Staff Editorial: Want to write for The Mac Weekly?

Maybe you pass the stacks of newspapers day after day in the campus center as you go to lunch, or maybe you pick up your copy every Friday afternoon right when it comes off the presses. But do you know what goes into making The Mac Weekly every week? Our staff is offering you the chance to find out.

This semester we hope to bring in new voices—design staff, writers, editors and more. Whatever your interest, we have a section for you: news, sports, opinion, arts, even food and drank (Not sure what that is? Just ask).

We hold weekly interest meetings to discuss plans for the upcoming issue, tossing around ideas and assigning stories. We welcome anyone, whether or not you have been involved with us before and no matter what kind of experience, if any, you have.

Your most important qualification is your interest in participating, even if you do not know exactly how yet. We will help you find your place and show you the ropes for writing and publishing The Mac Weekly.

This semester’s first interest meeting is this Monday, Feb. 3, at 5:00 PM in the Mac Weekly office. This meeting is an opportunity to learn about how you can get involved, tell us what ideas you have, and meet our awesome staff.

Not sure if you want in? The only way to know for sure is to show up and find out. And if you can’t make it, we lay out the paper every Wednesday night in the office starting at 7PM in the basement of 30BigWall (off of the laundry room connecting Wallace to Bigelow). We hope to see you there.
