Just accepted a post as our club's newsletter editor. I've done others
and know the problem in getting any kind of content to fill the pages.
like our newsletter to be informative and broadening beyond our county
I had a half of a thought that I would develop some of my own stories.
with local companies selling woodworking products or services
I'd be interesting in sharing these with other editors, IF, I could
get the same
An example, I was thinking of approaching the owner of a Japanese
tool store nearby and doing a 30 minute interview. If you had a
story, I'd swap you. They don't have to be magazine quality, but a
they would help to "round out" the newsletters when there is little
else to put in.
I am also developing Sudoku like puzzles but using words (i.e. bench
numbers to solve the puzzle. I'd share those as well.
I wouldn't mind be contacted off-post here, but interested in hearing
editors (and readers of such newsletters) as to your thoughts.
As I was reading your post, I thought of
something that might or might not be
labour intensive, but could be a trove
of information for you.
I'm a member of both this forum and
rec.crafts.woodturning, and I'd guess
that on average, about once a week in
each forum there's a "story". It could
be related to safey (kickback, lost
fingers, etc), technique, machinery, or
just meandering thoughts.
As I said, compiling a story out of the
diversions and digressions from a USENET
thread can be labour intensive, but
could also be an endless source of
"filler". Depending on the topic, it
could even be a lead.
Food for thought....
