NPQ’s Week in Review

Good Morning! It’s a brand new day and news is more participatory than ever before. NPQ is part of that new day.

NPQ is a network made up of you and tens of thousands of other readers and correspondents. This participation from our readers brings a breadth of perspective and knowledge to what we do. In our newest feature, “NPQ’s Week in Review,” we will be highlighting this engagement – whether it is in the form of tweets, comments, or contributed articles and Newswires. Our hope is that your engagement will grow over time, allowing NPQ to reflect your wisdom in our pages.

NPQ’s Week in Review is new and will change over the next few months in response to your suggestions.

We especially ask you to note the Now it’s Your Turn section – so we can keep on top of your suggestions for topics to be covered.

Happy Monday!
