WIP comes to you as a labor of love from our volunteers, with support from our advertisers and subscribers. We’d like to know what more we can do to make you grab a few copies of the paper to share with your friends.
Our mission is to confront injustice and encourage a participatory democracy based on justice in the economic, political, environmental, and social realms, across classes, races and genders. We do this by producing and distributing about 3000 copies of this paper every month with an electronic copy at www.olywip.org. Accomplishing our mission is a tall order for a volunteer paper, and we need feedback from all of you to maintain our mission.
What do you like about the paper? Any recent issue you especially liked? Format? Graphics?
How can we improve? Length of articles? Local vs regional and national articles? Diverse focus?
Please send your suggestions and contributions to email@example.com or to WIP, PO Box 295, Olympia, WA, 98507.
Want to lend a hand? WIP is always looking for writers committed to the goals of the paper. We can help you edit your work if you send it in before the deadline, which is typically the Sunday before the last Sunday of the month. As you can tell from the articles in this paper, we publish a range of articles: well-researched news stories, serious analyses of issues confronting our communities, and accounts of personal experiences or reflections. We are also in search of graphics, photos, cartoons, and poems that are consistent with our mission. Contact us through our email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or regular mail (see above) and we’ll get right back to you.
