The Beat is looking for writers and photographers for the coming school year.

The page — written by teens, for teens and about teens — takes the place of the Schools page the fourth week of the month.

“We’re looking for people to write for the newspaper and our Facebook page, help with fundraising, and take photographs for the newspaper and our websites,” said Kathleen R. Merrill, managing editor of The Press and The Beat.

“We meet once per month to learn about journalism, brainstorm ideas, plan the coming paper and our online coverage, and attend events to raise funds and awareness about our group,” she said. “We also have a lot of fun.”

Participants can be from Issaquah, Liberty, Skyline, Tiger Mountain Community and Eastside Catholic high schools. Freshmen and sophomores are especially encouraged to apply.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, email for an application. Completed applications are due May 7.
