YOUNG writers will soon start receiving their special Junior Reporter press cards.

Applications for The Gazette’s new club are flying in.

We are on the hunt for young newshounds to write stories which we will feature in our new young reporter’s pages – starting from next month.

The club is free to join.

All young writers – aged 7 to 14 need to do – is fill out the registration form to the right, return it and we will send them their very own press card (as pictured above).

All we ask in return is members start writing.

We will feature their stories – up to 300 words long and on a whole host of topics – in The Gazette each week.

So has something happened in your local neighbourhood – an eco issue perhaps – which you think readers of The Gazette would like to know?

Has your school team won a big game or have you or your friends done something which deserves a write up, say raised money for charity?

Or perhaps you want to write about your grandparents. Why not interview them and write about something that has happened in their lives.

All children love to write stories and so we want to give them the chance to show off their talents across the Fylde coast.

We know a number of schools – several who have visited The Gazette offices – are doing projects about the media.

The interest and enthusiasm is amazing and so we thought it would be perfect to start a Junior Reporter’s Club and give youngsters the chance to see their work in The Gazette.

And our junior reporters can literally write about anything they want to.

We are receiving loads of calls, emails and letters about the club – interest is really high.

We can’t wait to send out the first batch of press cards and then start reading the stories sent back in by our Junior Reporters.
