Writing & Editorial


Our editorial staff can help you communicate the diverse range of stories about Princeton's teaching, research and campus life.


We focus on writing stories and communicating information to support the University's mission and institutional priorities.

We publish key stories on princeton.edu. We encourage the campus community to contact us with story ideas and news about research, teaching and campus life. Our stories are available to you to republish to your Princeton website.

We also regularly publish stories from across campus. We will work with you to prepare your story for the homepage.

The editorial team collaborates with our media relations and social media staff to help disseminate Princeton news.

We also write and curate communications for specific audiences as they emerge as priorities, such as regarding the University's response to COVID-19.

If you have a story idea to share with us, contact Karin Dienst, managing editor, or our writers, Emily Aronson (campus life), Liz Fuller-Wright, (sciences), Jamie Saxon (arts & humanities) and Denise Valenti (campus-wide news).


We are committed to ensuring accuracy and relevance in mission-central materials about the University. Partnering with you and the rest of our creative team, we work to ensure the information you publish is engaging, clear and effective.

Editing is part of our process for publishing to the homepage, as well as in producing a variety of communications, web and print.

Our editorial style guide offers tips to help you during the writing and editing process.


We are available to provide insights on the best way to approach a story or editorial project. As we work with a range of people in offices across campus, we can help "connect the dots" in information.

We also are here to help if you have questions about tone or editorial consistency. We can advise on freelance writing or editing options.
