Do you need a story written for your newspaper?

SHFWire interns can cover breaking news or a scheduled news event and write longer feature stories. We ask only that you give the reporting interns a byline and that you credit the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire. Interns write news, sports, business, health, home and garden, personal technology, travel and food stories.

Whatever your needs, e-mail your assignment requests to Jody Beck, program director, at beckj@shns.com or 202-408-2748.
