OVERVIEW - Staff writers are a critical component of Nommo, as they provide online and print content for our expansive audience. While Nommo staff writers do not need previous journalistic experience, they should have a strong grasp on the English language and a willingness to learn journalistic and artistic writing skills. Additionally, writers are encouraged to elevate Black stories in their writing and should feel comfortable interviewing (via phone call, Zoom, or in-person interviews) subjects of news writing.
DESCRIPTION & RESPONSIBILITIES - Writing interns deliver well-written, factual, creative, and honest news and writing pieces. They are responsible for submitting to the website at least three times a quarter and each print issue (2-3 per academic year). They must adhere to Nommo and MLA format in print and digital writing. Their work should contain quality grammar and content as well.
Writing Staff is expected to attend any all-staff meetings (twice a quarter) and writing staff meetings as directed by their editors. Nommo is a collaborative effort and all staffers should be effective communicators.
Thank you for your time and effort! We look forward to building a staff of creative and invested individuals for this years’ publication! Email [email protected] with any questions.
