Writing 

The Daily is a completely student-run paper. All photographers, writers, designers, and editors who contribute to the paper are UW students. The paper provides a professional learning environment for aspiring journalists. It is not affiliated with the UW Communications Department and, therefore, has contributors from a variety of majors on campus.

Prospective writers are required to attend weekly meetings for one quarter that will be taught by the development editor. In these classes, prospective writers will learn the basics of reporting, how the newsroom works, and journalism ethics. Further, prospective writers will be required to write three articles while in development.

Photography 

This application is for anyone interested in becoming a photojournalist for The Daily. We are looking for passionate photographers interested in getting more experience photographing what goes on at our university. Our goal is to bring the university –– every nook and cranny –– to everyone, just by picking up one of our papers. If you believe you can tell the daily story of our school (no pun intended), then this is the right place for you. However, before you can start working for us, you need to take the mandatory, once a week introductory class.

Design

Designers are hired on a rolling basis. Designers perform two jobs: design and layout The Daily's weekly print paper and create other visual design elements on request for print and online. Layout "shifts" would be once a week for a few hours in the evening on press date. Designing other elements is on your own time with assigned deadlines.

Experience with InDesign and InCopy CC is preferable but not a deal breaker for those ready to learn on the job. To apply, email the design editors with a copy of your resume and a portfolio with samples of previous design experience. A short in-person interview will also follow.
