I am the new Reviews Editor for the LIU Post Pioneer this semester. We are asking you, our readers, to get involved in our weekly publication. If you are interested in writing and publishing reviews, please email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. I check this email account daily, so you can expect a prompt response.
Students don’t have to be Journalism or Media Arts majors to write about a passion. An Art major could review the latest exhibit at a local museum, while a Physical Education major gives his or her input on new training techniques. A Music major can review the latest concert he or she attended. Excel in your field of study by writing a relevant piece, putting your knowledge to the test. Become our expert consultant, and share your ideas with others. The reviews section is open to all faculty, administrators, and parents who want to express their opinions. A review is an opinion; it can’t be wrong. I write about the television industry and the shows that are currently on the air. It intrigues me how projects develop and how they can be in development for years and either succeed or flop in a matter of 2 weeks. Figuring out what went right and what went wrong is only half the fun.
The Pioneer welcomes all students to join our meetings every Monday during common hour in Hillwood Commons. In the fall, The Pioneer featured reviews of movies, documentaries, books, albums, video games, restaurants, spas, and food establishments. These are just a few suggestions and guidelines to go by.
Students are not expected to write a review weekly, although it would be highly appreciated. If you have a test to study for, study for the test. If you have a family obligation to attend to, attend to it. If you have some free time between classes or a day off, write a review. It will only take you a few minutes. Reviews are to be submitted by email to email@example.com no later than 5 p.m. on Sundays for Wednesday’s paper.
