Photos/Art:

“Must be able to provide hi-res photos of kid interviewees if pitching a kid profile.”

Hints:

“Writers should be pitching story ideas, not topics. For example, don’t say that you want to write about plastic straw bans. Instead, find some kids who are involved with this cause and explain that you want to write about what they’ve been doing — what inspired them to become involved? What steps have they taken so far? What impact have they had? Etc.”
