Northfield News Community Forum In-Person

Have you ever wondered how the press chooses which stories to run? Do you have a good story to share with the community? Have you ever wanted to give your opinion on an issue, but weren't sure how to do that?

The Northfield News is hosting a forum to answer any questions you have about your hometown newspaper and let you know how you can get more involved.

Pamela Thompson, the associate editor of Northfield News, Ross Ulrich, advertising director for the News, Philip Weyhe, regional managing editor, and Randy Rickman, president, will field comments and answer questions about local journalism and processes at the News from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Northfield Public Library, 201 Washington St.

The forum will provide information on Northfield News policies and give the community tools to become more engaged with the newspaper. Rickman, Weyhe, Ulrich and Thompson will walk through the steps of how to submit a letter to the editor, suggest a story idea, buy an ad, submit an obituary, write a guest column, purchase a photo, and supply feedback to articles.

"Our goal is to hear what the community has to say about the newspaper and enable people to join the conversation."
