This is real news. Just to be clear on that point.

Wikinews is here for its contributors. If you know of a story you think deserves coverage — especially if you're dissatisfied with its coverage by the mainstream press — by all means read WN:PILLARS and WN:SG and try your hand at writing an article about it. Our initial learning curve is steep but short, and we're happy to help a contributor making an earnest effort to climb it. (Although, don't pin your heart and soul on your first article; any one article might or might not make the grade, so try to get it to publishable, and learn from the experience, but be willing to take the experience if you don't get the publication — as one long-time contributor has put it, "don't marry the article".)
