The Arts and Culture Editor is responsible for overseeing the development of said section, insuring equal coverage of musical, artistic, and otherwise cultural community-wide events and stories as reported by University of Regina students. Likewise, the A&C editor is responsible for the upkeep and promotion of A Space of Their Own, a section dedicated to the creative writing and visual art of women, people of colour, LGBT community members, and disabled individuals.
The Op-Ed Editor is responsible for analyzing and quantifying local, political, and world events so that they may be presented in a comprehensive pitch list. These “pitches” are then distributed to a list of student contributors, who then submit 500-750 word written pieces to be edited by the editor.

On production night, the editor compiles all of the submitted pieces, included their own, while choosing appropriate images, queuing them for online publication, and engaging in discussion to better their contribution.
