The Spur

Join Us

We are continuously looking to add more Mustang students to our staff. If you are interested in journalism and would like to write for The Spur, please consider the following.


We publish 24/7.

This means you can contribute as many articles as you would like. This does not guarantee that your article will get posted, however. Articles must be approved by editors.

You do not need prior experience, but it is welcome.

As a student newspaper, we work towards preparing you for future success. The editors will work alongside you to ensure that you are continuously achieving growth in the writing field.

We focus on SMSU.

The Spur works to give students a platform to write about SMSU-related stories that are relevant to students. This means you can write about whatever you want as it pertains to SMSU (ex. sports, clubs, academics).

We maintain growth and a positive attitude.

We work to make each other stronger through delivering professional stories for SMSU publics. This is achieved through working together, accepting criticism, and having a growth mindset.  If you are not willing to actively participate, don’t join. 

Future Opportunities

The Spur allows your stories a professional, public platform that can be included on resumes and referenced in portfolios. We actively attend conferences so as to provide another avenue of improvement within the field of journalism by networking with professionals and exposure to other publications.
