Cowboys Ride For Free, the SB Nation blog covering Oklahoma State athletics, is hiring a writer to help cover Oklahoma State sports. The writer will be responsible for writing about the Cowboys on an agreed-upon schedule. We're looking for someone who can adeptly cover Oklahoma State golf as well as other sports.

  • Be able to produce and edit clean copy. 
  • Be able to meet deadlines. 
  • Be able to write knowledgeably and accurately about Oklahoma State sports. 
  • Be comfortable working in a remote environment. 
  • Previous experience writing about sports and specifically golf is preferred, but not required. 

This is a remote contractor position that pays a monthly stipend. Some daytime availability is preferred because of tee times. To apply, submit a resume, cover letter, and a golf-related writing sample. You must submit all three items to be considered for this role.
