The editorial board represents the editorial voice of the paper. The members of the editorial board meet twice a week to decide the topic, opinion, and tone of staff editorials. A single member is given the duty to pen staff editorials for the entire semester, the rest are expected to contribute edits. Past staff editorials are here.
Columnists write 800 words every other week and generally carry a steady and recognizable theme. A good opinion column should be relevant to Columbia and timely. Past columns are here.
Bloggers publish regular posts on Spectrum once or twice times a week. A good opinion post should be relevant to Columbia and make use of the medium by using multimedia. Past posts are here.
Artists have the option to draw independent editorial cartoons or illustrations that accompany written content. We are transitioning to a primarily digital medium for editorial art this fall, and as such prior experience with Photoshop or Illustrator is preferred but not required.

Questions should be directed to the editorial page editors, Andrea Garcia-Vargas and Lanbo Zhang, at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
