Q. How do I create a newsletter?


Newsletters are a great tool to inform your customers, clientele, or other readers about your business, organization, or department. They are often sent out following a regular, predetermined schedule (monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc.) and serve as a regular touch-point or connection with clientele.

Microsoft Publisher provides newsletter templates. If you prefer to use Microsoft Word, create newsletter-style columns.

You may also find it helpful to work with a tutor in Tutor Match. For the topic, select Writing/Research and for the subject, select Writing Assistance

Brainfuse homepage with Tutor Match menu selections

If you are using research in your newsletter, follow APA guidelines for citing your sources. Use standard in-text citations just as you would for other papers. Your references should go in a column or section titled references, and should follow standard APA requirements for references. Contact your instructor if you have additional questions regarding APA requirements. Visit the APA Guide for help.
