Writers wanted for community columnists

The Tribune Chronicle is seeking four Trumbull County residents to serve as community columnists on the Opinion page.

Everyone – young and old, men and women, white collar and blue collar, newcomers and old timers, all ethnic groups, all races, everyone – is encouraged to submit material for consideration. Columnists are paid $25 for each submission.

The requirement is a willingness to commit to writing 26 columns, one every two weeks, on local topics, from July through June 2015.

Candidates also must be good writers with something to say about what is happening in Trumbull County, including any of its communities. These are opinion pieces. These are not just letters to the editor.

To be considered, send three writing samples, a letter of introduction with an idea about what topics might be offered, and a brief resume or curriculum vitae. Mail material to Tribune Chronicle – Opinion Page Editor, 240 Franklin St. S.E. Warren, 44482, or email material to editorial@tribtoday.com. Put ”community columnist” in the subject line. The deadline to submit material for consideration is May 2.
