Write for Young Archaeologist magazine
We love to feature things that you have written for us and there are lots of ways to get your name in print.
Read and Review - Do you love reading?
Read and Review is a feature in the Young Archaeologist magazine. In every issue of the magazine, two YAC UK members each read a book related to history or archaeology. Then they have the chance to write a review of the book and to tell YAC what they thought of the book. These reviews also appear on the YAC website as books that Young People Recommend.
We really want to hear from YAC UK members (especially those aged eight and under) who want to review books. If that is you, then why not contact YAC HQ in York. If you are selected we will choose a book and send it to you in the post.
We will give you plenty of time to read the book and write a review of around 200-250 words. Tell us what you liked or disliked, interesting things that you have learnt from the book and how you would rate the book out of ten. You should also include a bit of information about you (your name, where you’re from, your interests) and a photo of yourself. As a big thank you to you for contributing to the Young Archaeologist magazine, you get to keep the book that you have reviewed.
Read and Review competition
The Read and Review feature in the Young Archaeologist is always accompanied by a competition. This gives YAC UK members the chance to win a copy of the two books that have been featured in that issue.
Be a roving reporter for Young Archaeologist Magazine
Have you been out and about visiting interesting archaeological sites or exciting events? Perhaps you are doing work experience that you think might interest Young Archaeologist readers or are involved in a project that you are dying to tell us about. Whatever you have been up to, we would love to hear about it.
The YAC Team love to hear from our YAC UK members about the YAC Pass sites that they have visited with their YAC Pass booklet. If you and your family/friends are planning a visit to a YAC Pass site why not make some notes and write a short report about your day. Once your report is complete you can email it to YAC at email@example.com or post it to YAC headquarters.
To make your report more exciting why not take some photos of yourself at the YAC Pass site. You never know, your YAC Pass report may end up appearing in the next issue of Young Archaeologist magazine!
Get in touch and tell YAC your ideas and if we think that it would make a great Young Archaeologist article then it’s time to get writing. Anyone who has their writing featured in the Young Archaeologist magazine will receive a mystery archaeological thank you gift.
Our resident archaeology-loving worm, Norman is ready and waiting at YAC HQ to receive your archaeological letters, jokes, poems, pictures, puzzles.….in fact, anything you like.
