Hear From Former Fresh Inkers!

“Writing for Fresh Ink was a great experience for me as a teen. I was able to gain experience and hone my skills in writing and reporting, and to learn about the editorial process, which helped me in my eventual journalism career. Plus, I made great friends who I’m in touch with to this day.”

Lahav Harkov
Knesset Reporter and Analyst at The Jerusalem Post
“Fresh Ink gave me an experience that bolstered my love for writing and reporting. I don’t think I would have likely pursued a degree in journalism without having had any previously published works, which I gained from Fresh Ink for Teens. I learned about developing content, working with editors, and even reporting. It all really enhanced my experience as a high schooler who was just beginning to think about different career paths. I’m so happy I had the opportunity to write!”
