The Simple News is a community-written and community-edited newspaper, covering events and stories related to the Simple English Wikipedia. Major news from other Wikimedia Foundation projects is also included as occasion permits. A new issue is published each fortnight and one can subscribe to the Simple News via talk page delivery. The first issue of the Simple News was published on 15 November 2008.
The Simple News Newsroom is for the discussion of stories among the contributing editors. Anyone can contribute articles to the Simple News. Suggestions and news tips from the wider community are also welcomed at the newsroom's suggestions page.
Unlike most Wikipedia content, Simple News articles carry a byline to indicate the person responsible for what often amounts to original reporting. However, post-publication edits such as grammatical and spelling corrections to articles are welcome.
