Join Anchors Away

Join our staff

Students interested in joining the staff of the award-winning East Carolinian or our top-notch Magazine team can do so through the Student Publication Candidate Program. This is a semester-long, once-a-week training session for prospective staff members. Participants in the Candidate program meet for one hour weekly.

Students in the program take part in essential lessons on best practices in student journalism, including effective interviewing techniques, media law, multimedia reporting and foundational principles of creative and long-form writing. Successful candidates graduate out of the program to become writers and reporters. Eventually, they can go on to become part of the management for their respective divisions.

For more information on the program, contact adviser Cherie Speller at spellerch16@ecu.edu.
