oSTEM Medium Writer's Interest Form
Thank you for your interest in becoming a writer for our new oSTEM Medium publication!
We hope that we can create a welcoming place to discuss ideas that are important to us and create content that connects and starts conversations with oSTEM members and beyond.
Here is what you can expect to be required of you:
- attend weekly meetings lasting around an hour where we brainstorm, review progress, and communicate tasks for the week
- give feedback and accept constructive feedback from other writers
- work independently on your own articles at a steady pace
Working independently can take the form of:
- independently brainstorming
- online research
- collecting and interpreting data (writing surveys for oSTEM members, talking to oSTEM members or professors about their experiences)
- going to oSTEM events and documenting happenings
- editing and formatting articles
After filling out this form, you will be contacted and we will set up a time to meet and get to know more about each other and what being on the committee will be like.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at
