Interested in contributing to BU News Service?


Overview:
BU News Service offers students in the journalism department opportunities to gain practical experience reporting and editing news. In some cases, your work may be shared with media partners who will publish it for a larger audience. Our focus is primarily off-campus, so we favor stories about the city, neighborhoods and wider issues. Please note that we are not an “archival” site. If you cover a breaking story and send it to us a week later, it’s highly unlikely that we’ll run it. We’re looking for turnaround times that mimic real-world newsrooms. So, file ASAP. (Also note that we don’t run everything that’s submitted to BUNS. We have a staff of editors who make the final call on what to run.)
