Blog for The Chicago Maroon!

Welcome to the new blog section of The Chicago Maroon, the independent student newspaper of the University of Chicago. As we continue to venture into the virtual annals of modern journalism, we would like to extend an invitation to any U of C student interested in blogging for the website.

Although no writing experience is required, candidates should send an unpublished sample blog post to along with a brief statement of interest explaining why you would like to write for the blog section. E-mails should be titled "Maroon Blog Application – (your name)" and should include any previous writing samples and a resume if available. We look for students with exemplary writing skills, a knack for reporting, and a specialized interest in an aspect of campus life. Along with having your writing featured on the Maroon's home page, bloggers will have the opportunity to join the Maroon as a staff member and be considered for editorial openings.

Blogging applications for fall quarter will be accepted until Sunday, October 9 at midnight.

Best of luck,

The Editorial Board
