Then look no further. Emerald City Swagger is looking to add new contributors to its team and we want your voice!

Emerald City Swagger has always had the goal of providing the best analysis, opinions, and news on all of the Seattle sports teams.

More from Emerald City Swagger


We like to let our staff write about the aspects of whichever team they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering the Seattle Mariners, Seattle Seahawks or Seattle Sounders. We even have opportunities to cover college sports, including the Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars.

Maybe you’re more of a recruiting junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing could have. Or even just chipping in on game previews, roundtable discussions on staff about how each 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.

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 sports, right?). This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just simply passionate about Seattle sports 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), a pertinent writing sample,  and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give it your best. We’ll be in touch from there.

If you have any questions about the roles, please feel free to email our recruiting director, Kyle Franzoni, at kyle.franzoni@fansided.com with any questions.
