If I were a paid editor, rather than a hobbyist that sometimes has free times and gets excessively interested in things, the I'd require contributors to:
1 Provide a parallel text at least chunked/matched up by paragraph, preferably by sentence, but that could make for some awkward English translations.
2 Provide a phrase glossary for any clever noun or verb phrases, or creative single word uses
3 Provide an interlinear gloss for any clever sentences.
Some years ago there were punks in my town who made a fanzine, in paper. I always wonder why they didn't make an internet version
If you want to create a newsletter, I would recommend doing it online in a format similar to a blog. Since there would be multiple authors, I don't know if a blog would work; (I think a blog only allows 1 contributor). You could use a wiki like Wikia, http:/tokipona.wikia.comwiki/lipu_lawa (which already has some pages in toki pona) so that everyone could contribute. There are other free wikis as well.
We are such a small community, that we shouldn't scatter ourselves in many separate areas. This forum should remain the central meeting place. For a while I would post my diary entries here in the forum to get feedback and corrections, and then post the corrected text in my blog.
I think the biggest problem would be getting enough authors to contribute, so the newsletter would take on a life of it's own. I find that I am so busy doing other things, that I only occasionally write in my toki pona blog.
