Last year, for one weekend in November, we turned mentalfloss.com over to our college-going readers for a little thing we called College Weekend. These college students were eager and talented and willing to work for a few bucks. And guess what: We're doing it again, on December 27 and 28!
If you'd like to participate, send me your best ideas by Friday, December 6. Here are some other important details:
1. Be currently enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student. *2. Dream up three brilliant story ideas. We're looking for lists or Big Questions (or quizzes). *3. Email those ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "College Weekend." We just want a headline and a few sentences explaining the story or quiz. Please don't write the whole thing and submit it before we decide it's something we like. Also include a link to something you've written that's online. Anything you're proud of. *4. If you're one of the lucky ones whose story idea we accept, we'll pay you $50. You'll write your story. We'll edit and post it under your byline. You forward the link around campus and to your parents' friends.
So, go think about what you'd like to write and we look forward to your pitches!
