Free New College Publication
- Please forward this message to any libertarian college students you
have contact with.
I have some very good news. I have found an advertiser/publisher
who is interested in creating a free bi-monthly college newspaper.
This newspaper is non-partisan, but certainly from a libertarian
view. Our goal is to promote individual liberty and personal
responsibility from a "cool" perspective. (Think Cosmopolitan and
Maxim magazines). We want to break down the nerdy stereotypes and
appeal to people who don't normally pay attention to politics.
We are working together to provide libertarian college students with
opportunity to have their own newspaper. There will be an outer
National section with an inside Local section. Professional writers
will provide most of the National content. The Local content will
vary from school to school and region to region and will hopefully
be written by libertarian college students.
I need your help in contacting local student groups. My publishing
partner already has other publications in Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Indiana, Connecticut, and Kentucky. We will consider other
states if the campus groups are strong enough, but preference is
given to these
states. Below I have pasted a list of what we are offering and what
Here's what we offer:
1. Free space for students to write about themselves, their
opinions, group activities, a calendar of events, etc.
2. Advertising space students can sell to raise money for their
group or increase their number of pages.
3. We will send individually addressed copies to everyone on their
4. We will edit and offer help in creating an attractive publication.
Here's what we want from the students:
1. We want you to form a separate student group to handle only this
project with at least a chair, secretary , and treasurer. This
group will be in charge of approving material for publication, be
our company's local contact, and getting advertisers if you choose
to do so. (Since we are legally liable, we'll have final editorial
authority, but we want this to be your publication as well as ours)
2. We want you to help us gather a listing of all on-campus
addresses to both students and faculty offices where we will send
3. Most colleges will distribute mail inside campus for free. Is
this the case on your campus, and what is their policy?
4. Begin this process as soon as possible. We want our first issue
to go out before the end of fall semester, and continue bi-monthly
during the academic year.
5. In your local section, you should include things of interest to
all students such as: a campus calendar, football schedule,
important announcements. We want students to open it and find it
useful. We want your group to write about activities you are
sponsoring. Create a buzz. Get people interested in personal
freedom who may be turned off by the word "libertarian" by doing fun
things. We won't publish long essays on the marvels of Ayn Rand.
We want to excite people. Write reviews of movies, tv, music,
sports, etc from your perspective.
I hope this gives you a good idea of what we're looking for, local
partners in a national venture. We will reach at least a million
copies in our first edition. Of course, we need to work on how many
will actually be included in your local edition which depends on
your campus and what schools are nearby. If your campus is
relatively small, we would like you to partner up with nearby
colleges and work together.
I ask you to please forward this message to any campus contacts you
have as many of the National links are out of date. Thank you.
