West Linn Tidings seeking student columnists
The West Linn Tidings is seeking four student columnists from West Linn High School for the 2016-2017 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 their high school, 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 one of these positions, send your name, year in school, address, telephone number and a short biography to the Tidings.
Please also submit a sample column (about 550 words) on a subject or issue of your choice, as well as two other ideas you could foresee writing about in the future. Samples may be printed in the Tidings as guest columns over the summer.
Interviews for finalists for student columnist positions will be held this summer.
