Welcome to our newest blog, Metro Weekly EXTRA, where we'll take you behind the scenes of the stories, features and ideas you find in each week's magazine.
One of the historic frustrations of print journalists has been the hard limitations of space -- you often simply cannot include everything you want to. EXTRA is where you'll find those interesting snippets, anecdotes and stories that may not have found a home on our weekly newsprint, but are still worth your taking a look. EXTRA gives us a chance to provide you with even more in-depth coverage of the people in our local GLBT community.
EXTRA is also where you'll find our editorial staff answering questions and expanding on the stories they write. While stories may have a definite beginning and ending on the page, in real life stories go on -- with EXTRA, we can provide additional information on stories as they progress.
Naturally, while we strive for total accuracy in all our content, on rare occasions we need to make corrections. Any correction that we run in the magazine will also be included in EXTRA, as well as any clarifications or statements that we feel will give you a better and fuller understanding of the stories we report.
As the co-publisher and editorial director for Metro Weekly, I can say that the magazine is, at heart, a reflection of our local GLBT community. We want to hear from you about what you read in Metro Weekly, both in print and online. Each of our stories contains the writer's e-mail address -- don't hesitate to write if you have a question, concern or clarification about a story. You can also write to us at our Editor inbox. We want to hear from you.
