Join Us

Welcome to The Guilfordian, the historic student-run independent newspaper at Guilford College. Since 1914, our goal has been to provide accurate, comprehensive, and inclusive information to our campus and beyond. We’re looking for driven and community-oriented journalists to join our award-winning team!



Interested in writing for us? Write for sections like News, World & Nation, Social Justice, Opinion, Features and Sports!

There’s no experience required to become a writer! All you need is interest! You can attend our weekly pitch meetings to meet our staff and sign up for a story. 


Section Editors: 

Section editors are responsible for preliminary edits to stories within their respective sections, as well as furnishing pitches for our weekly publications for writers to choose from. 

Section editors should be honest and communicative with their writers and have a good base of knowledge for their section. They oversee the stories in their sections and are expected to be involved throughout the publication process. 


Editor in Chief: 

The Editor in Chief is mainly expected to supervise and guide the editorial board, as well as train staff, conduct final editing and story-approval, and represent The Guilfordian in administrative and community settings. 

Characteristics of an effective Editor in Chief include strong leadership skills, open-mindedness, passion and commitment to the paper, as well as problem-solving skills. 



Staff Photographers are responsible for taking photographs to correlate with upcoming stories, photoshopping images for stories, and locating photos for editors to use. 


Social Media Manager: 

The Social Media Manager would conduct promotional campaigns via our social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. They’d also be charged with overseeing analytics and outreach, as well as advertising our publications and events. 

They should be familiar with technology and social media platform usage, and be friendly and personable. 


Podcast Contributors: 

We’re looking for podcast hosts! The Guilfordian podcast airs live Wednesdays from 5-6pm at 90.9 on WQFS. 


Executive Copy Editors / Additional Copy Editors:

Copy editors are involved in the fact-checking and editing process. Instead of editing content, copy editors are responsible for ensuring that stories comply with AP style and grammatical accuracy, and they also manage fact-checking. 

Copy editors should be detail-oriented, organized, and skilled with grammatical and style-based editorial needs.
