Staff Writers


We need more writers! The core editorial staff at has decided that giving birth to twins, moving across the country and working on dissertations are reasonable excuses for writing less. We need some additional smarties to write, illustrate or make videos for The Cronk of Higher Education. Staff writers would have a steady presence on the site, writing two to four articles per month and participating in story pitch sessions to develop and encourage coverage about hot topics in all areas of higher education.


  • Exceptional writing mechanics, sharp sense of humor and broad awareness of the culture of higher education
  • Ability to work productively in a team atmosphere
  • Steady flow of creativity
  • Steady attention to deadlines

To Apply

Tell us about yourself in a letter. If you’ve never written for us, please include a sample Cronk article. Send all to Make us smile with your résumé and charm. We’ll start looking at applications October 23 (the same night as the Mark Twain Awards, which you will help us win someday) and keep accepting them as long as there are phenomenal people out there.
