General Interest Meeting

Find out how to become a paid contributor to The Stand

The Stand will offer two General Interest meetings at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 14, and again at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 17.

These free sessions will be held at the South Side Communication Center located at 2331 S. Salina St. Each session will provide an opportunity to submit story ideas, ask questions and learn how to become a paid contributor.

We are always looking for fresh ideas and new writers.

During these meetings we will update residents about The South Side Newspaper Project, hear story ideas and share how residents can be paid to write for The Stand. The mission of The South Side Newspaper Project has always been to act as the voice of the community in an effort to start a community conversation. For this, we invite residents to share their stories.

You may attend our general interest meeting and simply share a story idea or we welcome you to submit your own written piece. For any community member who contributes an article that is published, we pay $25 and we will help you with composition and editing.

If you want to learn more about the paper and how you can participate, plan to attend.

Our goal is to have a positive impact on the community by introducing youth and residents to opportunities in journalism while also helping S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications college journalism students gain essential skills needed in their future fields.
