Excellent! I'm very excited that you want to write a column. Rock on.
To let you know, we need to come up with a theme for your column and a column title. Possible a headshot of yourself, if you have one and want to do that. And, basically you just have to commit to writing it every week for a semester. If things in your academic world become a little too tough or stressful, no problem. We can work that out-- I've been there. So, taking a week off, if you absolutely have to, is not a problem.
Also, you'll mainly be dealing with my Assistant Op/Ed Editor, in terms of revising/editing your articles. I'm still interviewing candidates for the position, but I just wanted you to be updated, since you're now a part of the Op/Ed team! :) I will still be there, if you need me, but working more now on layout of the section.
FYI: The reason why I've asked you to write for Op/Ed is because I've heard really good things about your writing/thinking, and I think you would contribute immensely to the section. Good writers are scarce to the Sophian-- as I'm sure you already know. Heh. On the other hand, I probably won't have my column this year, because I'm going to spend more time on editing-- and I'm applying to law school. :)
Welcome aboard! I know nothing about you, though. What are you majoring in? What are you doing this summer? You're an '05, right? Oh, and let me know if you would like to write for the Back to School Issue. [The Back to School issue is usually geared toward the incoming 1st years, so we'll probably keep it kind of low-key.]
Have a good day-- and I hope to hear from you soon! -Cate
