The Viking Age is putting out the call for new writers. Love the Vikings? Love to write, especially about the Vikings? Here’s your chance to get your stuff read on a well-trafficked site supported by all the resources of the ever-growing Fansided network. This means links to major sites (TVA has been featured on SI.com’s Hot Clicks, Deadspin, The Big Lead, PFT, Shutdown Corner and others). Have your own blog that you’d like to promote? Write for TVA and link back to your site. Get yourself some clicks.
Have Vikings-related fantasy football takes you’d like to share? Awesome. I’m looking specifically for fantasy football wonks who’d like to add their insight.
Are you a long-time Viking fan, I mean someone who goes way back to the ’70s or even earlier, who has great Viking stories they’d like to share? Fantastic. I’d love people to post personal experiences related to the Vikings. Stories about great tailgating experiences. Drunken exploits. First-hand accounts of great moments in Viking history. Or just posts about the history of the Vikings. Best players in Vikings history. Best games. Stuff to get us through this grueling offseason.
Do you like coming up with top ten lists? Everyone loves top ten lists. Write me some top ten lists.
Basically, I’m looking for anything and everything. Want to write a weekly column with your own header and byline? Cool. Want to do scouting reports on future draft prospects? Terrific.
Here’s how this works: You apply by filling this out. If I like you I get back to you and add you as a contributor. If you show the willingness and ability to post good content on a semi-regular basis, you get bumped up to staff status. If all you want to do is contribute the occasional post, maybe once a month or even less, that’s great too. You can stay on as a contributor. All positions are unpaid.
In short, my door is open. Step on in and tell me what you’ve got. Help me take TVA to the next level. Add the new voices that will take the site into the future. Put your Viking takes out there for the world to see. Represent.
