How to Start a HS Newspaper

Start the Press!

Download this primer (PDF, 360K) on how to start a newspaper written by college students for high schoolers.

Start the Press! was sparked by a 2004-05 ASNE Partnership with The Montgomery (Ala). Advertiser, Notasulga (Ala.) High School and Auburn (Ala.) University’s Department of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Journalism students in Associate Professor Laura Nan Fairley’s Newspaper Management class at Auburn took the initiative to chronicle their efforts to get The Notasulga Times back on its feet.

Their experience and tips are useful to high school students who want to start or improve their school newspaper.
