Promoting Local Writers

LafayetteCoSettlersPromoting local writers is another function of this website. Not only do we wish to be a comprehensive resource for anyone wishing to visit and possibly even relocate to the area but we would like to let everyone know that we have some pretty great authors living here as well as great farmers, timber people and places to camp and swim. To that end we have created an Amazon Affiliate mini-store (TOM AStore) page that gathers together books and other products for and about Mayo and Lafayette County Florida.

Student Reporters and Business Websites


We have finally gotten our website filled out with lots of information about Lafayette County Florida. And now we are looking for Student Intern Reporters and Guest Reporters to write about events, sports, business and general happenings within the county.

Each student intern will be responsible for their assigned area, research their own articles, interview their subjects, take pictures and write their own articles. Each intern will receive credit for their writing and a letter of recommendation at the end of their term of service. We prefer that the students be living in Lafayette County Florida and between the ages of 16 to 18. Those under 18 will need a parent’s signature on the application before being accepted. Each reporter needs access to a computer, the internet, a digital camera (or decent camera cellphone) and love to write. The interns will only have to post one article a week each as well as do their own editing, arrange the pictures on the post, updated our pages when necessary and promote our website and the articles to their friends and family.
