Their Words Speak For Themselves
The Memphis Flyer is a member of the Association of Alternative Newspapers, a trade group. But in order to get in, you must meet certain requirements and then pass muster with a review committee. The committee may either offer helpful suggestions if you are close to being worthy, or completely obliterate your efforts if they find you repugnant.
For examples that completely do the critical work for me, read from this page of responses to a recent round of submissions. Especially read what they have to say about the Independent Florida Sun.
I will note that it seems to show why the Flyer took up a "City Reporter" column.
Until next time, that is all.
