The Sixer Sense Wants You!

Have you ever felt like you had what it takes to make it big in the sports journalism market? Or as though the guys behind the keyboard had no clue what they were talking about? Well, today is your lucky today. The Sixer Sense wants to give you the opportunity to prove it to yourself.

We are looking for talented writers that share the same passion as we do: the Philadelphia 76ers!

The Sixer Sense is a part of the FanSided NBA Division. If you are in it for purely the exposure, this is the place to be. FanSided is a part of Sports Illustrated’s digital network. As you can see at the bottom of the page, there is a link to SI.

We’ve seen writers start out as staff writers and editors and become writers for ESPN, Sports Illustrated, and official team sites. I started as a staff writer myself. While being a staff writer isn’t a paid position, it’s still a chance for bigger things. FanSided NBA writers have gone on to write for NBA.com, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, and individual team websites.

So, what is expected of you?

On the lowest of terms, you would need to submit 4 articles per month, but that’s not the limit. Any type of team analysis post you that want to put up, go ahead and put it up. The more posts, the better.

Experience is not required. Take my staff for instance. I have writers who have their own sites they manage while writing here. I have writers who have never written in the sports world before. It’s a great mixture of writing styles and experiences that can help everybody grow as a writer. When filling out an application, they’ll ask for a writing sample. Take your time with it. This leads me to my next point…

Have a passion for writing. Enjoy yourself. You’re free to write what you want. As long as you’re enjoying yourself, you’ll make great content that not only helps you in your career, but it helps the site and network’s reputation as a place where writers thrive. We want unique things here.

What are you waiting for? Fill out that application and begin your writing career at The Sixer Sense!

If you have any questions, concerns, thoughts, or feed back feel free to contact the editor.
