LATINITAS YOUTH EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD
Dream of getting published? Latinitas is seeking motivated and talented young Latinas, ages 13-25, across the nation who want to get published, make an impact, and have their voice heard. Our Latina “word weavers” will get the experience they need as our future leaders of America by becoming involved with the Youth Editorial Advisory Board (YEAB). Are you a Latina living abroad? Not a problem! We want to hear YOUR voice as a Latina. Don’t be shy and apply! Young Latinas who are self-motivated and want to develop their writing and multimedia skills are invited to apply. This is a perfect opportunity for applicants who dream of a career in media and journalism and who want to make a difference while getting published at www.LatinitasMagazine.org . Youth writers are selected through an online application process. We look for quality over quantity, so let your natural talent shine.
