JOIN THE INKWELL STAFF
Official staff members (those who register for a credit) are primarily gatekeepers: editors, designers, publishers. They exist to feature and encourage the production of creative work on campus. They may occasionally produce content for the website, though this is not their primary function.
1 credit is available to staff members who commit to a full semester.
All students who wish to officially join Inkwell’s staff for credit should apply. Editors are free to continue in their role from year to year with adviser consent. Students serving as editors are typically expected to fill that role for a full academic year. General Staff positions can be limited to a semester.
When a role is vacated, the role is listed as “Open” and other students may apply for that role.
Application for an editor position typically happens the semester prior to the student taking on that role (typically, spring semester in April or May). Decisions are made shortly after the posted deadline, at which point selected students will be given permission to register for the credit.
To apply for an editorial position, please send us:
- a cover letter indicating (1) your background in writing and/or publishing, (2) why you’re interested in working with Inkwell, and (3) which position(s) you’d be interested in filling, and (4) any classes you’ve taken relevant to the position you’d like to fill
- a short sample of your work. This can be writing or design work, depending on the position(s) you’re applying for. Preference for editor roles is given to those who have previously been part of Inkwell’s general staff.
All applications can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Staff Application.”
