Paid positions for Salient ’11 are now filled, but we’re always on the look-out for new contributors. Either flick us an email at registering your interest in one of the below roles, or pop in to see us in our office (Level 3 of the Student Union Building, above VUWSA) any time from 1 Feb.

News Writers

Work with the News Editor to bring comprehensive coverage of student affairs on campus and in wider Wellington. Break stories. Report on what’s going on. Sharpen your writing skills. Cover the 2011 election as it happens, and as it affects students.

    I would like to contribute to Salient as a correspondent for Karori Campus.
    Karori campus certainly needs to up its profile a little.
    VUWSA seems to have swept us under a manky old rug a while back.
    We would like out again now, please.
