In order to ensure the information is in Readers’ hands prior to an upcoming event, announcements for events occurring in the first half of a month should be submitted for publication in the issue that’s published the month preceding the event.

Please condense your announcement to a paragraph with basic information. Readers need to know:

  • What you are announcing
  • When it takes place (date and time)
  • Where it takes place
  • Why it is happening or who it benefits
  • How to get involved or get more information

Avoid using descriptions like “best show in town” or “amazing event.” These are editorial descriptions which are not suitable for an announcement.
