To Submit An Item For Publication
We place items for local non-profit organizations, community events/fundraisers, items about local residents, etc. as a free service. As such, we do not guarantee placement, but will do our best to honor local requests in as timely a manner as possible. In addition, we very strongly suggest that dated items be sent to us a minimum of 3 to 4 weeks prior to the event in order to allow us sufficient time to prepare and place the release in queue for publication.
We will consider photos for publication. Photos should be sent to us as jpg files and at 250 to 300 dpi.
When requesting publication in multiple papers, we ask that you submit your item to only one paper. At that time, you may request publication in additional paper(s). As this is a free service, we can not make a guarantee of placement. Our policy is to place local items first and foremost. Other items will be placed at our discretion as space allows.
The best way to submit an item for consideration is via email. Each paper has its own email account based on the paper’s firstname.lastname@example.org. For example, The Manchester Times, email@example.com; The Jackson Times, firstname.lastname@example.org. To reach The Southern Ocean TImes, e-mail Linda Siemon at email@example.com
Items may also be faxed to us at 732-657-7388.
Or they may be mailed/dropped off in person to:
All items submitted to Micromedia Publications are subject to editing and placement at our discretion.
For any questions about submitting a press release, please call 732-657-7344, ext. 202.
