Teen Editorial Staff

The Teen Editorial Staff (TEDS) is a group of teens who curate the review portion of the TeenTix blog. Teen Editorial Staff members decide which TeenTix Arts Partners' events to cover each month, write an editorial about their curatorial choices, and assign Newsroom writers to review each event. TEDS members interface with our Arts Partners to set up press tickets for each review, and edit all Newsroom writing before it is published on the TeenTix blog. The Teen Editorial Staff is a group of skilled writers, editors, and leaders, who keep the pulse of the TeenTix Press Corps and the Seattle arts scene.

Teen editors are compensated for their work with a stipend of up to $50 per month.

To have an event considered by the Teen Editorial Staff to be reviewed, please send press releases, pitches, and requests to [email protected].

The five teens who made up the 2018/2019 Teen Editorial Staff cohort included, from left to right: Anya Shukla, Joshua Fernandes, Hannah Schoettmer, Huma Ali, and Lily Williamson.

Read more about the fab five right HERE.

In the first year of the TeenTix Newsroom, the Teen Editorial Staff published over 60 reviews of events at our Arts Partners. Read those reviews on the TeenTix blog!

Congratulations to this inaugural group of TEDS. Read their farewell Newsroom post right here: TEDS 1.0 Signing Off!
