Review seeks student columnists for 08-09 school year


The Lake Oswego Review is seeking four high school columnists from Lake Oswego High School, Lakeridge High School, Riverdale High School and Westside Christian High School (preferably one from each) for the 2008-2009 school year.

Columnists will write columns on a rotating schedule - about once every three to four weeks. Columnists are expected to generate original column ideas and adhere to strict deadlines.

Columnists should use their writing to provide a window into the high schools, offering insight into what is going on in the schools as well as student perspective on local and national events.

Columnists are not paid. They are expected to love writing and have a distinct point of view to express.

To apply for these positions, send your name, year in school, which school you are attending, address, telephone number and a short biography (emphasis on short) to the Review. Please also submit a sample column (about 550 words) on a subject or issue of your choice as well as a list of two other ideas you could foresee writing about in the future.

Interviews for selected applicants will be held in late August.

If possible, please send applications via email to: Rebecca Mayer, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Applications can also be sent to: Lake Oswego Review, P.O. Box 548, Lake Oswego, OR, 97034.
