How do you become a designated writer for Sportskeeda? The process is as challenging as it is fun!
For starters, you must strive to get as many of your articles tagged as "Editor's Pick" as possible. Which articles get tagged as Editor's Pick? A few pointers:
1. The article must contain 5 or less errors (by 'errors' we mean language, grammatical or even mechanical typos/formatting errors);
2. The article must be on a relevant subject, and must have a strong impact on the reader;
3. The article must be thoroughly engaging for an average sports fan.
In general, an Editor's Pick article must stand out from all the other articles for its quality. Now that we've got that cleared up, here are the minimum eligibility requirements for each level of the writer hierarchy at Sportskeeda:
This is the first step in your Sportskeeda career, and one that can act as the best possible preparation to climb to the higher levels. As a Correspondent, you are identified among our readers as a Sportskeeda-affiliated writer, which is a remarkable achievement in itself.
