About us

From the Editor:

Due to the demise of the Myall Coast NOTA in April 2014, a few of us ‘locals’ have decided to deliver a free newspaper on a weekly basis for the Myall Coast Community.

Myall Coast News Ann Scully

This has been my passion since I left the Myall Coast NOTA three years ago and now this exciting opportunity has come my way.

The newspaper will be called Myall Coast News of the area.  It’s affectionately known as the Myall Coast NOTA funny enough.

The Myall Coast News is published weekly with 4000 copies printed.

Distribution is in bulk drops to businesses and pickup points in Hawks Nest, Tea Gardens, Pindimar, North Arm Cove, Karuah, Nerong, Bulahdelah, Carrington and Stroud.

My personal motivation to take on a project of this type is that I have twenty years experience in publishing (six years at the NOTA and fourteen years at Nightingale Press in Newcastle).

I also hold a Diploma in Publishing, Editing and Proofreading.

I have many media contacts from graphic artists, to printers, to contributors.

I am passionate about our community and want to see our news being circulated by local people.  It is vital that our community has a medium whereby news, stories, events and happenings can be relayed to everyone in the community.

Lastly, I do hope that you will support the Myall Coast News and please feel free to submit stories, articles and photos.

“When I started work on Myall Coast in 2011, I hardly knew the area, soon after I felt part of the community and by the time I left for my overseas adventure in 2014, I called the area home.”

“The Myall Coast has such a unique and special community. There are characters from all walks of life making it such a colourful place. This is a passionate community with many residents who truly stand up for what they believe in, making it such a fascinating place to work.”

“The variety of topics I covered on a weekly basis could range from interviewing the world’s oldest university graduate, keeping on top of some of the state’s most significant environmental issues to watching a community fight to stay afloat and thrive after the new bypass.”

“After travelling the world, I can still say with complete conviction that the Myall Coast is one of the most beautiful places on earth.”

“Many of the opportunities I was lucky enough to engage in during my year overseas, stemmed from the Myall Coast. The Rotary Club of the Myall Coast gave me the opportunity to go on a job exchange, working as a journalist in the UK. I was then able to work for two weeks on Peter and Kerry Hodges French Connection tour in the south west of France.”

“I knew this community would quickly open an independent paper after the Fairfax owned NOTA folded. It’s the type of community with a great sense of get up and go. I’m happy to see the community has still been receiving their news. For the time I am working for McNOTA I will continue keep you all informed on everything that is happening within your community.”
