The Peak‘s columnists get guaranteed space in the paper on alternating weeks for one semester, and are paid $200 at the end of their term. Two columnists will be elected per semester; the one with the higher total of votes will decide whether to write a series of six or seven pieces, and the lower total will get the other set of spaces.
To nominate yourself for a Fall 2013 column, you must be a registered student of SFU in that semester, and you must fill out either the form below or a paper form in the Peak office, MBC 2900. Columnist applicants will have the opportunity to make a one minute pitch at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17 at the Peak offices, and may face questions. Voting will then proceed until 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 24. Anyone who has been published in at least two issues during the Summer 2013 semester is eligible to vote, and will be contacted by election officers with their ballot.
