For submissions, or any other information, including corrections to published items, advertising information, or news tips, please contact us at 

We welcome submissions, and will consider publishing any item that is of interest to progressives or residents of Jefferson County Washington.

If you’d like to cover a beat, we would welcome that.
Beats that currently could use more attention are
Board of County Commissioner meetings.
Port Townsend City Council meetings.
Environmental issues in Jefferson County.
Homelessness and housing insecurity in Jefferson County.

We also welcome submissions of artwork, or poetry, especially if the subject fits our mission.
Editorial cartoons are also welcome.

If you have other ideas for stories, or series of stories, please contact us.

We are a group of volunteers who are dedicated to bringing a progressive voice in news reporting to the people of Jefferson County Washington.
We encourage submissions from anyone. We do ask, however, that you be able to back up your reporting with good sources. Submissions that are purely opinion will likely be published as a letter to the editor, or as an opinion piece, and will be attributed to the author only.

We aim to follow the Society of Professional Journalists code of ethics, which can be downloaded here:

At this point in the evolution of this newspaper, all reporters are volunteers. However, we encourage anyone who is a regular reporter to join the Industrial Workers of the World Independent Journalists Union. For more information on this union, please email
