From Harry Perry:
Many people have said what a good edition it was in November – so let’s keep it up, eh? It all depends on you!
The deadline for the December edition is 12 noon on Thursday 6th December. That’s just a week away as I write so please let me have your contributions asap (or let me know that something will be on its way soon). Thanks to those who’ve already sent stuff in.
Comments on past articles are always welcome so if you want a reminder of last month’s content visit this page which will allow access to the last and all previous editions: http://www.leicestersecularsociety.org.uk/newsletter/index.php
Ideas for articles:
How was inter-faith week for you?
What’s your take on the Clarissa Dickson-Wright exchanges? Is Leicester ghettoised?
Is press freedom the same things as free speech? Your views on Leveson.
How should LSS promote itself to young people who are indifferent to religion?
Also, a reminder, as ever, of what else you might put forward:
Local news of secular interest
Odd bits of national or international news that have gone unreported in the national secular journals
Your opinions on the big issues of the day
Poetry – with licence
Secular tourist reports from your travels
Reviews of events at the Hall
Puzzles – please offer a prize alongside
Thoughts for the day
Take apart a religious doctrine
Critique one of the Mercury’s religious First Person articles
Secular items for the Forthcoming Events box
Suggestions for Society action
Or, of course, anything we haven’t thought of yet that you think could be of interest to other members and friends.
I look forward to receiving your offerings. An across the board limit of around 700 words applies. Anything longer will either be edited down or, if it’s serious stuff, may get the two-page centre-spread position – or could even be turned into a series. Images are very welcome.
Send it all to me at: email@example.com or by post (in good time) to the Hall (e.g. if there’s a photo or cartoon that you can’t scan to file). The Hall address is: Secular Hall, 75 Humberstone Gate, Leicester LE1 1WB
