OLIVIA Turner is stepping out of her school shoes and into the shoes of editor for the next two months.

Thanks to a partnership between The Morning Bulletin and North Rockhampton High School, the Year 10 student and her classmates are creating their very own newspaper.

On Monday, members of the Bully's editorial, advertising and photography departments sat down with the students to share their knowledge on the fast-paced industry and offer some advice.

"Remember, it's all about story-telling," Bulletin editor Frazer Pearce told the kids.

The students have eight weeks to source and write news stories, book advertisements, design the pages and snap some great photographs.

Olivia, who has been appointed one of the editor roles, said she was really excited about the project.

"My mum wants me to get into journalism," she said.

"I think it will be really interesting, getting to know more about people and what they do."
