Learn to Create E-Newsletters in a Free Neighborhood Community Workshop

Neighborhood community communications workshop - 2014 - Knight School of Communication

The Knight School of Communication at Queens is conducting a workshop in e-newsletters for Charlotte neighborhoods and communities on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, at the Beatties Ford Regional Library.

If you’re still creating paper newsletters and distributing them door-to-door, you’ll benefit from this workshop. You will learn the basics of content creation, including story development and free resources; use email newsletter creation tools, available online for free or nearly free; create a draft of your first email newsletter — which can be circulated by email, printed on paper, or re-purposed for a neighborhood website.

The program is designed for residents and leaders of Charlotte neighborhoods and communities, supporting their work to create dialogue and constructive communication.

What to bring:

  • A community email address that you use for neighborhood communication–not your personal email
  • A digital photo of your neighborhood you may want to use in your newsletter. This can be a jpeg photo saved on a flash drive or sent by email.
  • A draft of a newsletter or past newsletters
  • You can also create an account at www.mailchimp.com and preview the website before the workshop
  • Visit Digital Charlotte for Neighborhood Communication Toolkit resources–digitalcharlotte.org
