    Oct. 14, 2020, noon

PRIME is a quarterly magazine that covers a wide array of topics related to UCLA and Westwood such as students with dependents, essential student workers in the era of COVID-19, students’ personal narratives about studying abroad, and the 'can I ask you a question' guy on Bruinwalk. Our stories typically require in-depth reporting, strong writing, and a knack for narrative storytelling to produce engaging pieces of journalism for our magazine. If you're interested in perusing 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 get 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 knack 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 applications.

Applicants can be from any major at UCLA.
