Topics covered include the functions and purposes of a newsletter; staff qualifications and duties, and the organization of a newsletter production staff; how to decide what to include and find appropriate articles; editing and writing techniques, including stylistic considerations; production decisions and procedures, including typesetting, format and design, printing and proofreading; distribution, with emphasis on preparations for mailing newsletters; and possible ways to evaluate newsletters, including survey questions and sample questionnaires. A bibliography lists additional sources for help in editing/writing or production/design, and a "game" based on the newsletter production process ends the guide. (LMM)
