Hinsdalean looking for contributing writers

The Hinsdalean once again is looking for volunteer writers to contribute columns once every seven or eight weeks during the school year for a two-year term.

To apply, send a sample 450-word column to editor Pamela Lannom at [email protected]. Please provide ideas for three additional columns. The ideas don’t need to be extremely detailed, but they are a factor in the selection process.

Applicants should include a name, address and cell number and a few sentences about why they are interesting in writing a column. Student writers, ideally high school seniors, are welcome to apply as well.

These columns, which run on the paper’s opinion pages, are designed to share residents’ personal experiences or opinions on local issues. Individuals interested in writing to get publicity for a business, nonprofit organization, political agenda or other cause should not apply. Elected officials and employees of public bodies are not eligible.

Submissions are due Monday, July 29.
