Next weekend: Your Sunday Post gets better
Starting next weekend, we are making improvements to your Sunday Post to increase coverage of the arts, culture and business by creating several new sections, enhancing others and adding columns and features. We’ll also deliver a new package of Sunday fea
Sunday features that will arrive on Saturday A NEW EMPHASIS IN ARTS The new Arts section will feature stories about theater, opera, exhibits, dance, classical music, architecture and museums, written by awardwinning critics such as Anne Midgette, Philip Kennicott, Peter Marks and Pulitzer Prize winner Sarah Kaufman. We will expand our coverage of the arts community, with book reviews that focus on the arts world and news items from local art institutions. All of this will be illustrated by The Post’s unbeatable team of photojournalists. TRAVEL’S EARLY ARRIVAL The Sunday Travel section also will be delivered to every subscriber on Saturday morning, with tales of intrepid travel from around the globe and around the Beltway. Travel will continue to offer vivid writing and useful tips for readers looking to maximize their vacation dollars, whether they are going to a Virginia inn or on an African safari. KIDSPOST ON SUNDAY KidsPost, already a popular fixture in the daily Style section, will join the Sunday lineup in the form of a four-page pullout section. KidsPost, a longtime favorite of kids, parents and teachers in the Washington area, will help young readers laugh and learn with articles, puzzles, jokes and recipes that families can enjoy together. The new section incorporates much of the content of The Mini Page that currently appears inside Comics, creating a fun section that kids can call their own. KidsPost will reside inside the new Sunday Style section. COMICS MOVES No Sunday newspaper is complete without the comics, and our full array of color funnies will come tucked inside the KidsPost section, at the center of the new Saturday delivery pack of feature sections. All your favorites will still be there, in full color. The only difference: The Comics section used to be delivered inside the familiar plastic pack with the Washington Post Magazine, Parade and our shopping coupons — now it will arrive tucked inside KidsPost and Sunday Style. THE MAGAZINE, PARADE AND COUPONS The Post Magazine, Parade and hundreds of dollars worth of shopping coupons will still arrive in the plastic-wrapped pack. Most subscribers already receive that pack on Saturday morning, but now all will. Also delivered on Saturday: Our new Sunday Style section
SUNDAY STYLE will increase coverage of popular culture in a compact and portable size designed to fit better into busy lifestyles. The section will focus primarily on movies, television and pop music, with stories, reviews and trend pieces by three of the best critics in the business: Ann Hornaday, Hank Stuever and Chris Richards. Joining the section will be two new columns: Dealhunter, a deeply reported look at some of the week’s best local shopping deals; and Web inSites, a smart take on fascinating Web trends. Sunday Style will include book reviews that focus on pop culture, and The Scene, a gallery of photos from the D.C. area social whirl. Popular Sunday features, such as weddings coverage in OnLove and advice columns by Carolyn Hax and Amy Dickinson, will be there, too. Two additional features, Celebritology and The Style Invitational, will move from Saturday to Sunday Style.
Web inSites is dedicated to helping readers make sense of the torrent of ideas and information filling the Web. Okay, you get Twitter and you just about have your arms wrapped around Tumblr. What else is out there that could be useful? What’s new? What’s next? Melissa Bell, who writes BlogPost at washingtonpost.com, will report each week on the latest Web trends, with a special emphasis on the sites and services most useful to local readers.
Celebritology moves from Saturday, bringing some of the smartest and sassiest celebrity coverage to The Sunday Post. Reporters Jen Chaney and Liz Kelly track the latest Hollywood hookups, breakups and makeups, as well as all the latest news from film, television and red carpets everywhere.
Dealhunter will alert D.C. area shoppers each week to a few great deals in local shops and stores. Reporter Holly Thomas will look at deals on services from haircuts to rental cars and offer such tips as how to score the best seat at the Capitals game. Dealhunter aims to provide a service to readers who find their time and wallet squeezed these days — and Saturday delivery means two days to put those tips to work.
The Style Invitational, one of our most original features, also moves from Saturday. The Invitational challenges readers to compete in quirky word games and witty brain teasers.
