Our Purpose

The Tailgate Talk is a nonprofit volunteer platform intended on providing contributors a constructive space to explore interests in sports through writing, editing, and publishing. 

Created in May 2020, The Tailgate Talk serves as a creative outlet for opinionated individuals.  Our purpose is to provide a tangible platform for our contributors— writing is a critical and fundamental skill, and providing an opportunity for a creative workspace is necessary for all facets of life.

By supporting and encouraging us, we aim to build upon critical thinking, writing skills, and encourage others to become better members of an informed society.
