Inside Fights is Hiring!
by Shawn M. Smith on November 27, 2012

As we head into 2013, Inside Fights (a Fox Sports affiliate) needs some change and thus we’re looking to expand our team. Our small but plucky staff of writers is looking to expand and what better way to find new blood through our readership!

Inside Fights is looking to once again expand due to the growth of MMA and Boxing coverage needed to sustain and grow a website. With so much going on we’re swamped and could use new blood to come in and contribute immediately. We’ve gone through some changes and have the pieces in place; we just need some more hands on deck.

Right now, Inside Fights is looking for writers to come on board to help out with the sheer volume of news, opinion and ideas in the ever-shifting world of combat sports. If you think you’ve got what it takes, email editor-in-chief Shawn M. Smith with a writing sample.

You get a byline, potential to be featured on Fox Sports as well as a professional website to build a writing portfolio. Current and former members of the Inside Fights staff have had their work featured in USA Today, Scrapp! Magazine, The Ultimate Fighter.com, Fox Sports, Fighting Spirit Magazine, Heavy.com and more.

If you’re looking to become a member of the MMA media there’s no better place to start than here; don’t give your content away free as part of a Fan Post for other sites looking to exploit your work for money and give you nothing in return but the “possibility” of being on their staff. We here at Inside Fights will help develop your talents and abilities as a writer while also increasing your exposure, giving you an opportunity to become a writer and not just another person writing something to boost the SEO ranking of a large corporation.

Why line someone else’s pockets when you can make a real step in the right direction?

At Inside Fights you won’t just post something and hope for positive feedback from the internet; you’ll have hands-on mentoring designed to make you the best writer and journalist possible. The opportunity to receive great perks like event access, swag and the opportunity to attend press events, conventions and more is at your fingertips.

    Hi Shawn,

    What is the cut-off date for sending in your sample piece and how quickly should we expect any news either way?

  • Kubryk

    WithEase,

    This is Scott, the other man in charge her e… no cut off date. Just get us 4-500 words on something that hasn’t been published before relating to MMA.

    Word back should be quick … we’re looking to reload the staff for 2013.
