Any student at Durham can be part of Palatinate. Whether you’re interested in writing, reporting, photography, illustration or design, there’s something for you. There are three main ways to get involved:
- Pitch your ideas via email to the relevant section editor. If you have an idea for a story or piece, send an email to the editor of the section in which you think it may fit. If you’re not sure which section is most appropriate, email email@example.com.
- Write a story from a content call. Editors paste regular content calls on their section Facebook contributors pages, where students can request to write up ideas from a list.
- Apply for an editorial position. Section editors are appointed on a rolling basis, and vacancies are advertised on our social media platforms. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to apply.
Getting involved in Palatinate requires no prior experience of journalism, and full training is provided by our editorial board. Whatever your skills or interests, we look forward to hearing from you. To get an idea of the sort of content we run, explore our website or pick up a copy of the paper from college, the Bill Bryson Library or Elvet Riverside.
Below is a list of every section’s email address and a link to their contributor group. Please note that, due to the unique nature of News, there is no contributor group for the section. If you know of something newsworthy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
