    Not sure if this has been brought up here, but our very own Glenn Stout has a really interesting post today. He's starting up a project for SBNation and is looking for material. And...you'll be paid!


    Seems pretty exciting. I'm already thinking up ideas to send to Glenn (which he encourages in the post, so start brainstorming or putting together pieces).

    So does this mean you have to be a freelancer or can you send stuff in on spec even if you currently have a gig?

    This could be a great opportunity to write those things that just wouldn't fit into a local paper due to space or content constraints. I'd highly encourage folks to use the opportunity to stretch themselves as writers.

    Exactly. If you currently have a gig and are available to write something that for any reason you cannot for your current shop, please consider this. I'd like to see a fully formed pitch - or close to it - more than "I'm a writer and want to write for you," but I understand that might require a conversation or some back and forth first. Keep in mind this is for a more national audience - not the more typical SBNation niches. As someone who got into the business going over the transom with zero experience, you don't have to have vast experience (although it helps), but be good and approach this like a pro.
