From Fallen London Wiki
Newspaper.png

Once you have your own newspaper (i.e. Typewriter.png An Editor of Newspapers at least 10), you can work on publishing a new edition. See the An Editor of Newspapers page for a guide and the requirements to get your own newspaper.

Start the process by going to Doubt Street and Get those blasted things running, which will give you Clock.png 12 x Hour before the Deadline (it costs Birdie.png 1 x Whirring Contraption which are usually obtained in Wilmot's End searching for a Missing Woman). See below for various options you can try at different levels of this quality. Based on the options, you'll start collecting 3 types of Copy: Newspaper.png Meritorious, Newspaper.png Outlandish, and Newspaper.png Salacious.

Once Hour before the Deadline reaches 1, it's time to Start the presses! and choose the type of edition you want to print. The edition types available to you will depend on how many of each type of Copy you've managed to collect.
