World’s No.1 athletics magazine is on the search for assistance
AW is searching for new contributors to help with our events coverage online and in the magazine.
We are particularly on the look-out for people in the Birmingham area and the Midlands generally.
Potential contributors would be required to write reports and/or provide photographs for our pages, but also, increasingly, help out with our online coverage and social media.
This role may suit you if you already attend a number of athletics meetings throughout the year and have time to contribute to AW while you are there and at the event’s end.
We are after contributors who can write in a clear and accurate style, have a decent knowledge of the sport, plenty of energy and enthusiasm, a willingness to work unsociable hours and an obsession with accuracy.
In addition to covering events online and in the magazine, there are also some opportunities to write features, news stories, get involved in proof reading or join our team of results helpers.
AW began life as a monthly magazine in 1945 but nowadays in addition to our weekly publication we strive to provide a definitive coverage of the No.1 Olympic sport 24/7 on our website and social media.
If you want to be part of our team and think you’ve got what it takes, then email the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief summary of your background and abilities.
