Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

It's your paper too, so what do you want to see?

  • Print

Everyone looks forward to the weekend.

Maybe it's the excitement surrounding the Jets playing the Senators. It could be saying yes to the dress at the wedding show. Perhaps a skate at The Forks is on the agenda.

Whatever the reason, what we do at the end of our week is usually the best part of our week.

With that in mind, we want the Free Press to make your weekend even better. And keeping with my New Year's resolution to engage readers in our journalism, we want you to help us with our next big project.

So here's the deal:

We are starting with a blank canvas that will, in short order, become a new showcase section in your weekend edition of the Free Press. My only marching orders to our staff are to create a section that readers are prepared to fight for when they pick up the paper Saturday morning.

But what are your marching orders as a reader? What do you want to read? What do you need to read?

Tell us what you like or dislike in FYI and Detour. Let us know what you think we are missing. Share with us your vision of the perfect weekend read. Talk to us about topics, tone and tenor.

The Free Press is never timid, so neither should you be when giving us suggestions. Also, don't be afraid to colour outside the lines. There's three ways you can share your thoughts:

-- send us an email at feedback@freepress.mb.ca

-- post a comment on the online version of this column at winnipegfreepress.com

-- send a letter to me c/o the Free Press newsroom, 1355 Mountain Ave, Winnipeg, MB, R2X 3B6

As we move forward in this creative process, there will also be chances to meet with me at the Free Press Café to talk about the shape and look of the new section. Plus, you'll be able to follow our progress on our website. So stay tuned.

A newspaper that gets people talking is a newspaper that is doing its job. I want the Free Press to not only be part of the conversation in our community, but also always adding to it.

My hope is that by having this conversation with you now, by reaching out to you in a way that breaks new ground for a 140-year-old newspaper, we will together create a section that we can really look forward to each weekend.

Paul Samyn is the editor of the Free Press.
