Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The TeenTix Newsroom is now accepting pitches from outside the Newsroom. If you are a young person from 13-19 years old and you would like to tell a story about art or review an art piece, use this form to be considered for a pitch piece. If your pitch is accepted you’d have the opportunity to work with a teen editor to polish your piece for publication.
The pitch process is a chance for you to have your voice heard about art events you are specifically passionate about! You can either review art or write a feature or opinion piece about your arts community. This will NOT be a paid opportunity; however, if you review art at a TeenTix partner, you can use your TeenTix pass and your ticket will be only five dollars! Check out the calendar if you need inspiration; we've got loads of awesome things going on at our partner organizations this month.
Know that by submitting this form, you are committing to meeting the schedule and deadlines that we use for the Newsroom editing process. Once you have seen the event or completed any necessary prep work, the first draft will be due by the next Wednesday at midnight. Your editor will have provided you with the first round of edits by the following Saturday at midnight.
You will resolve all edits by Monday at midnight, and any back and forth edits will be completed by Wednesday. Your piece will then be sent to copy editing and then to be published. You will also be responsible for working with your editor to find photos to go with your article.
If you have any questions about this opportunity, or need assistance filling out this form, please contact the Teen Editorial Staff: [email protected]
We look forward to seeing your pitches!
