Research is not a requirement, as long as you can construct a newsletter that is interesting, informative, well presented and can include six images. This newsletter will contain two major components: Nameplate: The Nameplate is the eye-catcher. It will draw the reader and entice the reader to read the interesting and important information that you have provided. Body: The body consists of items of interest. The stories, along with images will provide information that will peak and keep the interest of the reader. Subscription information is also an important part that must not be omitted.
