Decent hours, no pay, holidays off

North of Center is looking for interested sports writers and photographers to provide regular coverage and reports on the town’s diverse sports scenes. We are actively interested in writers to cover bike polo and disc golf. Other sports coverage options include Lexington Bocce League, Latino baseball at  Coolavin, Croquet on Clay, Creacy kickball games, Castlewood ping pong matches, alley cat races, soapbox derbies, or any other sports event you can convince us needs coverage.

Past coverage can be found archived on our web page’s sports section.

We are interested in any ideas potential writers may have and are always on the lookout for celebrating the public sporting use of our public parks and lands. We are not seeking coverage of UK sports.

Knowledge of the sport you wish to cover is helpful though not necessary if motivated to learn. Ideally, writers will start by covering just one sport. Pick your beat. Preference will be given to writers who express a definite vision for how they plan to cover the sport.

The paper has a rich tradition of solid local sports coverage written from a variety of voices.  Apply to contribute to that tradition.
