EDITOR'S NOTE:

The Alternative Press (TAP) of Livingston is looking for student interns interested in writing on sports and/or school events. Anyone interested should call 201-618-7444, or send an email to jschatell@thealternativepress.com. TAP is also on the hunt for people interested in freelancing for the award-winning, online, hyper local, daily newspaper.

FYI, all but one of the articles linked to above, were written by a TAP student intern.

In addition, TAP Livingston is holding its monthly meeting for its student interns on Wednesday, May 7, at 3:15 p.m., at the Livingston Library, in the room located by the Children's area. Anyone interested is invited to attend. People interested in freelancing, and/or in taking photos during games and events are welcome to attend as well.

Parents of student athletes are also invited to write for TAP, and are invited to the meeting. Even if writing this spring is not possible due to sports, SAT studying or other activities, this meeting is a great way to get introduced to the TAP intern program and to sign up to write during a different season.

Coverage of sports is very important to TAP, and coverage by TAP sports interns is essential. While TAP strives to cover as many games, meets and matches at possible--covering every one is not always possible. However, adding more interns to the staff will help to ensure more coverage. In addition, TAP also welcomes and encourages members of the public to submit game information, quotes and photos via email to jschatell@thealternativepress.com.

And, anyone interested in submitting Jr. Lancer articles and photos or articles, and photos from any Livingston event—in the schools, in town or at Livingston's other private schools is also invited to do so via jschatell@thealternativepress.com.

Hyper local coverage is on the rise and the TAP family is growing by the day.
