The Friday Flyer seeks Teen Talk columnist to join team


The Friday Flyer would like to congratulate Teen Talk Columnist Justin Dela Cruz on his recent graduation from Temescal Canyon High School. Justin will be attending University of California, Berkeley in the upcoming fall semester and his busy schedule will no longer afford him the time to write columns for The Friday Flyer.

The Friday Flyer is thankful for Justin and the insights he provided the past year through “Teen Talk.”

The Friday Flyer is seeking a teen columnist to take Justin’s place. The new columnist should be willing to submit one to two columns per month, approximately 500-800 words in length. Columnists are paid just $10 per column; so this position is for those who like to write and desire to share their knowledge as a means of serving their community.

Those interested in applying for the position of teen columnist are invited to send a sample column on the subject of school, teen life or teen activities in Canyon Lake to Editor Donna Ritchie at

Applicants are asked to provide grade level and a few of their hobbies and interests. The sample column should be approximately 800 words in length.
