatever guidance I can in your career. Best of luck!
