Write for The North Wind: Take advantage of our platform

We need writers here at The North Wind. We want to express and share a dilemma you might be facing and an opportunity to overcome it.
In today’s world, it’s very easy to have an opposing viewpoint as someone sitting right next to us.

We want to say something, but we don’t know how. We don’t want to start a debate, but sometimes words can easily be twisted and we teach ourselves unconsciously to not speak up again.

This Friday at 2 p.m., located in 301 Gries Hall, we will be hosting an interest meeting with pizza for anyone that wants to overcome this obstacle.
As we continue to grow and learn new things with each class on campus, we meet new people and form new opinions. It’s difficult to express an opposing viewpoint and it’s easy to jeopardize relationships because of this. It’s intimidating.

Fortunately, one thing that makes this country we live in so special is our right to free speech. Sadly, not enough are looking to outlets like this publication as a means to practice this right, vocalize their opinion or stand by something they believe in. Is it perhaps no one knows how simple it can be?

It’s all about communication and reaching out. Come talk to us. It’s here you can pitch stories and share ideas. Our platform is available to over 6,000 students, all invited to practice what they want to say by writing or photography.

For an example, if you want to write an opinion column because of something you’ve been wanting to get off your chest, form a claim and provide evidence to support your reasoning.

Say you want to write a feature story or a sports story because you’re interested in something on campus or in the Marquette community, come see us and we can make something work.

It can be any section, any story, but the first step is to ask. See what’s available to you and take advantage of a platform such as this one to build your future.

After that, consider the list below and contact the corresponding editor that matches your style and wants. The opportunities here are endless and we can’t express enough how important local news is.
