★ Local News Site to Launch in Roanoke: Writers sought

There’s great news for those who understand the importance of the local press as a community builder. Former Roanoke Times reporter Henri Gendreau is behind the effort, which he describes as a “local investigative news and literary website in Roanoke.”

The site will focus on local news, and also feature occasional original poetry and fiction delivered via a weekly newsletter.

Share your opinion on what a new outlet can do for you. Take the survey here.

Are you interested in potentially contributing the emerging project? Gendreau is especially interested in hearing from talented short story writers. Writers will be compensated with a minimum of $25 per poem and $100 per short story.
