Do you have an interest in writing, journalism and local news?

Generation Plymouth is a local news website written for and by young people in Plymouth.

The site was set up with the aim of encouraging young people living in Plymouth to engage with news stories happening in their local communities. By focusing on stories that are both interesting and exciting to young people, we hope to make reading the local news more appealing to people under the age of 25.

We also aim to provide young writers in Plymouth with the opportunity to gain valuable journalism experience and develop their writing portfolio. Opportunities to gain experience in the journalism industry are fairly limited outside of London, but Generation Plymouth is hoping to change this.

We are always looking for contributors for Generation Plymouth. If you are aged 16 -25, based in Plymouth in Devon and interested in a career in journalism then get in contact with us!

Click below to get in touch telling us a bit about yourself and why you’d like to become a contributor and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
