Illinois Matmen Seeking Freelance Wrestling Writers


If you haven’t noticed, wrestling just isn’t getting much coverage in mainstream media these days, particularly¬†in local newspapers. Every year, you see less and less wrestling related stories.

We at Illinois Matmen have decided it is time to expand our original news coverage of duals, tournaments, teams, and wrestlers across the entire state.

To accomplish this, we need to build a pool of experienced freelance wrestling reporters from all over Illinois. We want the best writers available!

If you are interested in joining our team, contact us with information about yourself, where you are physically located, your writing experience, and links to some of your work.

We already have some great writers lined up but need to grow our pool and expand our geographic representation.

We look forward to hearing from you.
