Become A Daily Editor And Keep Bwog’s Wheels Turning

This could be you

If you stopped by Bwog’s table at the Activities Fair today, you might have heard Zack Abrams, our Social Media Editor, say, “You know those bikes where, like, six people are pedaling together in a circle? Bwog is like that.”

If Bwog is, in fact, a conference bike, then Daily Editors are the wheels that keep that bike moving. They are the very backbone of our organization, the glue that keeps us from spiraling apart in an inevitable heat death of boxed wine and green grapes. If our editorial board all perished in a freak subway accident, we would be sad, but we would move on. If our Daily Editors left us, we would never recover.

The job of a Daily Editor is to manage Bwog one day each week. On that day, the Daily writes a couple of posts (Bwoglines, an announcement, maybe a shortform), edits and schedules several other posts, covers breaking news, and does anything else necessary to keep the site running. Perks include: you become infinitely familiar with WordPress, you learn about campus news as it’s happening, you get an excuse to yell at staff writers, and you write the tags.

If you’re interested, fill out the application below and send it to editors@bwog.com by 11:59 pm on Friday, September 14.  Applications should be submitted in the form of a .PDF document titled “*First Name* App.” Bring any questions you have to our first open meeting this Sunday! Or, if you can’t make the meeting, send your questions to editors@bwog.com.
