Overheard in a Nass writer’s inbox

Hi Shayla--

I’m the News Editor at the Prince and we read some material you wrote for the Nass and were impressed. We like you to think about joining News staff this semester and reaching an even wider audience.
News is holding its open houses at 7 PM next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night in our offices at 48 University Place. We’ll tell you about the application process for joining the section and be around to answer the questions.

I hope to see you there,
