TELLING the incredible stories of the Coffs Coast is what News Of The Area (NOTA) is all about.

The independently owned NOTA launched in Coffs in July 2020, and is proud to keep locals up to date with the happenings of the area.

Now, NOTA is seeking more enthusiastic locals with a background in writing to join the team.

Are you a freelance reporter, current or ex-journalist, or simply a passionate and quality writer?

“If you have a background in writing, and a passion for your local community, I would love to hear from you,” said NOTA Group Editor Douglas Connor.

“As the paper continues to grow, we are always looking for enthusiastic wordsmiths to help cover the region’s news, sport, events, music etc.”

Writing for NOTA can be an amazing way to connect with your local community, to meet some of the awe-inspiring locals creating change in the area, and to learn and experience the unique elements of life on the Coffs Coast.

NOTA Reporter Andrea Ferrari said, “I absolutely love my role reporting the news and especially connecting with the people.

“I have met so many kind, generous, interesting, and community-focused individuals in my work, it heartens me to be able to share their voices, good works and fun events in the paper.”

Writing for NOTA is flexible, with contributor reporters able to submit as many or as few stories per week to fit in with their present lifestyle and commitments.

News Of The Area was recently named as a finalist in the Outstanding Stand Up category of the Mid North Coast NSW Business Awards, while Client Account Manager Gaye Conway and Group Editor Douglas Connor were named as finalists in the Outstanding Employee and Outstanding Young Business Leader categories respectively.
