Jays Journal seeks new writers, Blue Jays fans


Jays Journal has steadily grown as FanSided’s home for Toronto Blue Jays athletics coverage dating back to when the site was first launched in early 2009. The Blue Jays have seen the full gamut of on-field successes and failures in that time, and so too has the staff here on site. The constant has always been our goal here on site: to give you folks, our readers, the very best Blue Jays discussion that we possibly can.

Currently, the Jays are headlong into a a playoff push with the season in full swing, and the trade deadline is fast approaching. As such, we want to hit each and every piece of Blue Jays news, rumors, and analysis with a head of steam like no other. We need your help to do that.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Blue Jays sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too? Maybe you’re just stumbling across us for the first time and you like what you see. We are looking to add to our staff here on site and this could be your chance to grab a stick and join the team.

Jays Journal is currently looking to fill multiple roles on site for staff writer roles or contributor roles for the more casual writers just getting their legs under them.


We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the team they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering the minor leagues, major leagues, or any other topic under the Blue Jays umbrella. Maybe you’re more of a prospect junkie and you want to talk about the farm system. Perhaps you like tearing into some deep analysis of a struggling pitcher. Or even just chipping in on game previews, roundtable discussions on staff about how the team should approach the offseason or whether a big move is needed at the trade deadline, or helping with a number of other potential story ideas there could be a place for you here on the team.

Writers are asked to contribute 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We know that for most this is mostly a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too, as most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides sports, right?). This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just simply passionate about the Blue Jays and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us?

Applying is very easy. Head on over and complete an application. It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged) and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give it your best. We’ll be in touch from there.

If you have any questions about the roles, please feel free to email kyle.franzoni@fansided.com with any questions.
