Join The Octant!

Please note that sign-ups have closed for editorial and managerial positions. If you would like to join us as contributing reporters, illustrators, photographers, print or web designers, the deadline is Monday 24 Aug 11.59PM.

The Octant is a weekly paper at Yale-NUS College that is completely student-run. We have writers, editors, copy-editors, illustrators, designers, and business and distribution managers.

Commitment to the paper is for a semester, and training will be provided for new writers. No prior journalism experience is required to be a contributing reporter.

Contributing reporters will attend five training sessions and publish three articles to be inducted as Staff Writers. Once you are on staff, you can cover exciting beats, work on more in-depth and breaking news stories and are eligible for a place on the Editorial Board. Indicate your interest on this form and we will contact you about training.

Those applying for other positions should submit 2 writing samples or 1 relevant portfolio piece to yncoctant@gmail.com. You will then receive an email to arrange a coffee chat with the Chief/Managing Editor.
