Young journalists invited to write for Ham&High Young Readers Edition

Budding young journalists have the chance to write for their local newspaper as the Ham&High launches its third Young Readers Edition.

Youngsters are invited to submit news, comment and feature articles on topics of their choice for the special edition to be published at the end of October.

Maria Fidelis School pupil Paris Francis, 14, and Jasmin Taylor from Haverstock Hill will lead the young editorial team.

Editor-in-chief of the Ham&High Series, Geoff Martin, said: “Our Young Readers Editions have been excellent vehicles for young writing talent and creativity, and early indications are that this year will be no exception.

‘‘I am really looking forward to working with all the bright, young people involved.”
