The TeenTix Newsroom is a group of teen writers led by the Teen Editorial Staff. The Editorial Staff is made up of 5 teens who curate the review portion of the TeenTix blog. Editorial Staff members decide which art events to cover each month, then assign teen writers to review them. Editorial Staff members edit all teen writing before it is published on the TeenTix blog.
Teen writers are eligible to receive a stipend of up to $20 per review!

Made for teens to connect with other like-minded youth and write about art, the TeenTix Newsroom is a place for teen arts lovers to practice their writing skills! Along with a teen editor, who will then edit their work, teens will attend an arts event for free. Afterwards, they’ll write a review that will be published on the TeenTix blog--so this is your chance to share your opinion on Seattle arts! For each review, writers will work individually with an editor on the Teen Editorial Staff to polish their writing for publication. Teen writers can pop in to the monthly newsroom gatherings to meet with the Teen Editorial Staff, receive side-by-side editing, and learn more about the craft of arts writing. Plus, there are snacks! This is YOUR CHANCE to join this fun, supportive environment, and become a published writer!
