Who Are We?
Here at From The Stands, we pride ourselves on high-quality content, whether that be opinion pieces or post-match interviews. Our site is the best place for upcoming writers and designers to gain experience as well as give them a platform to show off their work to the adoring football fans following our social media accounts. From The Stands are always on the lookout for new passionate and dedicated writers, designers and video producers who wish to contribute to making our website the number one place for all football fans.
Content We’re Looking For:
The content we’re looking for involves news & opinion pieces from the Premier League and only the Premier League. We always want our following to stay updated on the latest news from the greatest league in the world, as well as indulging in debates from opinion pieces posted on our website. All articles must be error free before publishing or it could lead to your removal. Some of the things we’re looking for include:
- Reliable News Stories
- Match Previews
- Match Reports
- Football Opinions
- Tactical Analysis
- Video Content (Post-Match Interviews etc.)
How Regular Would I Need To Write?
To improve our content quantity, we’re only taking on writers who can commit to providing articles on a daily, weekly, or fortnightly basis. If you fancy the role of a news reporter, which would feature 150-300 words per article, we would expect multiple reports every week. However, if writing opinion and feature pieces are more of your style, around 500 words or above on a weekly basis would meet our expectations.
Why Should I Join From The Stands?
Unfortunately, we are not in a position to pay writers for their content, although we plan on this in the future. Writers for us can have their work seen by hundreds of thousands of fellow football fans, in addition, they can build a portfolio of articles hosted on our website and use it to apply for future writing roles. Experience is everything, and by gaining it with us it can help you take a step forward in the world of football journalism. Writers who have been featured on our site have gone on to write for Arsenal, The Independent, The Manchester Evening News, OneFootball and much more, showcasing their ability on our site, and there’s no reason to stop you doing the same.
How To Write?
Our website is based on WordPress and if you wish to write for us, you should have some knowledge on how to use WordPress, or attempt some research before applying.
Ah, Finally. How Do I Apply?
