Summary
Put your friends on the front page! Why not mock up a newspaper to celebrate
a special occasion, such as a wedding or birthday? You could hand out copies
to party guests, or just frame the front cover for the happy couple or birthday
boy/girl.
Create a news round-up for your alumni association, church group, U3A
group, allotment or any other community. It’s a great way to share news that
brings people together, even when they can’t meet face to face.
Create an illustrated travel diary, capturing your memories in words and
photos.
If you’re studying, you can take the hard work out of writing essays. By using
headings correctly, you can easily swap sections around and create a table of
contents.
Write tutorials. We’re all expert at something, so why not capture your
experience in a ‘how-to’ guide? You could distribute it face-to-face in
community groups or on the Internet. (For tips on fi nding like-minds on the
Internet, see my other book in this series, Social Networking for the Older and
Wiser .)
Summary
Plan your newsletter at the start, so you don’t waste time redoing
things later.
Use headlines, a strong fi rst paragraph and a call to action to make
it easy for readers to understand the story.
Don’t go overboard on colour if the newsletter is going to be
printed.
You can experiment with the design, using automatically generated
dummy copy.
Make sure the paper size is correct before you begin the layout.
Insert just two stories initially, so you can get the design right.
