Here are the guest column guidelines:
First, we’re looking for original material. Second, it must have a local angle, should be authored locally and written for the local business owner/operator, taking an educational approach. Third, we would like a 20-30 word “mini-bio” of the author and we will print that in the byline in addition to contact information. If you have a photo we can use, that would also be appreciated. The average column is around 500 words, but we are open to something more in-depth as well.
Please note the following. Guest columns run space-available. Sometimes they are not selected to run in the issue for which they were submitted. One does not have to be an advertiser to get a guest column published. We also run both themed and non-themed guest columns in every issue (see the attached calendar for each month’s theme).
Columns should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
