Do I look scary to anyone? Is my demeanor that of a serial killer? By show of hands, how many people have seen this Sports Editor convert his appetite to the delicacies of human organs? Great.
So why is it so hard for people to approach me about writing an article for the paper?
Listen, the editors of this publication are students like everyone else in SJGC. We eat, sleep and live in J-School. We party hard, sleep in class and wish that we could go home.
The only thing that differentiates us from the rest of the students in this wretched building is that we get paid to know AP Style. And to be honest, I still haven’t quite completely figured that out yet.
People have put some sort of omen over the paper, like we are a cult that you must be accepted into to be a part of the Famuan. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Everybody in here isn’t a part of the cult.
Every editor in this paper has a specific style and purpose for his/her section. And we are more than happy to add any willing person into our family that wants to write.
We won’t bite, or at least I wont. Come in and talk to us, because we need writers as much as writers need editors.
So the next time someone is looking for a way to start writing for the paper and are a bit apprehensive about the idea, send them to the office to experience the cult, I mean culture, for themselves.
