LITTLE ROCK – Twenty years ago next Tuesday, what would become the final edition of the “Arkansas Gazette” hit the streets, marking end of the two-newspaper era in Little Rock.
How has journalism in Little Rock changed since then? That’s the question at the core of “Post-War Little Rock,” a blog meant to collect essays and other comments about the news landscape since Oct. 18, 1991.
The blog, http://postwarlr.wordrpess.com, is presented by Arkansas Press Women.
Contributors are invited to submit essays of 500 words or less, art or other forms of expression in answer to the single question: “How has journalism in Little Rock changed since the newspaper war ended in 1991?”
This effort is an extension of APW’s educational mission, and I hope, a chance for folks to reflect on the last 20 years and perhaps even offer some insights into the future of journalism in Little Rock.
Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
