ATTENTION WRITERS and bloggers!

ATTENTION WRITERS and bloggers!

Do you wish you had a place where your thoughts could appear in a column on a regular basis? If not every week, then every other week?

Are you a high school student, young mother, father or wizened old grandmother or grandfather?

I’d like to hear from you! I’m not looking for political commentary, just personal insight into how you view the world around you. This isn’t a paying job - the reward is in seeing your thoughts in print, perhaps having people recognize you. That’s how I got started at the Ely Echo - writing a column about women and adding insight on how people cook and sharing their recipes.

If you like to write, you’ll have ideas of your own. Give me a call and send me some samples to: thepub@elyecho.com

Let’s talk. Anne Swenson, publisher
