Smile Politiely Seeks Opinion Writers

The Opinion section has two new editors at the helm and we're looking to build the stable of writers contributing specifically to this section. We know you have thoughts about the Champaign-Urbana community, so why not voice them here as an engaged community member? Here's how to do it.

Please send us an email at with the subject "Opinion Writer" telling us about yourself, why you're interested in contributing, and all that good stuff. Since we're a hyper local magazine, applicants must have a grasp on local culture — and you don't have to be the best writer in the world. We're not either.
