From the Editor: New Year, New Look

New year, new staff, new look.

By Emily Smith, Editor-in-Chief

This year, the Inkwell newspaper is starting fresh. With over half of our editorial board comprised of new members, the weekly publication is buzzing with fresh ideas and excitement.

The main objective this year is to be more interactive with students and get them more involved in various aspects of the paper. Writers, reporters, photographers, and artists are always needed and there is something for people of all majors to participate in. Contributors are paid $10 pirate cash for any article or picture of theirs that is published. Opportunities await at every writers meeting which are held in the Memorial College Center building Rm. 202. Meetings are held on Wednesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and then again at 5 p.m. Here, the news, arts and entertainment, sports and photo editors discuss ideas for their sections and assign stories to willing writers. Editors are always open to story suggestions from writers.

The Inkwell’s social media presence is already more prominent than in the past with active Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat accounts. These platforms make the production of the paper a more interactive and personal experience for its followers, allowing students to keep up with daily campus happenings with ease.

Finally, the Inkwell staff is elated to present the large, red distribution kiosks this year. These new boxes for the papers allow us to be more aesthetically pleasing, and even offer advertising. This year, we of the editorial board look forward to bringing you the latest news from campus and beyond.
