Write for Us
Anyone can get published in
The Other Press!
Contact any of our editors directly with your story ideas online or at one of our regular collective meetings. When it comes time to submit your story, please send your article as an MS Word .doc file, and include your full name, title, and subtitle. The weekly deadline for contributor submissions to editors is Thursday at noon for publication the following Tuesday. Letters to the Editor and “time-sensitive” articles (weekend news, sports, and cultural reviews) will be accepted until Saturday at noon (unless other arrangements have been made).
$50 Feature Stories
The Other Press will pay $50 to anyone who writes an original article of roughly 1,200–1,500 words in length that gets published in our “Features” section. Submit story ideas to the Editor-in-Chief at firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting your final piece.
Rewards for Regular Contributors
For every three original articles that get published, contributors receive $50 (feature stories don’t count towards this total). Articles are at least 450 words in length. Contributors can also write capsules, which are shorter 200-350 word articles. Two capsules are equal to one article for contributor pay.
The Other Press holds weekly staff meetings at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays in room 1020 of the New Westminster campus. All those in the Douglas College community are encouraged and welcome!
