For a listN,OPXPVSEFBEMJOFT'PSBMJTU ing in GO, we require two weeks' JOHJO(0 XFSFRVJSFUXPXFFLT notice prior to publication.

NPOUIT JOBEWBODF Learn how to write a good press release.

PGUIFFWFOU IJHIMJHIUJOHBOZUIJOHUIBUTOFXPSVOJRVF If it's a concert, play or art exhibit, note the genre. If it's *GJUTBDPODFSU QMBZPSBSUFYIJCJU OPUFUIFHFOSF*GJUT age-restricted, note that too. BHFSFTUSJDUFE OPUFUIBUUPP DON'T do the following: load up the press release N%0/5EPUIFGPMMPXJOHMPBEVQUIFQSFTTSFMFBTF with canned quotes (we probably won't use them), conXJUIDBOOFERVPUFT XFQSPCBCMZXPOUVTFUIFN DPO struct it so we have to read the entire release to search TUSVDUJUTPXFIBWFUPSFBEUIFFOUJSFSFMFBTFUPTFBSDI for the essential information, or use the press release as GPSUIFFTTFOUJBMJOGPSNBUJPO PSVTFUIFQSFTTSFMFBTFBT an excuse to unleash your inner Hemingway.
