When do we release our magazine?
We are not required to release a magazine quarterly or annually. However, our staff through the years took the enthusiasm to publish magazines that it eventually became a tradition. The magazine is a non-compulsory issue that is created from all the services rendered by the staff all year long (i.e. story releases, graphics, multimedia on web, newsletters, etc.).
How to reach us for event coverage?
You may contact us by sending a message to our official Facebook page strictly three days before the actual event. We only cover events organized by bonafide students of VSU. Our coverage consists of news articles and photos of the said event.
Note: Event coverage is free of charge.
Can non-Amaranth staffers contribute to our contents?
Do we receive compensation for our work?
No, all of our staff work hard to deliver quality content to our audience for free. Regardless of this, we consider Amaranth as a place where we can hone and improve our skills in the field of journalism and media. The only payment we receive is when we gather likes, comments, and shares. These simple responses serve as enough incentive for us to continue working hard and serving the VSU studentry— everything we do is out of our own passion.
