Okay, so I lied... I didn't manage to get out this monthly highlights blog-post for the newspaper until a couple of weeks after I promised it. But, that's okay! Read on, and if you want more, look forward to May's release on the 15th!
The Elliquian Herald and Post
is an entirely volunteer-run community newspaper, written by members of Elliquiy for members of Elliquiy. This newspaper strives to bring to everyone the small pieces of Elliquiy: the serious pieces, the fun pieces, the social pieces, and everything in between. Elliquiy is composed of many members from all over the world, from many different walks of life, from many different age groups; this newspaper is yet another outlet for creativity, a chance for members to have a voice.
And with no further ado... I bring you the highlights you can look forward to reading from April's issue!Please remember that if you are NOT an approved member... most of these links won't get you anywhere.
