WHAT WE COVER
Statewide means what it sounds like — stories as relevant in Valentine as they are in Nebraska City. These are issues that touch all of us. Think: the environment, legislative policy, universities and more.
HISTORICALLY EXCLUDED »
For decades, traditional media has overlooked, well, a lot of people. We set out to do the opposite. One fourth of our stories should focus on black people, brown people, immigrants and our native communities.
We can’t cover a state while ignoring its two largest metros. We leave space to tell stories about people, businesses and institutions in the metropolitan areas. We include metro suburbs in this category.
GREATER NEBRASKA »
We want to tell the stories of all the communities outside our metros, too. Whether they be plain old good yarns or long-term investigations, we’re committing a major part of our content mix to doing journalism throughout the state.
PUBLISH OUR WORK
All work produced by the Flatwater Free Press — articles, videos, photos and other media — is available for publication at no cost.
Our overarching goal is to uncover truth, amplify diverse voices, and enrich life in Nebraska. You can help.
