We’re happy to talk to individuals with a variety of interests, but we’re really looking for writers who can help with editorials, particularly about Michigan State basketball, and/or non-revenue sports coverage. Those with other interests, like recruiting, football, advanced stats, or others, may be considered as well.

To be a successful contributor here, you’ll need:

  • To be very comfortable using social media, especially Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram
  • The ability to write or research without a ton of hand-holding or supervision
  • The ability to come up with story ideas
  • A passion for Michigan State athletics
  • The ability to consistently meet deadlines

Writing experience is nice, but not super required. A flexible schedule, including some occasional availability on evenings or weekends is also nice, but not required. We’re looking for the best voices, not necessarily the most experienced writers.

If interested, shoot us a writing sample and your Twitter handle to

Come help us make one of the best Michigan State sites on the web that much better.
