Joining The Bunion Staff is an extremely rewarding opportunity to have fun, laugh constantly, improve your writing/photo/marketing skills, learn how to be a part of a driven, fast-growing organization, and build real accolades and skillsets for your résumé.

If you are interested in facets of The Bunion for which there are not currently openings, email our Editor-in-Chief, Ethan Brown, at email@example.com to find out how you can get involved.
Don’t want the time commitment of a Staff member?
We get it. You don’t love us. No, it’s fine, we get it. Really.
Our Staff positions are very manageable and rewarding with a full class schedule, but there’s plenty of ways to get involved outside of the Staff. Our writers meetings are on Sundays at 12:30PM in CAS 323B and are open to all undergraduate Boston University students. Come anytime and contribute headlines, help write quizzes and special projects, sit in on an article workshop, or come to one of our crash courses on satirical writing, Photoshop, or other fun topics!
Interested in submitting an article for publication?
The Bunion welcomes all undergraduate Boston University students to submit content for publication. The Bunion strongly encourages that interested contributors attend a writer meeting or join our Facebook group chat. Collaboration is an essential component of satirical writing, and The Bunion is much more likely to publish contributions where the headline has been approved by the editors before the article is drafted.
To join the Facebook group chat, inquire about upcoming writer meetings, propose a headline, or submit an article, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. As explained in the Standards of Publication, The Bunion reserves the right to edit, revise, and publish or not publish any article contributions and The Bunion owns all published content, including submitted articles. The Bunion does not accept previously published articles.
Interested in joining the Editorial Staff?
Each semester, The Bunion releases applications for dedicated members to join the Editorial Staff. Editors at The Bunion must be responsible, accountable, flexible, enthusiastic, strong leaders, and willing to take on a large time commitment (as would be the case at any active publication).
The Bunion is not accepting editor applications at this time. If you are interested in an editor position, we encourage that you apply to be a Staff Writer and/or reach out to current editors and offer to assist them with their work.
