As an online sportswriter for isportsweb.com, I was required to publish two articles on the website per week. The articles must meet specific guidelines including word count maximums, style requirements, legal considerations on photography use, and more.
The article I have included in my portfolio is written about Vince Carter, a basketball legend.
I chose this article out of the 40 I’ve written to date because of the substance of the article. Instead of being a game recap which is typical on the website, I dove into one player’s impact and fit with every team he’s played on. I received positive feedback from the website administrators for a job well done on this article.
This sample overall displays good storytelling while providing factual information presented in an efficient yet entertaining manner. I enjoy all forms of writing,
however writing for isportsweb.com is particularly fun for me because it combines my enjoyment of writing with my passion for sports.
