The WEDGE Newspaper is the official publication of the South Wedge area. It began publication as a one-page flyer in 1978. It grew into the South Wedge Newsletter 1979-1981. In 1982, it morphed again into The S.O.S. News and later that year became The WEDGE Newspaper. It's motto today is, "The WEDGE Gets Read."
The not-for-profit periodical is published by the South Wedge Planning Committee (SWPC), a non-profit organization serving the South Wedge. It is printed bimonthly (February/March, April/May, June/July, August/September, October/November, and December/January). It ceased print publication in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country, but it continues to be printed online and can be found at www.swpc.org.
The local paper covers news about all things South Wedge and beyond in southeast Rochester, SWPC's programs and projects which include the South Wedge Farmers Market, The South Wedge Victory Gardens, and other house projects such as house rehabs for first-time home buyers.
The WEDGE profiles new businesses in the South Wedge and other southeast neighborhoods and offers several columns Lifestyle (writer Michele H. Martell and others) Swillburg Shout out, Community Builders, Business Buzz, South Wedge Creatives and more.
It welcomes submissions from area writers and photographers.
