The Diamondback is currently seeking opinion columnists for Summer and Fall 2014. Columnists generally write every other week, and often focus on political, social or cultural issues, but each column must have a campus connection of some sort. Columnists do not write about specific movies, music, or sporting events (we have separate sections for those topics). Although international or national news is worthy of covering, to do so our columnists must always answer the question, “Why should students at this university care?” If you can answer that question and there’s an angle you can continually write from, we encourage you to apply!
Please send a sample column (approx. 500-600 words) addressed to Maggie Cassidy and Caroline Carlson to firstname.lastname@example.org.
