We love to hear from our community!
If you have an article or press release, please submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have an event you’d like to include in our Whats Happening, please submit it to https://valleyevents.ca/.
At this time, we are not able to offer compensation for submissions. If an author is attached to a local business, we are happy to list that at the bottom of any published article by that author.
Editorial content is informative, educational, or entertaining, such as news, reports, editor’s comments, letters to the editor, photos of an event, a column ‘presented by’ a subject matter expert, city and zoning notices, entertainment such as games, comics and caricatures. We’re an upbeat paper with the aim of supporting the community, so we don’t aim to publish anything that is critical of a local business, person, or organization. We aim to publish original articles only — we ask that articles submitted are the original work of the writer intended for our publication only.
Editorial content is NOT promotional and does not promote any business or organization’s services, products, or brands. It is not classifieds, ads or advertising, or coupons. We also do not tend to publish articles that offer any medical advice that may contradict what an individual’s healthcare provider may suggest.
Word Count: We ask that you try to keep the word count to 300 words maximum. The longer the article the less chance it will be picked up and published. We reserve the right to edit it for content and length if necessary.
Photos are accepted. With a maximum of two photos for articles. If you do not have a photo, you can request a stock photo. Very often we will add one if it is not supplied. If you are including a photo this will affect the size of the space needed for your article. File types: JPG/JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PSD, AI
Submission Deadline: The deadline date for editorial content is the 3rd Monday of the month. If that date falls on a statutory holiday or weekend the deadline rolls to the following business day. Early submissions are preferred.
Please note that while we try our best to get all community submissions in the paper, we sometimes do not always have room.
