University Press Club is the only organization on campus to offer you the chance to work for real newspapers and magazines, to get paid for your writing, and to make connections with the “who’s who” of the journalism world.
This week, we’re kicking off our annual Candidates Period, a three-month application process to join the club. During Candidates Period, we’ll teach you the basics of writing, reporting, and journalism ethics, and you’ll work one-on-one with our members to develop your writing skills.
To learn more about the Press Club and the Candidates Period, come to one of our two Open Houses in Frist 205:
Tuesday, Oct. 2 — 4:30 pm
Thursday, Oct. 4 — 4:30 pm
In addition, on Tuesday, Oct. 2, right after our first open house at 5:30 pm, Mike Allen of Politico will speak about Politics in the Age of New Media. The event is located in McCormick 101.
If you have any questions or are interested in applying for the Press Club but cannot attend an information session, please e-mail us at pressclb@.
Candidates Period is open to freshmen and sophomores. No prior journalism experience is required! We’ll teach you everything you need to know over the course of the Candidates Period.
