1L Editors (5)

We have five open slots and to apply, just send us a statement of interest (about 250 words) and resume. No journalism experience is necessary, although past editing and writing experience is an asset. We will go over our style guide with you should you be selected and brief you on how we usually edit the paper. The time commitment for 1L Editors would be to attend our monthly lunchtime pitch meetings as well as our editing meetings on the last Friday of every month. (Timing is subject to change, depending on the circumstances.) The editing meetings usually run about 5 to 6 hours and involves all the editors working together to finalize the upcoming issue.


Anyone can write for us! We highly recommend attending our monthly pitch meetings (typically the second Monday of every month), where you will be able to pitch your ideas, or pick up an article that someone else has suggested. Alternately, reach out whenever inspiration strikes, or when you come across some spicy information. No need to send in an application for this, we’re looking forward to seeing you at a pitch meeting!
