Colorado Rockies fans, Rox Pile is looking for new writers
By Kevin Henry
It may be the offseason for the Colorado Rockies, but that does not mean that fans are not looking for information about the team. In fact, even though it is October and the Rockies lost in the Wild Card game to the Arizona Diamondbacks, this is quickly becoming one of our best months in terms of Web traffic.
With that in mind, we are looking for new writers to help us cover the Rockies and continue to make Rox Pile one of the fastest-growing, most-read and vibrant sites devoted to this young and exciting team making noise in the National League West. If you are a college student looking to get your name on the sports writing radar, a fan who is passionate about the Rockies or someone who enjoys diving into the statistical side of baseball, we would love to have you join our team.
So what does it take to be a part of the Rox Pile team? First, it takes you clicking here to fill out a form and start the process. However, I wanted to take a few moments and answer some of the most-asked questions I have heard from people who are interested in joining our site as writers.

How much do I need to write?
You don’t need to write every day. We know that this is a passion of yours, not a full-time job. With that in mind, we ask our writers to author one to two articles per week. If that does not work into your schedule, talk to us. We are happy to work with you to find the right balance for you.
What would I write about?
There are so many great things to cover with this team! Whether you love the statistics, making predictions or voicing your opinion, we have an opportunity for you.
Additionally, we are always glad to brainstorm with our authors about potential topics and angles. Whether you want to write something on your own or team up with a site expert, you have options at Rox Pile.
How long do stories need to be?
Again, we are flexible. From 400-word editorials to 4,000-word deep dives into the numbers, we have seen it all at Rox Pile.
Do I have to live in Colorado?
Absolutely not. We know there are Rockies fans all over the country and all over the world. As long as you have a passion for the game, you don’t necessarily have to call Colorado home.
