“It’s good to promote our work and have it showcased in a different light,” said Emma Kinery, Michigan Daily editor-in-chief. “When you come on our website, we’re immediately seen as a student publication. But the newsletter highlights us as a newspaper, not necessarily a student newspaper.”I think Emma Kinery's statement really captures one of the great things about ANNthology from our point of view: the newsletter is a great way for us to get our articles out to a wider audience. As a reader, I really like ANNthology because it does a great job delivering important local stories I might not otherwise find on my own.
Organizations such as the Ann Arbor District Library and the Ann Arbor Art Center have started blogs covering arts and culture in the city. When that content is included in the newsletter, it helps raise awareness for topics undercovered by other news organizations, said Luisa Puentes, Ann Arbor Art Center director of marketing.
“We felt the void of information about art in the community,” she said.
