Opening for College Magazine Staff Writer


We are seeking writers who are passionate about the college experience.  College Magazine writers capture student life through weekly articles.  The position begins with a 7-week writer training to tackle active voice, show vs. tell, interviewing sources and more.  Working closely with our editors, writers transform their writing skills and ultimately uncover their voice.  Writers also learn social media, branding and SEO tactics necessary for the real world of journalism.  The opportunity is 10 hours a week.  It's a volunteer, intensive and challenging writing experience.

Our graduates have gone on to careers at Mashable, Vox, NBC, Seventeen Magazine, U.S. News and World Report, Redbook, National Geographic, Random House, Rachael Ray Magazine and Washingtonian.  We welcome applicants from all majors.  Previous writing experience for a college-level publication is a plus.
