For the last 50 years, the Community Reporter has prided itself on being a news source of the community and has leaned into the ethos of being a community of reporters.
That’s why I am now inviting you—yes you— to potentially become a writer for our your and my) newspaper.
Do you regularly attend the many fabulous performances that take place in our city? Are you on the pulse of what books local authors are writing? Do you have to try every new restaurant that opens in our neighborhoods? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might fit in as our next culture writer.
Do you own a business in the neighborhood and often engage in or overhear interesting conversations in your business? Those musings might make for a great column.
Whatever your circumstances in the neighborhood, we’d love to hear from you, and I’m sure our neighbors would be interested in reading what you have to write as well.
The Community Reporter relies on its community of reporters to deliver grassroots news to our readers, so if you have an idea for a column or story, don’t hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 507-382-1903.
Casey Ek is the editor of the Community Reporter.
