What can I write about?
HoopSocial is seeking anything basketball-related. We have categories in our blog for the NBA, WNBA, College Basketball, Basketball Betting, Draft Prospects, NBA Top Shot, and we are always open to new opportunities and ideas.
Critical pieces are welcomed, as long as they are well thought-out and reasoned. We are not interested in hosting shallow hit-pieces on the site. We try to be forward-thinking, so we are always open to new ideas and pitches from our staff.
Writer Development: Our Senior Editor is very active in working with our staff. He has more than two decades of experience in sports journalism, is a noted author in print and online, and has helped many writers go on to write in College and other professional companies. For those with the interest and aptitude, he is happy to do the same.
You’ll have access to our comprehensive style and grammar guides, and receive as much critical feedback on your work as you would like to get.
Author Bio: Each one of your posts will feature an author bio where we can include links to your own personal website, podcast, or social media accounts. These will appear on your archive page, as well as every article that is published. This is a great way to establish more credibility for yourself and your own organization(s) among the online basketball community.
Fill in the form below and tell us about yourself! We’ll get back in touch with you as soon as possible to provide the information and resources we’ll need to get you started. In the meantime, join our Discord community and get to know the team!
How Often Do I Have to Write?
There is no limit and no minimum quota. You can send us one article or 100. Either way, we’re happy to publish quality basketball content on our website.
Guests Posts and Backlinks
We have worked with publishers in the past on sponsored guest posts and placed relevant links in existing content. If the content is unique, basketball-related, and high-quality, we are always interested in providing guest post opportunities.
