Minister of Media

Hey, editor!
Here are some guidelines that you should follow when writing The Force Flyer.

Formatting of the Flyer:
1. Use this COOL IMAGE at the top:

2. Try to maintain political neutrality when writing political stuff. Write out what happens, do not inject personal bias
3. After the COOL IMAGE on the top of the page, write the Issue number and the Headlines. The Headlines briefly go over the important stuff in the flyer, and are intended to draw people in to read it.
4. To give some ideas for content, maybe include news on some new legislation passing, courtroom drama, government position changes, some interviews, etc.
5. The Force Flyer is meant to have news about the region. Most of this news should be about political happenings, RP, and FA, but other stuff like the Force Union’s recipe of the month and maybe the Force Union’s Anime of the Month IS WELCOME TOO. I’m not really a big politics guy (I find it to be a little dull) so variation is needed.
6. At the bottom of the Flyer, make sure to credit the people who worked on it.
7. Also include statistics for Force, the states, and the territories. See this Example FF for details: https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1472127.

General Information:
1. One Force Flyer should be published every month.
2. In this position you can ask for volunteers to help write the FF. Just like, contact the person you want to interview/consult for information and get rolling with that
3. In the case where someone’s being not specific with their information, tell them to be more specific :p

Tips:
1. Legal advice can be obtained from the Judiciary
2. If the Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister are not on, contact your Columnists with any Media related questions

Columnists

The columnists are people who help write articles for the Force Flyer. You can write articles about anything Force-related, including interviews with government officials, reporting on happenings in the RP, and articles about elections. You’re also free to contribute stuff you have written, like freestyle writing and artwork.

Tips:
1. Keep articles to 500 words maximum if possible
2. Find an image that fits well as a header for your article
3. If you need any help, just ask in the Ministry channel
4. If you are writing about anything relating to regional politics, keep your tone neutral
5. Try to space out your writing so you don’t end up doing it all the day before the FF is released
