If you're looking for freelance, or full- or part-time writing work, have a look at the job search feature on The site has been around since 1999 and the job search engine appears to pull postings from all around the web. A simple search for "sports" turned up a huge amount of results.

There's also a section heading for "Sports Writing Jobs." This may very well be a go-to site for your freelance or other sports writing job hunt. It's free, which is always good.

From what I've seen, I'll give it a five-star recommendation. There's a reason it's been around for almost a decade.

Podcasting as Sportswriting?

If you're a regular user of Sportswriter HQ, you probably spend a considerable amount of time thinking of new and innovative ways to break into sportswriting, or at least to make some money from writing.

Consider podcasting. If not your own podcast, possibly writing for another sports-related podcast. It will take some research time to find some podcasts (which will be partially done for you in our next post here). Then, you'll need to contact the creator/publisher of the podcast to make your pitch to submit material.

It may be long shot, but it is at least worth a try, since podcasting, like blogging, isn't going away; only getting stronger and more widespread. In fact, it may be more to your benefit to create and publish your own podcast. A simple search for golf related podcasts has revealed a few, but not many, out there. I'm sure the same goes for many other sports.
