How to Get Student Journalism Published Nationally
The superstar journalists of tomorrow, the ones who'll ensure that great stories thrive and move the world forward, are hard at work, right now, in high school. But too often no one but local communities sees their work, even in this age of social media. Jonathan Rogers, a journalism educator and JEA board member, has cracked the code on getting student work in front of national readers, with minimal effort. Through his Flipboard Magazine, which now has over 100 insightful and funny stories and tens of thousands of readers, Rogers seizes new distribution and curation models to ensure that student work gets the audience it deserves and that students get inspired by and learn from each other.
