Here at Siren we’re thrilled to announce this new opportunity to assist the next generation of women who want to enter the sports media landscape.
Women’s Sports to the Front!
This is something we passionately campaign for at Siren through our own coverage and through advocating the work of other women writing on women’s sport.
But we’re also keen to give as much support as we can to the next generation of women in sports media who can continue to make a difference.
So, we have a very special announcement!
Today, we are launching the Siren Emerging Sports Writer Program!
This program seeks to give emerging sports writers needing additional support and experience, an opportunity to transition from higher education, writing courses or other professional sectors, into the environment of sports media.
The Siren Emerging Sports Writer Program is for women or non-binary folk who are at the beginning of their sports media journey and are looking for opportunities to have their work published, build a portfolio and gain more experience about the field of sports journalism.
Support the Siren Emerging Sports Writer Program!
To assist with funding this program, and future programs to support women in sport media, we have released these limited edition pins!
These pins are just $10 including postage in Australia. (contact us for international postage options) and profits go directly to supporting the Siren Emerging Sports Writer Program.
You can also add a donation to your pin if you want to provide further support:
Support us, the future of women in sport and show your love for women’s sport by purchasing a pin!

Other ways to support Siren: A Women in Sport Collective
Our Siren Supporters are our biggest source of income. Every paid subscription helps us to commission more women’s sport features and profiles, cover more women’s sports and bring you more women in sport stories. For the price of a coffee a month you can help us to keep doing just that!
Alternatively, you can get your hands on some official Siren merch and wear your support of women in sport proudly!
All funds from our Siren Supporters go directly back into Siren to help run the collective, commission writers and deliver programs like the Siren Emerging Sports Writer Program.
Thank YOU for all your support!
