THE COMMUNITY JOURNALISM PROJECT

The COMMUNITY JOURNALISM PROJECT (CJP) offers writing and photo challenges, journalism skills-building, online workshops, and publication throughout the school year. Watch the site for weekly updates. This project is for students and teachers, inside and outside of the classroom.

YWP's Community Journalism Project provides a place for you to speak out, share your views with the YWP community, and get published! Respond to the weekly journalism challenges or write your own opinion about the issues that matter to you! CJP posts will be considered for publication as the Daily Read, in The Voice, on VTDigger.org, in our Vermont newspaper series, and in our anthologies. Join us!
IT'S EASY TO GET INVOLVED:
  • Sign into your YWP account, or join youngwritersproject.org. Teachers can create an account and submit on behalf of students (or even better – students create their own accounts. Parental permisson required for those under 13.)
  • Try the JOURNALISM CHALLENGES. This list of current, news-driven challenges grows as the school year progresses, with the most recent at the top.There are no fixed deadlines. You can write to any of the prompts any time through the school year and YWP editors will find them and select the best for publication.
  • Get published! YWP sends your writing, photos, and art to our media partners for publication, weekly in the Burlington Free Press and VTDigger.org, and monthly in the Rutland Herald and Barre-Montpelier Times Argus. We highlight your work on the front page of our site, and publish it in our monthly digital magazine, The Voice, and in our annual anthology.
