About Us

LA News Desk is a web-only student newspaper run independently of any particular school. It was conceived in February of 2008 and launched that December. Its aim is to provide high quality, unbiased content from students in the Los Angeles area.

Unlike conventional school papers, LA News Desk allows any student to contribute without having to commit to writing multiple stories, which is a big barrier to students who want to simply submit a one-off article on a topic they're passionate about. However, students who do commit to contributing regularly are rewarded with a profile page on the site that's perfect for including on a college application. (Here's one example profile page.)

In addition, LA News Desk provides a money-making opportunity to student journalists by sharing advertising-based revenue with all of its contributors.
