Paper seeks contributing columnists

Hinsdale residents interested in applying to be a contributing columnist for The Hinsdalean need to do so by 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 29.

Applicants should email a 450-word sample column along with ideas for three additional columns (with a sentence or two about each) to editor Pam Lannom at [email protected].

They should include an address and daytime phone and a few paragraphs explaining who they are and why they are interested in writing a column.

Elected officials, employees of public bodies and those looking to pursue a particular agenda (promoting a business, nonprofit, political or religious cause, etc.) are not eligible.

There are three openings for contributors, including at least one student. Columnists will be asked to write a column once every seven or eight weeks for one to two years. The position is not paid.
