Fancy writing a short article (200-300 words) for the newsletter? We have so much information about people and events that researchers on the project have unearthed and we’ve been given by members of the public. But we haven’t been able to find time to write up all these stories. Once they’ve appeared in the newsletter, they go onto the project website and are sent to the Teesdale Mercury, the local weekly newspaper, so the stories are a great way to publicise the project.
We have a stock of potential stories – now we need people to write them. It’s not meant to great ‘literature’, rather a ‘good story’ to catch readers’ attention. So don’t think you have to be an experienced writer – why not have a go? If you’re interested, just get in touch and we’ll take it from there.
