2017 Writing Recap

2017 Writing Recap

In 2017 I had another exciting year of writing about fans where I pumped out 17 articles for a combined word length of 31,000 words. Perhaps unsurprisingly I only used ‘fan engagement’ 127 times too! (Maybe that PhD won’t be so laborious to write in the end?).

I’m extremely grateful to the publications that gave me writing and media speaking opportunities this year to talk about fans from Sport Techie and The Conversation to Sport Business International and ABC Radio.

I’m always looking for new writing opportunities as it keeps my mind fresh as to the latest in this space plus I really enjoy the educational side of what I do here so please touch base if you have an idea for a story. My rates per word/article are very competitive and have involved craft beer or sports merchandise in the past so I’m open to all offers.

All of my published work from 2017 can be found below however my highlights from the year include:
