We haven’t been able to post enough meta-blog posts this semester, so here’s one.
We’re recruiting again (not that we ever stop because you can join year round) because Wesleying is severely understaffed. We need writers, videographers, interviewers, photographers, Internet addicts, Photoshop fiends, homespun Wes historians, general Wesleyan-student enthusiasts like we’ve never needed them before (like, since 2009).
If you think Wesleying is cool, but more importantly, are motivated to write for us, we’d be happy to have you. In the immortal words of The Great Sheek, “All you need is Internet access, the ability to string sentences together coherently, and an interest in life at Wesleyan as it is, was, and might be.”
Why you should join Wesleying:
- You write stuff and thousands (literally) of people read your stuff.
- The opportunity to interview powerful people.
- Occasional offers of fancy press passes for cool conferences.
- A personal megaphone: shed light on campus issues that are close to home (or not).
- Know everything that’s happening on campus before anybody else.
- Access to the drama-filled amusement ride that is the Wesleying listserv.
- Wesleying alums have gone on to awesome publications and continue to shred it. If you’re interested in journalism at all, this is where it’s at.
As a Wesleying blogger you can be part of Wesleyan’s most frequently read media source, with the potential to shape campus discourse and the ability to keep Wespeople informed and entertained… and procrastinating. Wesleying is as good as whatever its contributors put into it, so let us know what you’ve got.
Do you know or have a lot to say about Weslife? Do you or people you know do cool stuff on/around campus? Do you want to break news as it happens? Do you take sweet campus photos? Do you like to Photoshop things? Are you into Wes music, and can you describe it in words? Are you a human filter for Internet media? Do you know your memes? Are you a news junkie with an eye for things relevant to us at Wes? Do you possess keen wit and/or discerning taste? Do you write good? Does weird/messed up shit happen to you or your friends sometimes; wanna talk about it?
Are you into digging up forgottenpieces of Wes history? Do you know secret things? Do you explore little-known, little-seen parts of campus? Is campus deconstruction second nature after you took Intro Sociology? Do you have more opinions than your friends can bear to listen to? Do u miss wen we used 2 speak LOLspeak? Do you miss yesteryear’sWesleyan weirdness; wanna bring it back/keep it going? Do you think things just aren’t the same as they used to be? Do you want to keep up the kind of content we’ve been posting over the years? Do you have a perspective you think we’re missing, or have been neglecting lately? Are you just REALLY EXCITED TO BE HERE??
Send an email to staff[at]wesleying[dot]org with “Recruitment” in the subject line. Tell us a little about yourself, any blogging experience you have (it’s fine if you don’t), and why you want to join Wesleying. We’ll be in touch.
