I am new to this forum. I have been an active Master Gardener for 4 years and now our President. We are new at writing a newspaper column and need help. I have published several articles myself, but want others to get involved. Does anyone have experience in how to do this? Who is responsible for editing the articles, other than the newspaper? Should I have the writer submit the column to me or a group? I do not want to upset anyone, but want the article correct. I do have an retired English teacher willing to look for errors. All of this came about because my article was edited by our publicity chair without my permission. I thought she should of at least asked me if she had questions before editing. She did not know what somthing meant so just took it out. She now says I should submit articles directly to the newspaper. I want the writer to be consulted about any changes. Help!
