Writers on the Range has been a godsend for the Las Vegas Sun, filling a critical need for columns on regional issues of importance to our community, to Southern Nevada and our entire state.
Although the Sun is well-served through contracts with the New York Times News Service and Tribune News Service, the columns we receive from those syndicates tend to focus mostly on national issues. That’s where Writers on the Range has been invaluable to us. The group’s focus on Western issues – water conservation, the drought and climate change, environmental protection for fragile desert areas and more – allow the Sun to provide its audience with content that illuminates and adds to the public dialogue
The Sun strongly supports the group, and hope it continues to operate for years to come.
