Year13 boasts a young team of writers who are passionate about encouraging their mates to explore their career options because most of us have no idea wtf is out there.
So we’re giving you the chance to give writing a go and get it published on the site.
Cool stories, study advice, things you wish your teachers had told you, how you failed your first uni essay and what it was like dropping out in Year 10. We want to know how it felt to lose your best friend, or how you landed your dream gig or what you did as soon as your got your Ps. We want fresh ideas (and we’ll know if you’re just ripping off some of our old articles). But most of all we want your story.
If you’ve got a knack for stringing together words, are the best story teller in your group or just have something to say–we wanna hear it.
Here’s some of our fave articles:
- My Advice For Anyone Starting Year 12
- 13 Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Do At A New Job
- Out Of School And Never Been Kissed
- 14 Things You Need To Do During Your Teenage Years
- I Flunked My Year 12 Exams And I’m Absolutely Fine
- The Nuances Of Being Asian In Australia
- 15 Travel Hacks You Need For Your Next Trip
If words aren’t your thing, you can submit photos as well. See all the photos we use in articles? We gotta get ‘em from somewhere and we want ‘em from you.
Go buy yourself a cheap disposable camera, take some snaps, get them developed and send them in to us- we’ll give your insta/photography blog/tumblr/whatever you want a cheeky shout out in the article (like the one at the bottom of this page) and you’ll get to show off all the cool shit you and your friends do on the site.
This is your chance to get some exposure for your writing and get that valuable experience that employers are looking for. It’s the perfect opportunity if you’re keen on journalism/writing/media/social media/marketing/communications or maybe you don’t know what the fuck you want to do and just want to give writing a go. Plus, if you become a regular contributor we’ll start chucking some cash your way. That’s how our writers (check out their stories here) all started out, so it’s tried and tested.
On top of that, we’ve got some prizes up for grabs for some of the best articles annnnddd we’re on the look out for a writer to land a full time gig in the Year 13 office.
We’re going to be reading through every article that is submitted to find the perfect person to come be a part of the team. If you keep an eye on our Insta you’ll know that it’s a pretty sweet gig over here at the Year13 office. We have doggos, a keg in the lunch room and go on staff getaways to houses by the beach. Told ya it was good.
You don’t have to awkwardly call us up to chat and you can write your article in your pyjamas at 3am while you watch Netflix and procrastinate doing your assignment.
All you have to do is head here, have a read through our guidelines, chuck in your details and put in your completed article.
If you want to submit photos still also fill in your details, then in the last textbox either send us a link to your tumblr or a dropbox of your pics, or just let us know that you have photos you want to send us and we will be in touch via email.
