One of the most common questions I get at Boys’ Life is, “Where do you get the ideas for the stories you write about Boy Scouts?”
The answer? We get them from you.
Seriously, the majority of stories that we print about Scout outings, service projects and otherwise exciting events all got their starts when readers like you contacted us and said simply, “Hey, you might be interested in what we’ve got going on out here in [INSERT TOWN NAME HERE].”
Now, we can’t possibly cover every single event that we hear about, but you never know until you try.
So what’s the best way to contact Boys’ Life with a story idea?
