Tar Heel Blog is looking for new writers

Want to write about UNC sports? Join our team!

NCAA Football: ACC Football Championship-Clemson at North Carolina Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

UNC’s football season is already underway and basketball season will be here before you know it. We are looking for two writers to join the Tar Heel Blog staff this season as we continue to try and improve and expand our coverage of Carolina sports, and would love for you to join the team if you have ever considered writing about UNC.

These two openings are remote, contract roles compensated with monthly stipends.

What do these roles entail?

The writers will be responsible for writing two posts per week about the Tar Heels. The posts can be breaking news, recap, original analysis, or any other UNC-related topics approved by the THB editors.

Our best candidates will:

  • Have a passion for the Tar Heels and will be already familiar with Tar Heel Blog.
  • Have writing experience — experience writing about sports and/or UNC is a bonus.
  • The ability to cover UNC football and basketball — other sports are a plus.
  • The ability to self-edit and write clean copy.
  • Be reliable and consistent.

What do I do if I’m interested?

Please submit a cover letter detailing why you’re the best person for the role and at least two writing samples to tanya[dot]anderson[at] With the football season already underway, we will be moving quickly on these roles. Please submit no later than September 20th to be considered.

Vox Media, SB Nation, and Tar Heel Blog are committed to bringing you coverage of the Tar Heels from a diverse array of voices and perspectives. If your experience and background do not perfectly align with every single thing we’re looking for, but you believe you have the ability to thrive in this role, we encourage you to apply.
