Section editors are responsible for the content and layout of their individual sections. The time commitment for a section editor is roughly 5-10 hours a week, including Wednesday layout nights. Section editors will receive a $300 stipend per semester.
Duties include:- generating story ideas- laying out their individual pages- assigning stories to staff writers- working with writers to improve content and style before publication- addressing content issues raised by copy editors on articles in their sections- remaining available on layout nights until their pages have been approved twice- writing articles- attending training sessions during the course of the academic year
Section editors are hired for a full academic year. Exceptions for off-campus interims, semesters abroad or graduating early are sometimes granted by Chimes leadership.
