It’s the beginning of the new quarter, and that means The Daily, the UW’s award-winning student newspaper, is now hiring!
The Daily is a completely student-run paper and provides a professional learning environment for aspiring journalists, as well as students interested in building writing skills and learning more about the UW community. The Daily also provides unique opportunities and privileges to speak with experts and professionals in nearly every industry, including doctors and researchers at UW Medicine, elected officials, and artists and authors that come to the UW.
It is not affiliated with the UW Communications Department and has contributors from a variety of majors on campus. The Daily tries to host a diverse staff from a range of majors and backgrounds, so we encourage all interested students to apply.
Prospective writers are required to attend weekly meetings that will be taught by the development editors, various other section editors at The Daily, and journalism professionals. In these classes, prospective writers will learn the basics of reporting, how the newsroom works, and journalism ethics.
