Write for Raising Zona


Have you ever wanted to be a sportswriter? Have you ever wanted to write about your favorite teams and get to do so on one of the biggest sports networks on the web?

If so, here’s your opportunity. Raising Zona, FanSided’s Arizona Cardinals blog, is looking for more sportswriters to help us out. We cover all things Cardinals, from game previews and recaps to analysis to breaking news. If you want anything to do with writing about the Cardinals, then RZ is the place for you.

FanSided, RZ’s parent network, displays its articles from team pages on Sports Illustrated, so your articles will be seen on SI. In addition, FanSided reached an agreement on a partnership with Bleacher Report, so articles on RZ can definitely reach a lot of viewers. Some NFL sites accumulated about 900,000 readers in April, and RZ is quickly reaching that plateau. Editor feedback is given, so RZ is a great way to launch a sports writing career in more ways than one.

We currently have one editor.  Scott Allen, one of FanSided’s most tenured bloggers. He is enthusiastic about making RZ better than it already is. Anyone can help us achieve that goal, so we’d love to add staff writers.

As long as you know anything about the Cardinals and are willing to write at least one article per week (you can take breaks, but make sure to be reliable), you can help us out. Email  Scott at scottaz30@aol.com if you are interested, and we look forward to working with you!
