Share A Story
April 30, 2015

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]This May, you have a new way to share important stories: a YALI Network newspaper. Maybe there’s a YALI Network event happening near you or you know a YALI Network member who is doing incredible things in your community. The YALI Network newspaper is your opportunity to tell us – in your own words – how other YALI Network members are making a difference. Look at the individuals around you like a journalist would, find a story that needs to be told, and write a short news article about it.

We are looking for 200 – 400 word pieces that reflect the expert advice from this series on the media. Scroll down to see what the submission process requires. Think about the story you want to tell. Write it. Then come back and share it with the Network. You have until Sunday, May 24 to submit your story about another YALI Network member.

Use this expert advice to help you tell your story:

What is News?
Getting the Story
Telling the Story
Taking Good Photographs
Ethics and Law
