Lansing Journal Journeys
At less than two years old, Rhea Trepton already has the makings of a newspaper editor as, pen in hand, she studies the Editorial page of the December print edition. “She often sits at the table while I work with her 5-year-old brother on his preschool work,” says Rhea’s mom Becca.

You can have your Lansing Journal Journeys photo published too

The Lansing Journal Journeys is an award-winning feature that showcases people displaying The Lansing Journal in creative locations.

We initiated the series because we are a community newspaper, and we like to see community faces in our pages and community names in our photo credits.

To participate, grab a copy of The Lansing Journal—in print or online—and snap a photo in a “creative” location—it doesn’t have to be exotic or far. Email your photos to [email protected] and tell us:

  1. The names of any people (or animals) in the photo
  2. Some information about the location
  3. The name of the person who took the photo

We’ll publish them online as soon as possible and in print if we have room. Make sure you are subscribed, so you see your photos when we post them!
