Thank you to everyone who showed interest! We have received enough applications, and are closing the submission process. We will be in touch with those who make it to the next stage.
Do you want to write about the Lakers? Do you like Silver Screen and Roll? If the answer to both of those questions is “yes,” then wow do I have an opportunity for you.
We are looking to expand our staff with a variety of different types of paid contractor positions, from people to blog the news, write game previews and recaps, weekly columns, help moderate our comments section, or even make graphics, among other possible duties. Pay rates vary based on responsibilities and experience level.
Qualifications include, but may not be limited to:
- A genuine passion for basketball, particularly the Los Angeles Lakers. This is easily the most important.
- Previous writing/blogging/social media/graphic design experience, whatever is relevant to the position being applied for.
- An ability to come up with original editorial ideas to help both drive and react to the ongoing conversation around the team. This can range from X’s and O’s, deep-dive statistical breakdowns to more column/blog-style takes on what it all actually means. Or perhaps a blend of all of the above and more.
- An ability to accept feedback and make prompt adjustments to a story prior to publishing, and to submit work prior to deadlines.
So if you’re looking to join our crew, then fill out this form and apply! And be prepared to show examples of your prior work.
If you don’t have prior writing experience but are looking to showcase what you can do publicly before sending it along, I recommend our FanPosts section, where you can publish your thoughts publicly on this very website.
And of course, if you do join our staff, I promise to do everything I can as an editor to help you publish the best work possible and continue to grow as a writer.
Apply here, and I look forward to hearing from you!
