We're Seeking Blog Contributors!
South End Stories is looking for young people to contribute to the Youth Blog this year. If you are passionate about social justice, world issues, art, and storytelling through writing and media, let us know!
What We’re Seeking
Pieces of writing, art or other media created by you. Your piece can center around local issues, stories of the community, social justice, identity, or just be your art. Examples include: an article about a current event, a poem or spoken word piece about anything you’re passionate about, or simply personal artwork.
We strongly encourage young people of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, religions, bodies, and cultural backgrounds to apply.
Payment and Publication
When accepted for the blog, your piece will be lightly edited by our youth editing team (unless it is personal artwork) and then published on our blog. You will receive a $50 stipend, or $25 if the piece is already published somewhere else.
Apply or ask questions by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with your piece or query.
