Become a Newsie

What is a Newsie?
You are - that is, if you like to write and have something interesting to say. You could be a professional journalist, a hobby writer/blogger, or just really passionate about writing.

No, really, what is a Newsie?
Historically, Newsies are retailers of news - paper boys, paper kiosks, news agents etc. It was also a nickname for journalists. Our Newsies are citizen journalists, and we're Newsie - purveyor of fine news.

Do I get paid?
No, Newsies are voluntary writers who want national exposure to their subject. However, we do run a monthly competition, with great prizes, for the best article(s) of the month.

Do I get anything else?
Newsie is a social news platform. Readers can like and follow their favourite Newsies, so you can attain an audience of people truly interested in what you have to say.

Ok, I'll give it a try!
