A few good writers needed

Tidings seeks four student columnists from West Linn


The Tidings is seeking four high school columnists from West Linn for the 2013-14 school year.

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

Columnists should use their writing to provide a window into the high school, offering insight into what is going on in the schools as well as student perspective on local and national events. They are expected to love writing and have a distinct point of view to express.

To apply for one of these unpaid positions, send your name, year in school, which school you are attending, address, telephone number and a short biography — emphasis on short — to the Tidings. 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.

Interviews for finalists for student columnist positions will be held later this summer. Send applications via email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
