Join TiP

Any 9-12th grade student in Boston can join Teens in Print as a staff writer. Teens meet Mondays from 3:30-5:30 near Downtown Crossing for a deep dive into journalism.

Come up with an original story idea about the issues that matter most to you, get one-on-one writing support, meet teens from across the city, have some snacks, and be published in the next issue of the newspaper!

Teens in Print also accepts submissions from contributing writers, including news stories, features, essays, memoirs, poems, lyrics, letters, opinions and editorial cartoons. TiP reserves the right to edit your work for length and content.

To join us as a staff or contributing writer, just fill out the form below.
