Write for Sherman Ave! The Application Is Here! SLDHGALSJGASL! (Fall 2014 Edition)
Mahatma Gandhi. Steve Jobs. That guy who landed that plane in the New York River. These are all people who have not written for Sherman Ave. Wouldn’t you like to go places where even they could not go?
Well, now you can! We at Sherman Ave need new, fresh, sparkling green writers to replace our old, moldy, rapidly decaying ones. If you are funny, or if you think you are funny, or if you just have nothing better to do, then you should fill out this sweet and juicy application and fill our hearts with joy and whimsy.
A few things:
- Contrary to popular belief, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A NORTHWESTERN STUDENT TO WRITE FOR SHERMAN AVE. We’re psyched to get funny voices and funny writers, period. If you want to apply, apply. There’s nothing stopping you except your lack of hands your own inhibitions.
- “But Sherman Ave, I thought that there was a freeze on student groups recruiting during Welcome Week this year! Aren’t you gonna get in trouble?” While that freeze is very real/cold, Sherman Ave is not a Northwestern-recognized student group, so WE CAN DO WHATEVER THE FUCK WE WANT WOOHOOOOOOOO.
- If you do decide to apply, the most important thing to remember is this: Be yourself. Seriously, be yourself. Just for complete clarity: BE YOURSELF!!!! Write in your own, personal voice; write the kind of application that you yourself would enjoy reading, and not the kind of application that you think we would enjoy reading.
Tl;dr: The application is HERE. WE ARE SO SO PUMPED TO READ YOUR YOUNG AND BUDDING MINDS.
