Would you like to be part a new newspaper that aims to empower the unheard voices across the North East?
Could you encourage, support and actively participate in the uncovering and sharing of the many valuable stories missing from the mainstream media?
Would you like to shape and create the second edition of the citizen-led tabloid newspaper The Eclipse?
Pancakes, and next steps ...
About twenty five of us met on Pancake Tuesday, to begin to work towards the second edition of The Eclipse.
Since the first edition, a small group of us have been meeting behind the scenes to develop a bit of a road map of where we go from here. We recognise that to produce a second issue (and beyond), we need to create a solid and sustainable organisation that enables those issues to happen. We need to learn the lessons from the first edition in the content and process of content creation, hopefully ensuring that issue two and how it comes together is even better than the first and finally, we need to raise the funds to make future editions happen.
‘The Eclipse’ Our new people powered newspaper, created as an alternative to the billionaire owned mainstream tabloids launched last Friday on the 27th October at Settle Down Café in Newcastle.Read more

Theme: People Vs Profit
We are investigating whether people or profit comes first in our society, and are looking for content that gives evidence of when people do or don’t come first, what is the impact of this and also what we can do to respond?
