Newsletter writers write articles on topics related to community issues or events and/or AWOFINC activities. Topics may be suggested by The Written Word staff and board members, advisory committee or by volunteers. The Written Word’s newsletter is published quarterly typically toward the end of the quarter. The newsletter is mailed or emailed to some 1,000 homes and businesses in the area. The Written Word is also posted on AWOFINC’s website; All articles written by volunteers are submitted to The Written Word’s Communications Manager and Executive Director for review. The Written Word staff members are also available to help generate ideas or provide data if necessary. The amount of time spent on an article varies by the length of the article and by the volunteer’s work preferences. Deadlines must be strictly observed. All The Written Word volunteers are invited to AWOFINC’s Annual Events, receive the The Written Word’s newsletter and receive credit in AWOFINC’s Annual Report. Articles are also published in the on-line versions of the Trib Local (Chicago Tribune) and Evanston Patch (Pioneer Press)
