Writers sought for NPJ high school sports coverage

The Natchitoches Parish Journal presents opportunities to pad your income and be sure your favorite local high school football team gets timely, quality coverage this fall.

The NPJ is seeking writers to cover local sports, focusing on the three parish high schools – Natchitoches Central, St. Mary’s and Lakeview.

The Journal will pay a negotiable per-story rate. Gasoline for travel to out-of-town games is reimbursable, with payment on a weekly basis.

Game stories and preview stories are the primary assignments to complete weekly during the 10-game series, and the playoffs to follow.

Work opportunities extend through the school year with basketball and spring sports.

Interested? Have questions?

Email Doug Ireland at sports@journalservicesllc.com with your contact info.

If you can provide links or pdf or word docs of writing samples, that elevates your opportunity.

If not, we’ll provide a couple of tryout opportunities with local events.

Reach out to Ireland and he will respond quickly. Help assure your school’s team gets the quality, timely coverage you want to see.
