This summer, 17 of our Reading Activists got to visit the Guardian HQ in London to find out about what goes in to making a newspaper front cover, some travelling from as far as Newcastle.
The Guardian's very own Head of Education, Margaret Holborn, talked to the young people about the role of the reporter and editor. They then got to take on the role of a sub editor, creating their own newspaper front page using that day's news feed, writing headlines and choosing photographs.
The Reading Activists worked in pairs to create their covers, taking on the role of sub editor for each of their pieces. When the newspapers were ready, each pair received three A3 copies of their very own newspaper - the perfect souvenir from a day's reporting at the Guardian's offices.
The Reading Activists wrote reports on the day - find out what Sarah Thompson and Diane Wright, both from Northumberland, thought of the experience.
Check out this piece in the Warrington Midweek Guardian from two of the Reading Activists, Jake and Will:
