WRITING FOR THE MEDIA
Editorial Board

Editorial board meetings

One type of journalist meeting is an editorial board meeting. This may be with a formal editorial board or with a single editorial writer, and is a unique opportunity to persuade a paper to advocate a particular viewpoint.

You can expect any combination of newspaper staff members to sit in, including publishers, editors, editorial page editors, deputy editorial page editors, editorial writers, reporters, editorial cartoonists - even a photographer. It may be in your best interest to encourage a reporter to sit in on this type of meeting - that way, even if the newspaper does not publish an editorial on your subject, you may interest a reporter in covering the issue from a news angle.
