Media

Women's Football Writer (NOW CLOSED)


Are you an aspiring football journalist who is passionate and knowledgeable about the W-League? If so, one of Australia's most popular women's only football news site, The Women's Game, is looking for you! What is required on a monthly basis is: a) A match report or reaction piece on all W-League matches throughout the season (simple reaction piece containing post-match TV quotes would suffice) OR b) A short analysis piece, for example: '3 Things We Learned... ' on all W-League matches throughout the season. This is the preferable format but is not essential. During the off-season, The Women's Game is open to negotiation depending on what the writer feels is a fair amount of work for the remuneration and can manage around their other commitments. In the off-season, ideally we would be looking for two to three original interview pieces per week. They don't have to be long or in-depth, and it is not about handling news and media releases, but somebody who is eager to conduct original interviews with W-League and Matildas footballers and file interesting profiles, reports or analysis. Remuneration is in the vicinity of $300/month negotiable for the right candidate. For further information, or to apply, please contact the Editor of The Women's Game, Lucas Radbourne-Pugh via email editor@thewomensgame.com.au or telephone 0431 995 960.
