The Roosie

Jump to Roosie Archive

About 2,000 copies of The Roosie newsletter are published monthly, with the exception of December, June and July, although special editions are often published on those dates as well.

Roosevelt residents who volunteer to be “blockheads” deliver the newsletter to doorsteps in the neighborhood. Copies are also available at several local businesses, including Whole Foods Market, Starbucks, the Dakota Arts Store and others. We do not distribute by US mail but you may request to be notified when the electronic edition is published.

Local advertisers help pay some of the cost of the publication. Membership and tax-deductible donations help cover the rest. The UPS Store on the corner of 12th and 65th is also generous in its support by discounting the cost of the production.

Please send an email to the Roosie Editor to:

  • Subscribe to be notified when the electronic edition is published
  • Learn more about the newsletter
  • Volunteer to be a Blockhead
  • Suggest or write an article (see guidelines below)
  • Advertise in the newsletter (see guidelines below)
  • Article Submissions
    Articles submitted to the newsletter are subject to standard editing. They should be of specific interest to the Roosevelt neighborhood, should be between 300-400 words, and are published on a space-permitted basis. Articles that follow the above guidelines but are too long for the newsletter may be published on the website.

    Advertising Submissions
    Ads are accepted on a space permitted basis. Our guideline is to include 1/4 page of advertising per each page. e.g. a 4-page Roosie will contain the equivalent of 1 page of ads.

  • Deadline: last Sunday prior to month of publication.
  • Delivery: The Roosie will be delivered by 4th Tuesday of publication month.
  • Rates: $30 per month for 1/8th page; $55 per month for 1/4th page. Ads must run 3 months.
  • Specifications: electronic only, 300 dpi JPEG or PDF, black and white only.
