My name is Robin Evans, I will be writing articles mainly about my cricket future predictions and current matches / series, and of course West Ham United. My cricket favourites are Stuart Broad, Ryan Sidebottom, Luke Wright and of course Monty Panesar. My football favourites are Dean Ashton and Fred Sears. Being a sports writer is something i would like to do in the future, so any of you more experienced writers, feel free to leave supportive feedback
hey robin, saw that u were a west ham fan, and decided to leave u a message. would really appreciate it if you could drop by my article, and leave some comments on what you think of the potential signings i have recommended for west ham?
Having been CL of the cricket section for a little while now, I'm looking for new ways to get people talking and build the community, hopefully making cricket one of the more popular sports on Bleacher Report.
With that in mind, I've decided to do a 'Round Table' column, based on Michael Whittenberg's examples in the NBA section. What this basically comprises of is making a collaborative article from many different writers about a particular subject.
The headline I want to use is:
'If you could have any player from another country in your national team, who would it be and why?'.
I want to get a global perspective and hopefully build a really good discussion.
If you want to take part, then please write 50-100 words answering that question and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll collate the quickest entrants and publish an article on BR.
Thanks a lot and hope to hear from you soon,
I've only just started out on the road myself - I'm about to graduate with an English degree, then get some experience with internships and move onto an NCTJ (National Certificate of Trainee Journalism).
I might be wrong but I don't think subject is vastly important when choosing a degree to suit journalism; obviously there are journalism degrees but they aren't the be all and end all.
What I would say, though, is get as much experience as you possibly can with any media outlets. Local papers, websites, anything. And if you do go to uni, get involved with the media centre as soon as possible.
And above all - keep writing. Write as much as you can to develop your style and get more experience. Build up a portfolio of your printed and online work.
Sorry I can't be more help to you - once I find the path myself maybe I can direct you to it!
