We are looking for talented writers to cover all football leagues and teams for Sportslens as well as our partner sites in the SportsHabit network.
If you are interested in writing about:
MLS, Mexican and South American football
Championship & lower league English football
Other European leagues
The business of footballl
or any other team or topic in football, we’d like to hear from you.
We are listed on NewsNow, on Google News and on OneFootball, as well our own social media channels – with over 5,000,000 article views per month. Your articles will be syndicated to a very large audience.
If you are interested in writing for us, write a 400-500 word news or opinion piece on any recent story from the last 3 days and send in your article to via email (writers AT sportslens DOT com). When you are sending in your article, also mention the team / league you would most like to write about, and how often you can contribute.
Note #1: Read the Sportslens Writers’ Guide – especially the section on ‘Writing for Sportslens’. The rest isn’t compulsory reading but it will help you become a better writer and will increase your chances of success at Sportslens.
Note #2: The Sportslens’ writing team follows our SEPP code (unrelated to Herr Blatter):
Self-Directed. Given initial instructions, can you complete a task on your own? Are you capable of taking the initiative to identify opportunities and take advantage of them, as well as solving problems when they appear? Are you a self-starter?
Exceptional. What you write / create for Sportslens – is it the best it can be? Is it uniquely better than anything out there? Our goal is to provide high-quality writing and resources to our readers, never to compromise on quality for profitability and to always ensure that we put in our best efforts when working on Sportslens.
Passionate / Professional. Yes, we’re football fans and we’re passionate about the game, but we’re also accountable to hundreds of thousands of football fans who read the site for the latest football news.
That requires us to a) put personal preferences/biases aside and b) develop more balanced, rational opinions instead of giving in to our primal/tribal tendencies of defending our team against the rest of the world (or kicking Arsenal when they’re down, which is easier done than said – see what I did there? That’s not on).
