Bwog Symposium (Colorized)

Do you want to work in a newsroom held together mostly by an internal listserv and snacks from Trader Joe’s? Do you have what it takes to be witty and comical on demand, yet also able to immediately cover breaking news at any moment? Do you want to write news without selling your soul for work study that never materializes? Do you desire journalistic independence from Columbia, so that your writing can escape the university’s (informal) censors?

Well you’re in luck, because Bwog is accepting new Daily Editors for the 2017-2018 school year. As a Daily, you’ll essentially be in charge of the whole site for one day each week, writing and editing articles, scheduling posts, and yelling at lazy staff writers and editors who haven’t finished their pieces yet. It’s a lot of power, and Dailies as such are the cornerstone of the entire Bwog structure. You’ll also be able to put “WordPress” and “basic HTML” on your LinkedIn skills, attend our notorious DWBs, and reenact our favorite LitHum text—Symposium.

The application, which is included below, is due by 11:59 PM on Friday, September 15th; email your apps to editor@bwog.comHave fun, kids.
