Welcome to The Temple News!

Congratulations on making the first step to become a writer for The Temple News. Our paper reaches all members of the Temple University community through our website and the 8,000 issues we distribute every Tuesday.

The Job

The Temple News is always looking for talented, dedicated writers to join the staff. No prior experience is necessary, and there is no application process for becoming a staff writer. TTN is not major specific – we have more than journalism majors write for us, and we prefer it that way.

To begin writing, contact the editors of the sections you’re interested in writing for.  A full staff list can be found here.  Send an e-mail, asking them to add you to their e-mail list. It’s that simple. We’re self-starters at TTN, and we want you to be, too.

You can pick up articles whenever you’d like.  There’s no commitment until you pick one up, but the more you write, the better your chances to become a salaried staff member. Every article or photo published earns you $10. This includes our print and online product.

All writers and photographers must sign up for payroll. Talk to your section editors before visiting Human Resources for paperwork. You must also apply for the position via TUportal. For complete instructions, visit the newsroom.

The Newsroom

The Temple News is located in Room 243 of the Student Center.

We want to hear from you!

Have more questions? Contact info@temple-news.com, and one of our editors will return your e-mails soon. Or, stop by the newsroom and introduce yourself.  Knock on the door – odds are someone will answer.

We look forward to meeting you and having you work with us!
