Young readers’ international newspaper Newsademic ( is proving a hit in unexpected ways.

Since Newsademic’s launch at the beginning of 2006 reader numbers have shot up. Over three thousand parents have registered for copies and 89 schools - all over the world - now use Newsademic as part of organized class work.

Recent new subscribers include an institution for young offenders and a care home for mentally handicapped people.

"We are delighted we are helping such a wide range of people," said Susan Elkin, the editor of Newsademic. "We understand that staff at these institutions read Newsademic aloud to their residents some of whom cannot read it unaided."

"Most of our subscribers are either parents who take an active interest in their children’s education, ‘homeschoolers,’ schools which view current affairs as an important part of the curriculum and language schools using Newsademic as an aid to teaching English as a foreign language. So we see these rather different subscribers as a further, valuable endorsement of our publication," she adds.

Susan Elkin, Newsademic’s editor was recently awarded ‘The Lady Astor Rosebowl Award’ for freelance journalism. This two-yearly award is made by the Society of Woman and Journalists for the best published piece of freelance journalism in the previous year. Susan’s piece ‘Terrorists with History’ was declared the winner.

Newsademic is carefully written and edited for children aged between 9 and 16 and aims to educate and inform them about current international news stories.

The newspaper does not carry advertising. Neither does it feature articles about television, sport, computer games, pop music or celebrity culture. The focus is on international news events – the ones which shape and affect the world that we all live in today.
