mindy gregory – news editor
Welcome to our regularly scheduled news pitch list! The world outdoors is looking and smelling (oh!) so September and I hope you are making time to enjoy it. As our calendars fill up it’s easy to get lost in assignments (due, due, due), so we work to make it extra easy for students to stay updated on newsworthy topics. There is a lot happening this month that not only touches on the lives of students now but will change our future. Check below if you’re looking to contribute to the news section this week as there are a few new pitches plus some series options that we would love to add your piece to! You can take pitches in the directions suggested or you can pitch your own angle and we’ll see if your idea fits our publication.
If you are excited about a topic that I haven’t listed, please feel free to pitch your own ideas. Include your name, length of story (half page: 550-750 words, full page: 950-1,150), and angles you would like to take when you email to claim one of these ideas or to pitch one of your own. If you have an idea and don’t know how to execute it, we would be happy to help network, recommend sources and resources, and aid in the writing process to help you build the strongest story possible.
To claim one of the pitches below or to pitch your own story, email email@example.com. Article drafts will be due by the end of the day on Saturday, September 23, 2023.
