The Odyssey is a multimedia news source at UW- L and we are currently hiring writers. This is a great opportunity to expand your writing skills or gain job experience. If you have not heard of us, you can check us out here:
The Odyssey provides a platform for the voices of our generation. We give you the freedom to use your evolving opinions to write about issues that matter to you and then share them with a national audience. The Odyssey maintains an average of 100,000 reads per campus, garnering 8+ million reads per month nationally.
We are still growing at La Crosse and we would love for you to join our team! We want to have a variety of students who are passionate about having their voices heard. The Odyssey has articles from schools around the country, and we would love to have UW-L be a regularly viral school.
At The Odyssey you submit at least 1 article a week on a topic of your choice. This can be an article on news, entertainment, college life or your opinion or experiences. While the positions are not paid, we offer incentives such as $20 to the student to get the most article shares that week. We also let students have the liberty to write about a topic of their choice. This is a great chance to be heard and produce writing for your portfolio as we currently get more online views than People, Rolling Stone, and USA Today!
