Writer Wanted! Lax Kw'alaams to launch new community newsletter

Lax Kw'alaams is looking for a writer
for a new information project
for the community
An opportunity to tell the story of the community and share information about and for residents of Lax Kw'alaams is now available; as the First Nation community north of Prince Rupert makes plans to introduce a new information newsletter.

The Lax Kw'alaams Band recently went on the search for a writer for the project, with the newsletter expected to hold eighteen pages of content featuring stories and photos, with the Band to provide the photos from community events and information items.

With interviews and research required as part of the information stream for some of that content, applicants for the project should have some background in journalism. along with some writing skills that would be along the style found in  newspaper feature writing.

Lax Kw'alaams has not to this point outlined how often the new feature will be published and if they plan to offer it both in a print and online format.

Watching over the introduction of the project is Rudy Kelly, who was  appointed interim Band Administrator for Lax Kw'alaams back in June, so far there has been no confirmation as to whether that has been made a permanent position.

Mr. Kelly will no doubt be calling on his days as a journalist with the old Prince Rupert Daily News as he scans the submissions from applicants.

Perhaps filling the role of publisher for the new venture, he will be reviewing the submissions to select who may best capture the themes of Lax Kw'alaams that the Band Council is looking to share in the community.

Those with an interest is submitting a proposal can contact Mr. Kelly at
