An on-call writer will write about three articles each month. Some of these articles may be assigned; others may be offered to writers on a first come, first serve basis. These articles could range from covering Chaos Day to reviewing a big concert to doing investigative work on the latest faculty senate decision. Being able to conduct good interviews is a critical part of this position. On-call writers may also be called upon to write an unplanned story that breaks suddenly without prior knowledge or planning.
