Salient seeks new contributors

Student magazine and serial puzzle miscreant Salient is seeking new talent, according to information leaked from its impossible-to-find offices.

The magazine is celebrating its recent awards of “Stiffest Ply” and “Most Chafing” at the New Zealand Annual Toilet Paper Awards by announcing a new intake of interns and columnists.

According to the VUWSA accounts office, unpaid internships at Salient are “a great opportunity, particularly for our salaries line”. A Salient spokesperson said that many Salient internships—which involve reporting on the news and attending BYOs—later lead to rewarding work at publications like the Washington Post, Bild and The Guardian, although the spokesperson also admitted that this was baseless speculation.

Salient is also understood to be looking for additional columnists. In particular, it is looking for an agony aunt and an internet writer, but it is also open to other ideas.

Eager writers are encouraged to send a covering letter to editor@salient.org.nz. Columnist applications should also include a 300-word mockup of the proposed column.

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.

Ten things I wish my friends knew about being Māori

: 1). I wish my friends knew that when they ask me what “percentage” of Māori I am—half, quarter, or eighth—they make me feel like a human pie chart. I don’t know how people can ask this so nonchalantly, but they do. So I want to let you know: this is a very threatening
