Chicago Blackhawks Writers Wanted – Apply Today

By Tim Redinger

FanSided and Blackhawk Up are looking for Chicago Blackhawk fans and writers.

Blackhawk Up has steadily grown as FanSided’s home for Chicago Blackhawks coverage dating back to when the site was first launched. The ‘Hawks have been the standard in the NHL for several years now, and Blackhawk Up has been there every step of the way.

The 2015-2016 season is in full swing, and there is plenty going on in Blackhawks Nation for fans to talk about. When will (if it will) Patrick Kane’s point streak end? Will another championship banner be raised this year?

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Chicago Blackhawks sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too? Maybe you’re just stumbling across us for the first time and you like what you see. Maybe your family and friends have told you to start writing about the team. We are looking to add to our staff here on site and this could be your chance to grab a stick and join the team. Blackhawk Up is looking for contributing writers to join their team.

If you have plenty to talk about – then we have a spot for you.


We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the team they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering the minor leagues. Maybe you’re more of a transaction junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing or trade could have. Or even just chipping in on series previews, roundtable discussions on staff about how the team should approach the offseason or whether a big move is needed to get them back on top, or helping with a number of other potential story ideas there could be a place for you here on the team.

Contributing Writers are asked to contribute 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it. We know that for most this is mostly a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too, as most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides hockey, right?).

This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just simply passionate about the Blackhawks and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us? Applying is very easy. Head on over and complete an application. It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged) and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give it your best. We’ll be in touch from there.
