As UNC prepares to open a new season of football in less than a month, we here at Tar Heel Blog are still settling into our new team. The blog has definitely changed and grown over the last month and a half, and the writing staff and I are so excited to see where we can go from here.
Getting into the thick of a season like football or basketball comes with more responsibility than providing offseason content. I think the staff we have assembled to fill the void left by Brian, Doc, and co is really strong, but we could use an extra couple hands to really expand our coverage of all things Carolina.
That being said, I am looking for a couple people to jump on board before football season begins. You’d be asked to write two articles per week, generally, unless something big is taking place. Having an outlet to talk about your favorite team in front of thousands of people can be a super rewarding experience, and I love having as many perspectives as possible.
If you’re a fan of the Tar Heels and interested in joining our staff, please email me a writing sample between 700-1000 words on one of the following two topics.
- What does UNC football need to do to return to the ACC Championship game this year?
- What does UNC basketball need to do to return to the Final Four this year?
You can send your emails to tbondurant12 at gmail dot com along with any questions you may have about joining the staff. I’m always happy to answer.
The deadline for submissions will be this Friday, August 19th at midnight.
Thank you to all of you who have stuck around during all the changes, and welcome to all of you who have stumbled upon us since then. We do what we do to hopefully provide you with as much Carolina content as you could ever need, and I’m excited for that to continue into football season and beyond.
