The Washington Post Sunday - - CLASSIFIED -

To Our Read­ers:

Start­ing next week­end, you will see a num­ber of en­hance­ments to your Sun­day Post. The changes are aimed at bring­ing you more news and fea­tures on arts, cul­ture, lo­cal events and shop­ping, to com­ple­ment the es­sen­tial lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional cov­er­age you get in our main news sec­tions. We’ll also start de­liv­er­ing a ro­bust new pack­age of our Sun­day sec­tions on Satur­day, to give home sub­scribers more time to en­joy the paper. The biggest change you’ll see is the sep­a­ra­tion of our Arts & Style sec­tion into two new sec­tions. One, Sun­day Style, will be a lively, en­ter­tain­ment-ori­ented sec­tion fea­tur­ing cov­er­age of movies, tele­vi­sion, mu­sic and fashion — the pop­u­lar cul­ture that shapes so many of our week­ends. In­side the com­pact sec­tion, you’ll find in-depth sto­ries and pro­files, along­side many fa­mil­iar fea­tures and some new ones. Style In­vi­ta­tional and Celebri­tol­ogy will move from the Satur­day Post to Sun­day Style, where they will ap­pear along­side new pop-cul­ture book re­views, wed­dings cov­er­age in OnLove and pop­u­lar ad­vice col­umns by Carolyn Hax and Amy Dick­in­son. In ad­di­tion, you’ll find two new col­umns: Deal­hunter, a weekly re­view of the best lo­cal bar­gains for shop­pers, and Web inSites, an off­line look at what’s in­ter­est­ing on­line. The Scene is a new gallery of pho­tos from the Washington area so­cial scene. The other sec­tion, Arts, will of­fer a deeper and more fo­cused show­case for our award-win­ning cov­er­age of theater, opera, art, dance, clas­si­cal mu­sic, ar­chi­tec­ture and mu­se­ums. Washington is one of the world’s great theater towns, just as it is one of the world’s great mu­seum towns and one of the world’s great mu­sic and per­for­mance towns. The Post has one of the world’s great teams of cul­ture crit­ics, and the new Sun­day Arts sec­tion will serve as a fo­cal point for art­lovers in a city that trea­sures the arts. For younger read­ers, we’ve cre­ated a new Kid­sPost tabloid, ex­tend­ing a pop­u­lar fea­ture of the daily Post to the Sun­day paper as well. The sec­tion will of­fer sto­ries, games and puz­zles in a pullout sec­tion tai­lored to young read­ers and wrapped around the Sun­day color comics. All of these sec­tions, along with Travel and the in-depth lo­cal sto­ries in The Washington Post Mag­a­zine, plus Pa­rade mag­a­zine, will be de­liv­ered to­gether on Satur­day morn­ing — a day early to be more use­ful and en­hance the week­end read­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. A new Sun­day Real Es­tate Guide will fea­ture a use­ful clip-out guide to each week­end’s open houses, and our Satur­day paper will in­clude a stream­lined Real Es­tate sec­tion that will in­cor­po­rate our Where We Live fea­ture. One more change to note: In your re­vamped Sun­day Busi­ness sec­tion you’ll find fresh and com­pelling cov­er­age of lo­cal and na­tional busi­ness topics as well as big-pic­ture sto­ries to keep you in­formed, whether you’re an ex­ec­u­tive, em­ployee, in­vestor or con­sumer. Col­umns and fea­tures will also pro­vide in­sight for per­sonal in­vest­ment and spend­ing de­ci­sions. This ex­pan­sion of con­tent and con­ve­nience is de­signed to bring you more of The Washington Post’s ter­rific jour­nal­ism, all week­end long. Please let us know what you think at sun­day@wash­post.com.
