Think Like a Journalist

Contest for Teens

Deadline: May 2, 2019

To celebrate the launch of Faster Than Truth by K.L Denman, we’ve got a contest for teens. The main character in the novel is a teen journalist, so we’ve devised a contest that encourages teens to, wait for it, think like a journalist.

Contestants are to read a media package that includes a press release and a sample chapter. Using this material, they will build a story pitch that includes three to five questions for the author.

The winner will receive a free copy of Faster Than Truth for themselves and five copies for their school plus two Crwth Press journals  (Prize value over $100). The winner will get to do a Skype interview with K.L. Denman and write an article that will be published on the Crwth Press blog.

The contest starts now and closes Friday, May 2, 2019.

We will also post our favourite questions and their answers on social media under the hashtag #teenjournalism.
