Library partnership in question
Front Page, week of August 27, 2022
I’m very excited to bring you some original reporting this week!
This story was reported and written by Juxta Sprague, who was also part of our micro-internships earlier this year. Very happy to continue working with them.
I’d also like to share that this story happened in large part thanks to a tip sent to me by a reader. You can reply to this email with any tips or story ideas you have, or email them to email@example.com. I can’t promise they’ll all become stories, but sending a tip makes it a lot more likely to happen than not sending one.
I’ve also had a couple of others already answer the call for freelancers. I’m excited to start bringing you quality stories again!
