The mission of Post-Crescent Media's Views content is to provide a forum for Fox Cities residents to voice their opinions.
Ten years ago, we took a major step in that mission by forming a panel of Community Columnists. Thanks to the great group of writers we've had in that time, the Community Columnists have been a big success, based on the response we've received from readers.
Now, we're looking to add to the panel of columnists for 2014. Our goal is to put together a group of local residents who are engaging writers and will provide a broad background of life experiences and perspectives. Our columnists will write about topics of their choosing, but we prefer they bring a local perspective to an issue.
Each person will write five columns, once about every two months. There's no pay involved, but it's a great opportunity to have your voice heard.
If you're interested, send us a letter of application that tells us something about yourself and why you'd like to participate. We'd also like you to send us two sample columns of no more than 700 words.
We'll be taking applications and sample columns through Nov. 11. You can send yours to Larry Gallup, The Post-Crescent, P.O. Box 59, Appleton, WI 54912, or you can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions, call 920-993-1000, ext. 375.
