About

Who We Are

The Scarlet Letter, Boston University Academy’s student-run online newspaper, was founded by Zoe Xi in the fall of 2018. We publish writing and photography in the following sections: News, Opinion, Reviews, Commentary, Arts, and Satire. In doing so, we seek to report on current events with a connection to BUA, to bring forth a wide range of perspectives from BUA students, and to showcase the depth and creativity of student work. We hope readers gain some insight into our community through exploring the content of The Scarlet Letter.

Submissions Policy

We accept writing and photography submissions. For writing, we accept articles that fall into the following sections: News, Opinion, Reviews, Commentary, Arts, and Satire. For photography, we accept student-taken photography in general; there is no particular theme that we prefer. Please glance through the writing and photography in the sections on our website to gain a sense of what has been published in the past. Importantly, all submissions must be the student’s own work and be appropriate for a school setting.

To submit an article or photograph, please email Zoe Xi at zoexi@bu.edu.
