Are you a teenager? Do you have an interest in politics, inequality, feminism, Judaism, issues that affect all teens, or just about anything? Most importantly, are you interested in writing and journalism? Join The Chai team! Currently, Chai is a small startup magazine, but hopefully, with the exciting new writers and other support, we can make it big! Writing for us can give you a place to be published and have your work read by others!
Chai is focused on spotlighting teens and young adults voices about important issues and topics around the world!
The only requirement to apply is that you must be able to write an article once or twice a month to be published (of course accommodations can be made if you let us know ahead of time). If you are worried about not having a topic every time, you don’t have to because we believe in helping each other and working together! Someone is always able to help by giving writing prompts and talking about current events. Our writing staff really make up a small community that is always available to help you out!
In your application, you must include your name, birthday, email, three article pitches, etc. The application is a rolling process, meaning that there is no deadline to apply.
We accept writers regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or US citizenship. Writing for us does not offer monetary compensation, but it does offer real life experience, having your work published, and the privilege of getting to put it on your resumé! One of the best parts is that we do not accept writers based on their writing abilities because this is a place to get better over time! Our staff is always here to help by providing constructive criticism to make your writing better. We mainly look at your article pitches to make sure that you are informed and up-to-date with current events so you will have topics for articles.
Once we receive all your information we will do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible. Our goal is to get back to you within two weeks, but if it takes us a little longer, do not worry! We will get back to you as quickly as we can.
If perhaps, you have an article that you would like to submit but are not interested in writing on a regular basis, you can submit your article (with the information requested in the application) directly to Harrison Romero at firstname.lastname@example.org.
