I’m really proud of what we’ve built here at Fear the Sword covering the world champion Cleveland Cavaliers, and we’re always trying to improve. In this vein, we’ll be adding to our staff. The Cavs are a unique team, but there is always a ton of stuff going on around and with them. We have a fun staff with a large profile around the basketball community. Past writers for our site have gone on to work for the NBA, Nike basketball, CBS Sports, and we have a good number of people who have started out writing unpaid for us that have moved on to paid positions and become editors, gaining responsibility and insight.
We are looking for any and all kinds of writers. We have had people write poems and essays about existential dread for game recaps. We’ve also interviewed David Griffin and have been credentialed with the Cavs for a half decade. Whatever your interest with basketball is, we have a home for you. While this will start off as an unpaid position, there are opportunities for growth down the road. We like people who can help with news stories and game recaps, but we’re also looking for people who can break down plays and numbers.
If interested, please apply here. Please note that I am not doing the hiring on my own, and simply letting me know of your interest isn’t going to do a ton of good. We thank you for being interested, and hope to have you involved. Go Cavs. But also, we hire non-Cavs fans. So that’s fine too.
