As we count down the days until October 1 and the beginning of National Newspaper Week, we're going to be including a weekly feature on our website and in our weekly newsletter to give you some possible ideas on how to celebrate the power of newspapers with your readers.
One suggestion we think you might be worth considering is called: Journalism Matters.
How do you do it? It's simple, if you follow the following steps.
- Create a special editorial feature on National Newspaper Week.
- Dedicate a special celebratory page in your newspaper to National Newspaper Week. This could include some of your best editorial features over the years, historical archive highlights or even a year in review feature with your best photographs, editorial cartoons and local news events.
- Spread the word. Use posters, social media, or just old-fashioned word of mouth to get readers talking.
