Who is behind Y Ddraig? We were founded by three passionate Welsh football fans; Scott Salter, Craig Muncey and Tomos Knox. Joining us is a team of passionate Welsh sport fans who love writing about sport and the country they love.
What experience do you have? Between us, we’ve written for some of the biggest sport magazines (both print and online).
What’s the story? We started Y Ddraig with one goal; to become the home of Welsh football writing. We started with a premium newsletter, which we decided to morph into an online magazine after issue 3.
Why did you scrap the newsletter? In short, we weren’t reaching the fans we wanted to. We believe that with our new online magazine that we can reach the fans our writing deserves; becoming the voice of fans on Welsh sport.
What’s the goal? Our goal is to become the home of Welsh sport writing. We’ve also got ambitions to venture into a print publication; something we think Welsh sport is missing.
Will I get paid for writing for Y Ddraig? Sadly, we cannot pay any writers at present. We do not make any money (there’s no advertising on our site, meaning our content is always free). Writing for Y Ddraig is a chance to be part of an exciting team of writers — we want you to come on board.
That said, with the goal of venturing into print magazine; should that be the case we will pay our contributors for that project.
