Crinkling News to close without urgent support

By in Media News on

Crinkling News will stop publishing its youth oriented newspaper unless it receives funding by next week.

Sent around in an email by editor Saffron Howden, the announcement informed readers that the publisher is not far off from covering its costs, but will be closing down without prompt support.

“We are very close to making the newspaper sustainable, but cannot continue after next week without funding to build on the extraordinary work of the last year,” Howden wrote.

Although lacking funding, Howden wrote that the publisher had seen only positive results with audiences.

“The newspaper is a great success and many more readers and subscribers are joining you every day.”

“Crinkling News is changing the lives of young Australians. It is giving them their first taste of real, quality news.”

The email expressed that all subscription payments will be returned if the paper shuts down, and also prompted its recipients to donate to the cause.
