The Black Rock Beacon is tickled a rosy pink to be announcing our 8th year serving Black Rock City with crispy and chewy morsels of news, views, and totally tangential references to pork-related products.
We will be producing five issues during the week to entertain and inform the record population of our Burning burg. The paper is produced onsite, using decade-old computers and a press in the back of a van.
Beacon Burnalists have already begun to gather information for this year's papers but we are hungry for more. We have a long list of stories we would like to do, and we need writers to do them. There are also openings for editors, production people, illustrators, schwag-starved delivery folks, and if you're good at assembling Playatech furniture, we need some extra chairs.
If you know us and love us from past years, please consider making a donation to support our work. We would like to increase our press run; paper and ink are among our largest expenses, and the population keeps growing. We are also in the market for an approximately 40' by 20' tarp or similar shade structure, and we're willing to talk donation, rental, loan, or purchase.
No money? No time to volunteer? No problem. We exist to serve Black Rock City, we are happy if you read our paper. You can also drop by our camp just to say hi, we will be located in Center Camp, 1:15 the Inner Circle of Center Camp, right across from the Cafe. Our City Desk will operate all day and late into the night, you can come by and discuss the news of the day, what you would like to see in the paper, and whether fried or baked is the better approach.
If you want to join us, see our website at www.blackrockbeacon.org for information, shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or come by for our daily team meeting at 10:30 a.m. at our camp. Donations can be made via PayPal or credit card on our website.
