Write for Shattered Backboard
We here at Shattered Backboard firmly believe that women’s basketball, on every level, deserves the same type of comprehensive coverage you would find on any site covering the men’s game. It should be treated with the identical amount of respect and attention to detail as any other sport. That the people who cover it should be fans first and foremost, who not only love the WNBA, but get fidgety when they know the season is coming up and will argue about who should go first in the draft.
That description covers pretty much everyone who writes for Shattered Backboard.
And if you have what it takes, we would love for it to include you.
Shattered Backboard is currently looking for contributors to help us cover the WNBA as well as the international and college games. We are looking for people who consider themselves fans and have concrete opinions about what makes the women’s game great and what makes it not so great.
We are looking for people who can write more than just a game recap. We want folks who are looking to help the game grow and want to help us grow right along with it.
We are currently looking for people interested in helping us cover the following:
All college conferences
