Winter 2017 Semester Elections: January 31st
Who are we?
We are Bandersnatch, the entirely student run newspaper!
What do we do?
Surprise! We publish a newspaper! Every second week, on Wednesday, we publish a new issue of the paper. As mentioned before, the paper is entirely student-run! The best part is that it is completely free for you, the reader! No subscription fees! No hidden costs! No leases, no loans, no finances!
Also, we take contributions (articles/poetry/art) from students like you and are always looking for new writers!
Looking for new writers? But what if I’m not a good writer?
That’s fine! Nobody writes perfectly. For that reason, we’re always looking for people to do copy editing! A Copy Editor is anyone who reads, reviews and revises articles during production. We, editors, do our absolute best to ensure the paper is of the highest quality, but mistakes and oversights can happen. That’s why we need you!
Want to take an active part in our club?
We will be hosting elections where we are looking for new Campus Life and Science Editors, an Assistant-Production Manager (to eventually replace the Production Manager) and an Office Manager. Editors are in charge of placing each section, finding writers who would be interested in writing for the paper, finding content for their section, and copy editing (reading, reviewing and revising). The Production Manager is responsible for creating the templates and making sure each page is ready for Editors to place their sections.
When are the elections taking place?
On January 31st at 5:30, we will be having elections for the following positions: Office Manager, Assistant-Production Manager, Science Editor and Campus Life Editor! Check Omnivox regularly for details as we get closer to that date, or MIO Dylan Masson, the Editor-In-Chief, for information and/or if you would like to be put onto our mailing list.
What if you don’t want so much responsibility?
We’re always looking for Contributors, Staff Writers and Copy Editors! Contributors send in content to the paper. Message an Editor if you’re interested in submitting a piece! Staff Writers are essentially contributors; however, they have contributed on more than two seperate issues and have been to atleast two of our meetings. One of the many perks of being a Staff Writer is that it looks great on a CV! You also get to brag to your friends about it.
Have any questions or want to know how to contact us?
The easiest way to get in touch with us is by sending us an MIO directly. You can find the Editor you’re looking for by locating the name at the top of the section you’d like to submit to. Want to write for news? MIO the news editor! Is there no editor at the moment? MIO Dylan Masson, the Editor-in-Chief.
One final thing: what’s a Bandersnatch?
A Bandersnatch is a fictional creature created by Lewis Carroll, author of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. Its sequel “Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There” was where the Bandersnatch was first introduced! It was described as having “frumious jaws” and a long neck. RAWR!
