The Michigan Daily, Fall 2016
Deadline: Friday, August 26 at midnight
This application is also available as a pdf file.
The Michigan Daily Opinion section is currently seeking cartoonists for the Fall 2016 term. Cartoonists can illustrate cartoons to accompany columns and editorials produced by Opinion staff writers or can create their own biweekly cartoon or comic series. Daily cartoons express some type of opinion or commentary relevant to current events at the University, local, state and national level, or to students generally. Cartoons are a magical place where images and words work together to squeeze moments of humor, wit, and vibrance out of seemingly mundane situations people find themselves in every day. If you think you have the perspective and artistic prowess to make this happen, then this may be the job for you.
The application is due Friday, August 26th at midnight and should be emailed to the 2016 Editorial Page Editors: Claire Bryan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Regan Detwiler (email@example.com).
*Please note: In accepting the job as a Michigan Daily Columnist, you will be required to review, and will become bound by all Michigan Daily bylaws. The bylaws enforce the Michigan Daily’s ethical standards (i.e. preventing the publishing of libelous, malicious or discriminatory content). All columns are subject to review before publication on those standards by the Editorial Page Editors, the Managing Editor and/or the EditorinChief. If content does not align with the standards of the bylaws, per that review, the Daily reserves the right to not publish that content. That being said, the writer’s voice is the top priority on the Opinion section and we will always work with the writer to have content published rather than not.
Thank you for applying to be a cartoonist for The Michigan Daily.
We look forward to hearing all you have to say!
