If it's an event, it's probably a good idea to add the event to the Jobs and Events Calendar
. This is free and is displayed on our main page as upcoming events.
If you would like to promote yourself or an upcoming show, then a front-page feature story is a great way to let our readers know about you and/or your event. You can contact the editor (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and if we agree, then we can do a story. This typically includes our staff interviewing you by phone or in-person, taking some photos or using some publicity photos that you provide.
A quicker way, would be for you to write the story and include a photo. Then simply submit
your story, and if it's well-written, has wide-appeal, and is just cool, then we'll approve the story.
