Guest Writer

If you’re interested in sharing whats on your mind in sports, but never had that outlet, then you we have found each other. You want to commit, but have reservations because of your hectic lifestyle (haci estamos todos) that’s cool.

If you can not submit three articles per month, you can contribute as un invitado, a guest writer. We are not stressing, so guest contributions can be submitted at your pace (we know how hectic it is out there). If all you can commit to is once a month, or  yearly that’s cool.

Article Submission Guidelines & Checklist

Submit topic matter to Cesar@latinosports.com by Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST. It should include:

  • A couple of sentences describing the topic
  • Relevance to a unique audience that wants to know our side of the story in sports.
  • Title

Approved articles must be submitted by 6:00 a.m. EST on Friday to Cesar@latinosports.com.

All submissions will be reviewed by our editors. Basic editing might be done and perhaps returned for the following reasons:

  • Lack of basic writing including Introduction, body and conclusion
  • Lack of continuity and clarity of subject matter
  • Excessive grammar, punctuation and/or spelling errors, improper abbreviations
  • Lack of credible sources/references (Wikepedia should be used sparingly)
