Here are some ways you can participate in your hometown newspaper
Here’s a quick list of ways you can participate in your hometown newspaper, The Mantua Sun:
We love to hear about local achievements, from township athletic scores to Scouting awards, calendar items and much more.
The best way to send stories and photos to us is via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no charge for these announcements.
We publish every Wednesday, so we need to receive your items at least one week prior to make deadline. If you have a time-sensitive event, we ask that you submit it at least two weeks in advance to ensure we have time to publish it before the event.
What to send? Stick to the basics of who, what, when, where and how. Be sure to include a phone number or e-mail address if you want readers to contact you about an event. Also be sure to include a phone number marked “not for publication” just in case we have any questions and need to reach you before your item is published. And double-check the spelling of any names.
Photos from a quality digital camera will work well. Just attach them as jpegs to an e-mail.
Wondering if what you have in mind is something we’d publish? Feel free to contact Sean Devlin at email@example.com, with any questions.
But don’t be shy.
If you or your kids have done something noteworthy, send it in. Chances are it’s a perfect fit for The Sun.
