Write for UsAt The Sting there are a wide variety of potential articles for you to write. Generally these articles fall under a few large categories such as:
News: This can include anything from a news report on campus life, to a feature article about campus events, or even a story commenting on a piece of regional, national, or international news. We need all sorts of news articles at a campus newspaper like The Sting, so don’t be afraid to submit an article or pitch an idea to one of our editors!
Entertainment: For the purposes of our paper this is a broad category of articles that pertains to many areas of entertainment. This may include reviews or articles about movies, television, video games, restaurants, concerts, and albums.
Opinion: This section includes editorials, personal essays, and other feature articles that are focused on opinion (and not necessarily the opinion of the newspaper). It’s also commonly a space for students to discuss political issues or to comment on campus policy. If you’re interested in getting your opinion out there, this is the place to do it!
