The writers will be responsible for writing posts about women’s hockey on agreed-upon topics and schedules. We have openings for multiple contributors.

  • Have a passion for women’s hockey and will already be familiar with The Ice Garden.
  • Be able to produce and edit clean copy.
  • Be comfortable working in a remote environment.
  • Have a skill set, availability, and experience that lines up with the specific role you’re applying to fill.
  • Aptitude for Q&As and interviewing.
  • Previous hockey writing experience is preferred.

How do you apply?

To apply, please submit a cover letter explaining why you’re the best fit for the role, a resume detailing any previous writing experience, and a hockey-related sample. You must submit all three items via the Vox Media careers page to be considered for these roles.
