For school, finding interesting topics to write about might seem to be an arduous task at first, but the ideas presented below might make it easier for you to choose a good topic...

Be it any kind of writing, topics are aplenty. But will these topics appeal to your readers? Do these topics have enough depth? Do they inspire you to write on them? These are the general criteria for selecting topics for any kind of writing. The way of choosing a topic for an essay is different from the way of choosing a topic for a school newspaper article or a speech. If it is for the school newspaper, the topic will be most probably an event, or the opinion of the writer on an event. On the other hand, the choice of topics for an essay is the easiest as there are no limits to what an essay topic should be. So here are some topics to write about for school essays, journals, newspapers, or magazines. You can choose from them or form your own ideas to write about for school newspapers, projects, essays, etc.

You are free to choose any of the topics from the above list. Just make sure the topic is relevant to the locality of your school. Also, it is best if you just take inspiration from the above topics and come up with your own writing ideas for school. The next important thing is to check if the idea you have chosen to write about is a feature story idea or a news item idea, or an essay, because each requires a different approach. If you just can't find anything to write about do a profile article on any of your inspiring teacher or a student who has achieved something big. All the best.
