Sharing the News

Today I attended the York Daily News writer’s workshop.  I highly recommend this workshop for anyone who is interested in having the opportunity to share local news through YDR and the York Sunday News.  The next workshop offered is in November.

This workshop encourages the community to share upcoming events for local clubs, organizations and businesses.  Pictures are highly encouraged as they grab reader’s attention first and draw them in to read the accompanying article.

There were three main speakers at the workshop:

Randy Parker (News managing Editor)

Joan Concilio (Weekly Record Editor)

 Buffy Andrews (Assistant Managing Editor)

They offered suggestions of what they are looking for and how it should be submitted to the newspaper for print. 

YDR is looking for your stories in York County to share with their readers.  Anything that is of interest is welcome to be submitted.  If your church is having a rummage sale, scout troop is holding a car wash, a chicken barbecue, etc. they will share the information through one forum or another.  Think of this as a “free advertising” opportunity!

Also accepted are sporting events, listing for clubs, support groups, museums, college and military news.  The York Daily Record wants to share anything that you feel is news.  They have numerous news outlets such as Your News, Lifestyle, Yorkblog, FlipSide Magazine and more.

Here’s your chance to get your news out.  Don’t hold back, they want to hear from you!

Just reportin,


overwhelming response

Today was the first meeting for the York College newspaper, The Spartan.  Usually we meet in the Spartan newsroom to talk over upcoming events, assign articles and discuss what is “going down” on campus.  That was not the case today.

Mid-day we received an email directing us to Humanities room 218.  This is a large auditorium type room for lectures, visiting speakers etc.  The overwhelming response of new people interested in becoming involved in the college paper was fantastic!  The majority were freshmen, but there were newbies that are currently juniors and seniors as well.

We are all looking forward to publishing The Spartan for our fellow classmates, professors and campus staff.  I will also publish my articles on my blog site. (possibly other writers, with their permission)  Next Tuesday I am participating in a workshop offered by the York Daily Record for freelance writers looking to be published in York’s newspapers.  I have to miss half a day of school, but it will be worth it!

Soooooooo excited,
