This term, Young Post is inviting class teams from all over Hong Kong to produce our Tuesday covers. That's right - the whole thing.
How it works
1. Gather a team of 6 students
3. Once you've received confirmation that your pitch is accepted, write the story, edit the copy and design the page. Team YP is on hand to offer advice.
Because writing for a newspaper is very different from writing an essay for school, it's a good idea to send YP editor a plan of your article before you start writing it. That way you will be sure you are going in the right direction and you won't need to rush to meet the deadline.
4. The day before your page is published, you will be given an exclusive VIP tour of the South China Morning Post's offices where, after meeting Team YP, you will get to see your cover as it rolls off the press.
On this 'Make the headlines' homepage you will find some useful information to help you in this new challenge.
‧The YP team gives you all the tips you need to write a good story.
‧ If you still have questions, have a look at our FAQs page. Chances are you'll find your answers there.
‧ For the occasion, YP reporters' team put together a quick timeline of both the Young Post and the South China Morning Post's history.
‧ To get a feel of what a newsroom is like and to keep track in this new adventure, Young Post Editor Susan Ramsay concocted a journalistic glossary.
‧ To learn more about the history of newspapers and how they work, read Carol Brennan's post on madehow.com: http://www.madehow.com/Volume-2/Newspaper.html
‧ Finally, you can rediscover fictional student Jason Yip and his adventures at Young Post.
