Write For Us

Want a job at the newspaper?

The Blue and White is currently looking for staff writers. Being a staff writer includes writing 2-3 pieces a month. To become a Blue and White writer you must be in eighth grade or older. Current positions include performing arts writer, dorm writer, spiritual life writer, sports writer, student life writer, and global issues writer. If you are interested please email us at bw@lca.edu.

The process of writing for us:

  1. Pitch your article idea to a division head or one of the editors. It can be as simple as knowing the general topic of what you would like to say or having a full outline and idea in mind. Regardless, you should pitch the idea first to make sure the editors are on board with it. You can then begin to write the article itself.
  2. Once you have decided upon a submission type and category, email your work to bw@lca.edu and include the category the post best falls under.
  3. The editor will get back to you within typically one week, no more than two weeks after the date of submission. He/she will either suggest that edits be made or confirm that your post will be published. You should see the post published within a few days. Since it is a guest post, your name will be listed at the front of the article as the author.

The Blue and White accepts submissions from all LCA students, but those must follow the contributor guidelines available under The Blue and White Regulations.

We currently accept videos, photos, and written articles. We do not currently accept creative writing to publish, but we suggest submitting to Cadence instead.
