Titan Sized Help Wanted: Writers & More!


Do you love Tennessee Titans football? Are you an opinionated individual who’d like to have your voice heard?

At Titan Sized, new talent is always welcome. Whether it’s writing an article about breaking news, an in-depth article about stats, or an opinion article—we do it all.

Check out some of our open positions, some of which are brand new:

Regular Contributor / Staff Writer
Contributors: All writers start off as contributors until they’ve proven that they can meet the weekly requirements. Excluding June – July, all contributors should submit a minimum of four 300-word articles per month. During June – July, those requirements are softened to two per month.

Staff Writers: Successful contributors receive promotions to staff writers. The key differences between contributors and staff writers involve submission requirements and express publishing privileges. Excluding June – July, all staff writers should submit a minimum of six 300-word articles per month. During June – July, those requirements are softened to three per month.

Fantasy Football Contributor / Staff Writer
Are you a fantasy football fanatic? Can you incorporate your knowledge into articles about the Tennessee Titans and any weekly opponent? Does your knowledge include players for all 32 teams?

Requirements vary for each writer. Titans-based fantasy writers are required to complete four articles per month. NFL-based fantasy contributors are required to join a weekly staff project where they choose their start ‘em, sit ‘em, sleeper, waiver and PPR player of the week.

Draft Contributor / Staff Writer
Are you a college football fanatic who also enjoys the Tennessee Titans? Do you enjoy doing team/first-round mock drafts all-year round? Do you start targeting college players who’d fit on the Titans as soon as the college football season starts, maybe sooner? Enjoy scouting reports?

This is a new position. Requirements based on status as contributor or staff writer. In addition, draft contributor/staff writers are expected to be involved in any site-wide mock drafts that are conducted from February – April.

Project Participant
Maybe writing isn’t your forte. Do you enjoy fantasy football, NFL pick’em, mock drafts, draft report cards and participating in any type of group project? Would you prefer to do 50- to 100-word evaluations and not complete articles of 300-plus words?

This is a new position that we’ve created for fans who have an opinion but are more short-winded than your typical contributor / staff writer. A project participant has a lot of direct contact (e-mail) with the editor.

Guest Spot (Non-Staff Position)
Want to get something off your chest but you’re not interested in a permanent staff position? Check out our Guest Spot.

Not Listed?
Maybe you have an idea for how you could contribute that hasn’t been noted? Titan Sized always listens for new ideas.
