The Springfield Times is a small weekly newspaper looking for contributors to cover topics ranging from high school sports, city government, local events, arts and entertainment and more, focusing exclusively on Springfield and Thurston and sometimes Marcola, Lowell and Pleasant Hill.
The number of hours per week does vary, but we have some flexibility to work around student schedules. Contributors are expected to write one story per week and try to take photos to go with each story (they don't need to be experets, but should be willing to work to gain experience).
We value clear, concise writing with attention to detail and focus on the Springfield community. Students should have at least one reporting class and familiarity with AP style and be able to meet deadlines.
Those interested can send writing samples to email@example.com.
