How do I format a submitted (non-staff) photo?

Step One: Photos need to be formatted in the following way:

▪   Shoot photos on a digital camera that can handle 5 megapixels or higher.

▪   The preferred resolution is NOT BELOW 180 dpi and the preferred size is NOT SMALLER than 8x10.

▪ Transfer images to computer and save a copy of the original picture with a new name – something short that will describe the picture.

▪ Save as a jpeg.

Step Two: Compose an e-mail to the paper with the name of your photo in the subject line. In the e-mail give a photo description and give the names of people from left to right or whatever is appropriate. Basically, write a photo caption that will appear under the photo in the paper. Don't forget to provide the name of the person who took the photo.

Step Three: Attach the jpeg file to the e-mail.

Step Four: Send the photo to eagleview@nwacc.edu

How do I know my story will be used in the paper?

The paper reserves the right not to publish articles based on quality and/or space constraints. If an article is not used in one issue, there is a possibility that it will be used in the following issue. However, no notification will be sent out regarding the publishing of stories.

Are there jobs with the paper?

The short answer, yes. The student newspaper, Eagle View, is run by students, for the students and for the community. ANY student can join the newspaper staff as long as they are enrolled in at least one class. That class can even be a one-credit hour class. The Eagle View staff encourages potential staff members to enroll in Student Newspaper Lab class (JOUR 1061) and/or Newspaper Layout and Design (JOUR 2061 - this class only meets four times during the first 8-week session.) The editor-in-chief and the managing editor receive scholarships for working on the Eagle View.

Does the paper publish other styles of writing?

Rarely. The Eagle View always gives priority to news. However, short creative works may be published when space is available or under special circumstances, at the discretion of the student editor or faculty advisor/editor. No story over 500 words and no poem over 16 lines will be considered.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The English department publishes The Low Valley Review, a new national literary journal highlighting the works of community college students and faculty, and two anthologies of outstanding student essays, Expressions and Reflections.
