Teens in Print
Boston's Only Citywide Youth Newspaper
WriteBoston runs the only citywide public high school newspaper in Boston written entirely by and for teens. Developed in partnership with The Boston Globe in 2004, Teens in Print was created to unite the varied voices of the city’s high school students and provide a forum for youth to discuss the issues that matter most to them.
Issued five times per year, Teens in Print highlights the energy, activism, intelligence and talent of Boston’s teens. Any teen attending a public high school in Boston can submit essays, memoirs, poetry, stories, articles and letters to the newspaper. TiPsters gather twice a week at Northeastern University to share ideas, snacks - and to write!
Students learn practices essential to being a journalist – interviewing, researching, and writing – and in the process, they gain skills essential to being an effective student and employee – discipline, the ability to communicate, and professionalism.
