Want to Write for FanGraphs?

We’re pleased to announce today that FanGraphs is now hiring, and we’re looking for talented writers with interesting things to say about the sport. While this is FanGraphs and an analytical bent will certainly be of good use here, we also employ Carson Cistulli – writers of all shades are welcome to apply.

If you’re a writer looking for a paid, part-time position and a chance to show the world what you’ve got, drop us a line at wanted@fangraphs.com with the subject line “FanGraphs Writer Application – 2011” (note – this is very helpful to us. Please do this.) Resumes and/or samples of your prior writings are strongly encouraged. Applications will be accepted for positions with FanGraphs, RotoGraphs, and NotGraphs, though Carson suggests that NotGraphs applicants should “have a working knowledge both of the WAR leaderboards and the collected works of PG Wodehouse.”

Strong applicants will be able to write in a clear and concise manner, provoke interesting discussion with original thoughts, and work within a regular schedule to produce content on a consistent basis. A solid understanding of how to work with the data here on the site is also going to be necessary. If that describes you, feel free to drop us a line, and we’ll review your application and see if you’d be a good fit to join the site.
