Staff writers wanted
As the holidays draw closer, the end of the semester is approaching. But with every end, there is a beginning, in this case, the Winter 2015 semester at SC4. As the Erie Square Gazette finishes up its production schedule for the Fall semester, new ideas for the next semester begin to take fold.
To implement these new ideas, which include covering more topics that peak student interests, the ESG will need of more staff writers. Opportunities for staff writers include the covering of both campus and community events, writing opinion pieces, and reviewing movies, books, video games, and other entertainment outlets.
To be considered a staff writer officially, one must enroll in the Journalism Practicum; a one credit course and can be added to his/her class list by either going to sc4.edu in the “Register for classes” section, or by talking to an academic advisor.
If one is interested in joining the ESG, but cannot enroll in the practicum for financial or other reasons, don’t be discouraged. Students can still write for the paper under the title of Guest Writer. It is preferred however, that even for guest writers, that those who want to write for the paper attend our weekly meetings every Thursday from 2 to 2:50 p.m. in room 123 of the Main Building.
Writing articles for the Erie Square Gazette can help to build a portfolio if the writer is considering pursuing a career in news, whether it be for print, internet, or television.
Anyone with questions about writing for the paper is encouraged to e-mail the ESG at firstname.lastname@example.org.
