Staff writers work closely with senior editors to produce two 5+ page original papers each semester (or 1 original 5+ research paper AND an additional interview/blog article). Each writer is paired with a senior editor, with whom they will collaborate often throughout the writing process, from topic selection to research to final edits. Staff writers’ pieces are given special consideration for publication in CJLPP print editions and will be considered for a $50 cash prize each semester.

Attends all full staff meetings, which are held every other week, and ad-hoc one-on-one meetings with senior editors.

Time commitment: varies by writer, but usually about 3 hours per week.

Required application materials: resume, writing sample at least 5 double-spaced pages in length, and a brief description of what topics you may be interested in writing about.
