The Opinion section has two new Editors at the helm, and we're looking to build the stable of writers contributing specifically to this section. We know you have thoughts about the Champaign-Urbana community, so why not voice them here as an engaged community member? Here's how to do it.

Please send us an email at info@smilepolitely.com telling us about yourself, why you're intersted in contributing, and all that good stuff. Since we're a hyper local magazine, applicants must have a grasp on local culture — and you don't have to be the best writer in the world. We're not either.

There's a little bit of money on the table when you write for the magazine, so there's that — but help us build this section, and it'll be fun and rewarding. We want to hear from you, reader.

If you're interested in getting involved, send us an email at the address above with the subject "Opinion Writer" and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. There are an unlimited amount of positions in this area up for grabs, so you can be one amongst several.
