The UBC English Students’ Association (ESA) is now accepting applications for bloggers for the upcoming academic year. As an ESA blogger, you will have the opportunity to regularly let your snarling wit and opinion be heard by being published periodically on the UBC ESA blog. If you have a passion for (or a very strong opinion of) any and all things English, we encourage you to apply. All undergraduate students of all backgrounds are accepted; this is a great opportunity to get published and involved!
Here is a basic description of the blogger position:
You will be published on http://www.ubcenglish.com. As a blogger, you will receive a WordPress login with the role as Contributor. The ESA blogger will establish a basic posting schedule with the Blog Manager; this schedule will serve as a guideline and is flexible. The ESA blogger will also keep to a standardized style while creating posts for the blog. This includes but is not limited to: Canadian spelling, numbers (1-10, spelled eleven, twelve, thirteen etc. onwards), and the Oxford comma. Proper citations where necessary are a must, akin to an academic essay.
