Editor’s notebook: Openings for columnists and layout editors in TKS

This week in TKS, we’ve started producing podcasts and more videos; we’re hiring a new Layout Editor; we’re looking for more columnists and our readership survey is still live.

In multimedia news, Editors-In-Chief Kate Mishkin and Casey Mendoza were the stars of the new TKS Weekly Podcast. They discussed last week’s publication night, read the campus safety log, and published exclusive sound bites from interviews. Check out our website and Soundcloud (theknoxstudent) to give it a listen.

Head to our YouTube page (The Knox Student) to watch our Weekly Read Throughs and Prairie Fire Players of the Week. Subscribe if you want to stay up to date with all of our multimedia endeavors.

Think you have an eye for design? Want to learn how to use Adobe InDesign? TKS is looking for a Layout Editor to help design pages for the newspaper. Experience is helpful, but not necessary.

Contact Kate Mishkin ( or find the position in the Job Bank for more information.

TKS is also looking for more columnists for our Discourse section. Write about any topic you’re interested in. Draw cartoons to add variety. We’re welcome to new ideas and new forms of content.

If you have any more comments or suggestions for us, please take our Readership Survey, which can be found on our Facebook page.
