Want to write for The Independent?
Friday 02 October 2009
The Independent wants to hear from fresh thinking, thought-provoking and inquisitive students. More than that, we want you to write for us.
So become a regular writer for the Independent by writing a blog for us. You can write on whatever you like, but we particularly want to hear from you on anything relevant to student life. The best authors will be published on the independent.co.uk website, and the best articles will be re-printed in the newspaper
This is your chance to hone your journalistic skills, with the added plus of the possibility of being published in a national newspaper before you've even graduated.
There is also the opportunity to come and work at The Independent next summer. Those students who are published in the paper will be considered for this opportunity, decided ultimately by a panel of editorial staff based on their submitted articles. One winner will get the unique experience of discovering what it is like to work across all departments on a national newspaper.
To submit an article for consideration, register for an Independent Minds account and post your article in a blog. And when you have set up your blog (and don't tinker with the design, it's not big or clever), email your url to firstname.lastname@example.org with STUDENT BLOGS as the subject for consideration to be added to the Independent site.
