West Side Story

Join a publication staff — you won’t regret it!

Do you want to be a part of the Trojan Epic or West Side Story? There are two ways you can join:

1. Register for Foundations of Journalism for next year. You will learn everything you need to know to join a publication. At the end of the year, you will decide what aspect(s) of journalism you enjoy the most and apply for that job position on the Trojan Epic Yearbook or West Side Story (or both!).
OR
2. Although it’s rare and we give priority to students who take FoJ — sometimes experienced artists, videographers, photographers, business students, web programmers, etc. can skip Foundations and join the yearbook or WSS staff right away. To be considered, submit a portfolio of relevant work to [email protected]

Ready to apply?

Fill out the application and submit an online portfolio here. Applications are due March 25 for returning staff and May 13 for new applicants (including current FOJ students).
