Calling all writers; your sport needs you

Calling all writers; your sport needs you

Are you a writer? And are you passionate about volleyball? If so, Volleyball England (VE) wants to hear from you.

At VE, we want to start communicating rather differently with our core market of clubs, players and volunteers, across Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Sitting Volleyball. Facts and figures remain important but we want to produce more stories on what clubs are doing up and down the country. We want to publish more insights and opinions, human interest stories, advice guides and debates on the issues affecting our sport.

And we want to produce all of this in a more personable and engaging tone of voice.

To do this, we’re going to need a bit of help. Therefore, we want to assemble a network of volunteer writers across all our volleyballing regions.

Writing may be your hobby or your profession, you may be retired or recently graduated; it really doesn’t matter. What matters is having a decent network of contacts in your region, an eye for a story and an ability to write in an engaging and conversational style.

In return, we can’t offer any financial reward (sorry!) but we can offer a by-line and some visibility (for those of you looking to build up a portfolio), the opportunity to profile the great work going on in your region and the chance to contribute to VE’s new-look engagement strategy.

If you want to be part of our VE writer network, please contact us at communications@volleyballengland.org. Let us know a little bit about your writing background and the region you could cover.
