Welcome to the fifth volume of Frankly Speaking, Olin’s student-run, monthly newspaper.
The ongoing mission of Frankly Speaking is to foster communication between students, faculty, staff, the greater Olin community, and beyond, through publishing many types of content created by anyone with a desire to be printed.
Frankly Speaking has been publishing monthly issues of the paper since Fall 2010, but we need your help to continue publishing. First and foremost, a paper cannot be published without content, and we rely primarily on Olin students to submit content each month. We’re looking for writing of any skill level on topics you are passionate about. The Frankly Speaking editors will help you refine your writing to a point where you are proud to see your classmates and friends reading your work on publication day.
Additionally, we need you to join Frankly Speaking. Many of the Frankly Speaking staff graduated last year, leaving several open positions on the paper. We need enthusiastic, passionate students to fill the following rolls for this upcoming academic year:
Editor – reads, edits articles, helps with layout. Must be able to spell and edit.
Layout editor – uses InDesign to lay out paper. Must be willing to learn InDesign.
Website manager – keeps FS’s website up to date.
Business manager – FS sells ad space and sometimes gets emails about it! Respond to ad requests and ask local businesses to sponsor FS with food!
Staff Illustrator – sometimes we have these awkward spaces and they have to be filled with drawings. Can you draw things at the drop of a hat? Be a staff illustrator!
Contributor – the bread-and-butter of the paper.
Everyone is a contributor! Come to the meeting this weekend with your article ideas or send them to:
