PRIME is the Daily Bruin’s quarterly magazine, covering a wide array of topics related to UCLA and Westwood. In the past, we have published investigations on animal experimentation at UCLA and predatory landlords in Westwood, told the stories of student commuters and Westwood's local businesses, and highlighted the team behind UCLA's COVID-19 test vending machines. Some contributors have also written personal columns about topics like growing up with immigrant parents and having family members with chronic illnesses. PRIME stories typically require in-depth reporting, strong writing, and a knack for narrative storytelling. If you're interested in pursuing a career in journalism or longer-form writing, PRIME is a great place to learn more about the Westwood community, make friends in the newsroom, and start building a portfolio of journalism clips. Contributors to the magazine have gone on to work for Variety, Bloomberg, The Hollywood Reporter, Yahoo Finance and Los Angeles Magazine.
If you have a love for storytelling and a drive to uncover untold experiences in our community, please apply to our award winning magazine! Reporting and writing training will be provided, but applicants should present a strong writing skill set in their application.
