Staff Writer – Articles:
Article writers work on the satirical articles we release. Every writer works on one article on a 3-week rotation. They pitch and workshop their headlines the first week, workshop their articles on the second week, and then prepare their articles for publishing on the third week. On the third week, considered your “off week,” you’ll help contribute to a quiz or special project during the actual writer’s meeting.
Article writers also contribute to rush articles, which cover breaking news. These are workshopped in the chat, and then completed and published as soon as possible.
Staff Writer – Quiz/Special Projects:
Quiz staff works on BuzzFeed style quizzes we release weekly. If you want to get a feel for what this looks like, check out ClickHole. Quiz writers pitch quiz ideas, and work on quizzes during the weekly writer’s meetings.
Special projects is a department that covers a lot of miscellaneous one off projects we like to release as a publication. This department covers anything from videos, fake advertisements, songs, podcasts, and website additions. You can see some examples on our site at thebunionpaper.com under the Multimedia tab.
