Now Playing Tracks

Hey Alice, what happened to The Yearbook Office?

We are on an unexpected summer break. My day job got pretty intense all of a sudden, Josh has been busy entertaining the nation and the rest of the contributors have been off making summer memories by jumping into lakes or something.

We will be back the week of August 25th, with something new every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Just in time for the new school year to begin!

In addition, I am happy to announce that we are going to be doubling our rates for contributors! If you have been thinking of submitting a pitch, now is the time. You can find out more about our submission guidelines here. I would love to hear from you.
