Taylor Blatchford, Founder and Editor, of The Lead, is looking for students and recent graduates to guest write for The Lead. No one knows student journalism better than student journalists, and she wants to hear how you’ve solved problems, innovated, or tackled complex subjects at your student publication.

All students will be paid for their writing, thanks to The Lead’s partnership with Poynter. Blatchford is especially interested right now in pitches on these topics:

  • Publishing across platforms
  • Photo + video journalism

The most successful pitches are specific and concise. Think about lessons other student journalists can learn from your personal experience, and show your understanding of The Lead’s purpose and audience. There’s no deadline, but the sooner you pitch, the better.
