My affinity for writing has earned me a great position as a contributor and an editor on the Gazette staff team. It has topics of various kinds including science and technology, famous graduates of my school and even extra-terrestrial topics.

Getting The Position

My school friend and I were roaming the school halls when we spotted a flyer, asking for contributions to a magazine called the Gazette and also stating that it could enhance our extra-curricular.
Of course, I had contributed to many magazines before and all that had happened was that it could published and nothing more. So, I thought that writing for the Gazette wouldn't be any different. Still, I tried just the same.
I sent the magazine a few articles from Wikinut for example, the article on children.
After sending in the articles, I received a response from the head of the Gazette, Ms. Laleen.
She was impressed with the articles I had written and invited me to join the Gazette staff, an offer no other magazine had presented.
I remember the first meeting I attended with the rest of the Gazette staff during afterschool timings.
A few days later, I was offered the title for editor, an offer I gladly accepted.

My Time As Editor and the Publication

I was given a couple of articles to edit including my friends articles, which were about the extra-terrestrials and I can tell you that it wasn't an easy job to do.
But I managed to compile and complete all my work and the magazine came out.

I was really excited the day the Gazette came out because that meant my name would be in printed letters! And I also had to admire the work done by the rest of the staff. They all had done an exceptionally great job.
One of my favorite parts of being a Gazette staff member was that I got my official Gazette ID card (and some complimentary cupcakes for our work) and that really was a big thing for me.
We were all given a couple of copies to distribute as to increase our audience and ratings.

We are currently working our next issue that is set to come out this fall. And this time, I have been given the task to interview a school graduate. So, wish us all good luck!

Features of the Gazette

The Gazette is full of facts and opinions and also a 'behind the scenes' section of our school debating section.
We have separate topics on each page and a few tips, opinions and entertainment on the last few pages. This magazine even holds information on graduates from our school who have followed popular careers.

One of the main reasons I have written this article was because to increase its audience. The Gazette is available in both soft and hard copy.
