We here at OKTC realize that we’ve been hypocrites, defending players’ rights to sell their autographs and get paid to play college ball all while asking you to write for us for free. So starting this week we will pay between $50-$100 per Bull Pen submission that gets published. The exact amount will depend on arbitrary things like quality of content, site traffic, and how well my day is going.
What’s in it for you besides dollar signs? Publication on an established site with a viewership of around half a million per month, the chance to become a regular, paid contributer, assistance from an editor with superb grammatical skills to make your article EVEN BETTER, and the invaluable feedback of our delightfully honest commenters.
What are we looking for? Original content not published elsewhere, with the exception being the wordpress blog read only by your mom and girlfriend. Submissions should be at least one of the following: relevant, interesting, funny. They don’t have to be sports related, especially once football season is over and we all pretend that basketball isn’t just a time filler until football starts again. TV, movies, pop culture, politics, personal experiences and current events are all acceptable. Explore the reason Deb from Dexter is universally hated (it’s not just me, right?) or review Rihanna’s desperate attempt to out twerk Miley in her new Pour It Up video. Whatever the topic, just entertain us.
