Okay, okay. We know it's still summer. You're at the beach, or the cottage, or trying to complete that summer internship. But we're putting this out there anyways!
The fall 2022 semester is fast approaching, and the 2022-2023 New Wave team is looking to secure all masthead positions by early September.
If you're a writer, editor, organizer-extraordinaire (or maybe just a teeny weeny bit bossy), we would love your help in creating one of the best years for New Wave yet!
Below are descriptions of the masthead positions currently available for hire. The applications for masthead positions will be open until September 10th, and we ask that you complete the google form we've included at the bottom of this post.
We look forward to working with you!
