Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Der Wanderer!

St. Paul's own The Wanderer (formerly Der Wanderer) is 140 years old this year! They've just launched an online version of their newspaper and they are soliciting stories from their longtime readers.

"The editors invite all Wanderer readers to tell their experiences with this newspaper: how you discovered it, how long you have read it, how it has formed you. We would like to hear from older readers, who may recall positions The Wanderer took during the World War II era and during the long Cold War, their experiences growing up Catholic in a culture that was then much more hospitable to Catholic (or family)life. We particularly want to hear from readers who are veterans of the liturgy wars, the sex education wars, the catechetical wars, the academic wars, and the over-reaching culture war that has been so much of The Wanderer’s journey over the past 50 years. "

Readers can send their stories
directly to:
Paul Likoudis
P.O. Box 236,
Hector, NY, 14841
or by e-mail
to: paullikoudis@empacc.net.

Likoudis lives in NY?

That means every newspaper in the country that hires columnists and purchases feature articles, is a potential job market.

Know any bloggers that can write?

And we know The Wanderer pays by the word; why else would their articles be so long. They find it cheaper to print un-edited than to pay for editors.

I met my husband through The Wanderer. Before there were blogs, The Wanderer was the ONLY voice of reason for many years.
