What is expected of a Contributing Writer?

Whatever you can commit to. At this point, we have no budget and cannot offer any form of monetary compensation. We understand that college students are busy and we aim to have mutually-beneficial relationships with our writers.

A typical Contributing Writer will commit to submitting 2-3 pieces of content every week, as scheduled by the editorial calendar. At minimum, we ask for a commitment of 1 piece of content, every 2 weeks, as scheduled. Additionally, those interested in editing or marketing may be assigned related tasks. Writers will achieve vital experience and further develop their editorial and writing abilities.

The experience can help you to develop your personal editorial brand, connect with a larger audience & gain editorial experience working with an online publication. All submitted content will be reviewed by our editor, and you will receive feedback when appropriate.

The vision for the end of the summer is to have the site be a much more active, content-filled and educational resource for college students.
