ABOUT US

The Plant, founded in 1969, is Dawson's student run newspaper. It is a platform for students to voice their opinions on what matters to them, to explore the field of journalism, and to publish their work.

 

The vast majority of articles published by The Plant are those written by contributors. Any Dawson student, studying in any program, can send in an article they think should be published. For each section, there are editor(s) available to talk to contributors to help them with their stories. Their jobs are to look over the articles, correct them, and give the writers feedback on how to improve their writing before it is finally published. If contributors have any questions related to their article even before they’ve started writing, they are more than welcome to contact us for help.

 

Each section publishes articles online and in print, and the quality of the articles do not differ. Nevertheless, we try our best to keep our content Dawson related – What is happening on campus? Why would students be interested in reading this story? Contributors should keep these questions in mind when writing.
