Octopus Thrower, FanSided’s home for Detroit Red Wings discussion, is looking for paid contributors!

Octopus Thrower has steadily grown as FanSided’s home for Detroit Red Wings coverage since the site was first launched. The Red Wings have experienced a wide range of success and failure during that time, and the team here on site has been there to cover it all.

That has always been our goal here at Octopus Thrower: To give our readers the very best Red Wings discussion that we possibly can.

Currently, the team is preparing for a final push for the postseason. We want to hit each and every noteworthy topic with a full head of steam. We also need to get ready for what promises to be an eventful offseason.

We need your help to do that.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Red Wings sites with regularity? Ever wonder if you should write about the team yourself? We are looking to add to our group of contributors and this could be your chance to join the team.

Role Description

We like to let our team write about the aspects of the Red Wings that they are most passionate about. Maybe you’re more of a transaction junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing could have. Perhaps you just want to chime in on current events. You may even want to show respect to the historical figures who paved the way. No matter what your pertinent interests may be, there could be a place for you here on the team at Octopus Thrower!

Contributors are asked to write one post per month. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We understand that everyone has their own motivation for wanting to write about their favorite team. No matter what your reason is, this is a chance to join a team of writers who are simply passionate about the Red Wings and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us?

Submitting a proposal is easy. Just head on over to submit your proposal today! 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.

Please also include a pertinent writing sample to reflect your current knowledge of the Red Wings. This can be an original article written exclusively for the purpose of your proposal or an existing article published elsewhere.

Once you have submitted your proposal, we’ll be in touch from there.
