The State Press accepts applications for all editor and staff positions at the end of each semester. We continue hiring staff throughout the semester.

Apply to be an editor: Apply here.
The State Press accepts applications for all editor and staff positions at the end of each semester. Section editors are paid and will work three days per week. We are currently hiring for the Fall 2022 editor positions, and applications will be due April 10. All applicants will be required to sign up for a 30-minute interview slot during the week of April 11-15. Questions? Email email@example.com.
Freelance & JMC 301/345 Submissions: Pitch us your JMC 301 or freelance story here.
We've all been there, and we're here to help. The State Press accepts pitches from JMC301 students, as well as freelance writers, on a regular basis. However, we do hold freelancers to the same standards as our own reporters — therefore, all pitches must have a strong, relevant ASU angle, multimedia elements, three sources and in-person edits. SP encourages freelancers and 301 students to pitch us their stories early ... and not to wait until the last week of school to fulfill all six publication requirements. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Letters to the Editor:
The State Press welcomes outside opinions. If you would like to contribute, email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions must be under 500 words, contain your ASU affiliation and link to any facts or research you cite. Anonymity will not be granted.
Non-editorial Positions: Apply here.
