If you have an upcoming event that is open to the public, you can write a calendar item, which will be sent to local newspapers.
- Events not open to the general public should not be submitted.
- Items should be sent at least three weeks prior to publication.
- Calendar sections in local newspapers have lengthy deadlines; the earlier you can send your notice the better.
- Sending a news release does not guarantee placement; it is up the discretion of the publications.
