This is more appropriate for someone who has graduated, but if you have exceptional writing skills with ideas to explore, this may be for you. Being selected would certainly open doors to other opportunities, just due to networking.
Anthropology News is seeking columnists for its Opinion section on www.anthropology-news.org. These volunteers are an integral part of shaping AN’s content and conversation by developing columns that relate to anthropology in its myriad forms.
Columnists write their own essays. There is great opportunity for creativity and fruitful in-depth discussions about the many facets of anthropology. The specific topic will depend on each AN volunteer’s expertise and experience. AN especially encourages columns that address current news and issues.
Opinion Columnists will commit to one year of monthly essays. All columns will be published at anthropology-news.org, with select ones later appearing in print AN. Everything on anthropology-news.org is publicly available for four months, and then available to AAA members through AnthroSource.
The term will be January through December 2014. Columns have a flexible word count, between 600 and 1000 words, and we encourage the use of multimedia content. You will also have the option of publishing additional columns in any given month.
If you are interested in being considered as a columnist and are a current AAA member, email a brief proposal of your column theme and summary of your qualifications to AN Digital Editorial Assistant, Emilia Guevara at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 13, 2013.
