Sure. I live in Madison, Wisconsin, which has a relatively high
concentration of worker co-ops. Our network (or business association)
is called Madison Worker Cooperatives, which is usually shortened to
MadWorC. The website is madworc.org.

The workflow is pretty simple: people in the organization write the
articles, and I lay them out in Scribus (with a little help from
OpenOffice.org, Inkscape, and the GIMP). We've settled into a pattern
of one co-op feature per edition, with one or two other articles as
well. The newsposters are published every other month, by one of the
local worker co-ops. They are available at
