My suggestion is to have two separate lists. One remains
announce-only, to which the moderator posts. The other is a
discussion list, which any subscriber may post to.
The alternative is to convert the announce-only list to a
discussion list. To do that, all you need to do is to turn off the
moderation bit for all your existing subscribers. Then any
subscriber can post.

There is the Mailman web interface. That is usually the best way
to try to manage a Mailman mailing list.
