Felicia Chan, Creative Director at Title Nine, is on the hunt for a writer to cover for their in-house writer who will be out on maternity leave. You can work onsite if in the Bay Area, or over the web if not, or travel arrangements can be made. From Felicia: “Title Nine is a privately-held, omni-channel retailer that sells women’s athletic apparel and sportswear. We have 23 retail stores, but the bulk of our business is transacted on-line. We are everyday athletes and fitness fanatics passionate about our brands and the impact that sports and the pursuit of fitness have on our lives and our customers. Our offices are in a converted warehouse nestled right next to a park where we often hold boot camp classes.

  • You are fearless and funny – and your work shows it.
  • You know how to write copy that that SELLS.
  • You have a command of prose and tell a great story – in 10 words or 100.
  • You know how to captivate, motivate and move our customer to action in a simple headline or call to action.

Senior CW Wanted: Firehouse, Dallas


Greg Hunter, GCD at Firehouse in Dallas, is on the hunt for a Senior Writer. From Greg: “Firehouse is looking for a Senior Writer. We don’t care about the exact number of years you have under your belt, if your resume is full of super sexy, well-known brands or whether you’ve executed in whatever the trendiest medium of the moment is. All we care about is that you’ve been doing this for a while at an enviously high level and you have the work to prove it.

We also care that you haven’t lost the hunger to do great work that got you into this business in the first place. And while it should go without saying, you need to be good with words and have a big ole brain.

Other than that, we like nice people. So if you’re a jerk, please don’t apply.

If you’re interested, email us at creative@firehouseagency.com. And include a link to your work. That’s kind of important.”

Eric is a senior copywriter at Vitro in San Diego. The first project on his site is the Kerri Cannon for Asics and the World Series of Volleyball. It shot a volleyball 65mph with pinpoint accuracy, just like ace volleyballer Kerri Walsh—and could be controlled/aimed by participants over the web. Good times!
