Calling all teen writers

Are you a high school student who likes to write? Do you like expressing your opinions about music, TV, the latest trends or news? If so, we would like your voice and ideas to be featured in this newspaper and across our digital platforms. You’ll also get the chance to interact with teens from across the area.

The Wichita Eagle is starting a teen writing board. We are accepting applications from teens who will be sophomores, juniors or seniors in the 2014-15 school year. We hope to get diverse voices from as many Wichita-area schools as possible. Members must commit to writing the occasional column or story for the WichiTalk and Go sections and our digital platforms. The board will meet throughout the school year at our downtown Wichita office.

If you’re interested in applying, please go to to download the application. Deadline is July 18. If you have questions, e-mail

Join the Discussion

The Wichita Eagle is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere on the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
