With the new season just a few months away, Mid Major Madness is starting to get things in line for its coverage for next year and one of the areas where it's looking to expand is on the staff. As such, Mid Major Madness is looking for readers who are interesting in joining the team.
Covering so many conferences on one site is certainly a major requirement, which is why the site is looking to solidify its coverage and make sure all your favorite teams get their due. The basics on the openings are outlined below, but the biggest things that MMM is looking for are writing quality, dedication, and availability for coverage. Specifically, the site is looking for people that can contribute on a weekly basis and truly are looking to get their material out there.
With that, here is some basic information on the openings.

Who is Mid Major Madness looking to bring on staff?
How do I apply?
- Please put together a resume and/or some type of document describing your relevant experience that you can bring to MMM. Keep in mind that your 5th grade chemistry project may not be all that relevant to a sports writing position.
- Please use the site's FanPost feature to submit an application article. Please compile a preview of a team of your choosing (of the conferences listed above) for the 2015-16 season of 500 or more words. This article should be titled: "[Insert Team] 2015-16 Season Preview." For instance, it would read, "Dayton Flyers 2015-16 Season Preview" for Dayton. This is the same editor that the contributors on MMM use on a daily basis.
- Please e-mail the above information to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject titled: "Mid Major Madness Writer Application."
