Inspire your group to embrace the power of the press with an activity, from Julie Phillips


One of the many good things about writing is that you don’t have to leave your house to do it if you don’t want to. With the internet and TV at your disposal, it’s relatively easy to research and write without always having to trudge along to your local library and struggle through pages and pages of heavy texts or do battle with the ancient microfilm machines. For this workshop we are going to take advantage of what’s available on your front doorstep. Delve into the pages of the local press, listen to local radio and peruse the pages of those free newsletters and magazines that frequent our letter boxes. Some content from these local publications can also be found on the internet, but for the purposes of this exercise we are going old school and looking at the physical papers. We will be cutting and pasting but without the aid of a computer.
