The editorial side of The Post is made up of five sections: news, culture, sports, opinion and The Beat. Our copy staff copy edits all work from each section.

Writers are encouraged to explore different topics to find out what they are most interested and passionate to write about. Ideas are encouraged to be pitched to a section editor or writers can be given a story by their editor. Writer positions are unpaid but is still a good experience for clips and feedback on writing skills.
