The problem with a student paper is that students tend to move on and leave the school after they graduate; unless of course they’re like me and stick arounnd for more learning in a different program. So we want to know who out of you wants to write for us next year. It’s a paid contract position, but the best part of the job is getting your voice heard by the student body and of course being a published writer. We are a publication after all and so if you end up writing for us you’ll be able to throw that on a resume!
We’re looking for writers for all sorts of positions so send us a writing sample along with your resume and what section you’d like to write for (it can even be one we don’t have yet). Don’t be afraid to submit, you’d be surprised about the kinds of stories and section we’re willing to have. If you think it will interst a part of the studet body then please apply!
I have had the pleasure of writing and of course working on the editting team for The Bolt and while I love both jobs,, writing is always so much fun.
One thing we are looking for is more school centered articles and sections as we would like people to get talking about all the great events around our campus and all the great experiences you can have.
If you don’t know what you want to write about that’s not a problem either! Actually, that’s why we, the editors, are here. Send us your resume and writing sample and we’ll start the process of figuring out where you belong on our writing staff.
As the paper grows, so does our staffing budget so don’t think that we’re going to fill up on spots and you won’t get in; it’s also not first come first serve so even if you’re at the deadline send your stuff in.
If you have any questions feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com or stop by the office. Even if you just want to bounce an idea off of us.
We would appretiate having your applications in by April 11th so we can go through them and get back to you before the end of the school year.
See you in our last issue in another couple weeks every one and get those resumes and writing samples flowing ourway ASAP.
