Did you miss us?
We’ve briefly woken up from our
spring and summer hiatus (a.k.a. our office job) just in time for the back to school rush, all in the hopes of finding a new editor who will bring IvyGate back to its former glory. It’s a pretty fun time running this site – you’ll hear and write about some inspiring people, debate rumors of bodily injury, and endlessly shit on Dartmouth.
While it’s definitely helpful as an editor to know Ivy League students and be familiar with the schools, it’s not necessary to be an Ivy Leaguer yourself. And while past writers for IvyGate have shared a sharp, smart voice that’s just serious enough, there is no need for you, potential leader, to have had professional editing experience. The most important factor to being a successful editor here is the willingness to reach out and discover potential leads from all sorts of sources: college blogs, breaking media coverage, hungover text exchanges with your friend at Cornell. If you can spin a story that’s both snarky and investigative out of a third-hand rumor, you’re perfect for IvyGate. Interested? Possibly interested? Not really sure, but still reading? Give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can guarantee, if nothing else, global fame.
