Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, inter-generational readers reading THE RAVEN FINAL FOUR across the fifty-six counties it is found in, will have been entertained, inspired, and informed by Northwest Minnesota artists. Evaluation will occur as replies are received from the Audience Survey forms enclosed after the end of the project, as well as our notes of personal observation throughout the project including informal comment and critique we receive through email, on our website, and Facebook pages.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Data indicated renewal numbers were in decline in 2017-2018, comparison to renewals in 2016-2017. An aging audience is thought to be an indicator. We sent questionnaires in each of our issues to subscribers, asking them to renew or letting us know if they would not. Thanks to Legacy funding, our 24th year of publication on a positive note. Local bankers, participating artists, and subscribers, sent heartfelt emails or made personal effort to express their regret that we stopped publication.
