Slant News Info Session
Learn about Slant News today at 7:00 p.m.
Cronkite #314

Officially launched last month, Slant hit the one-million unique visitor mark within weeks of its debut. That’s because Slant, as the name suggests, offers young and diverse voices a professional platform that can help them get paid for their work, as well as access to an editorial team able to help writers optimize their content to perform well online. This hybrid model—combining the rigid professional standards of traditional journalism with the democratic thrill of crowdsourcing—is one of the more promising journalistic undertakings in years, and Slant’s looking for even more young writers to join the team.
