Editorial Guidelines

Please submit your press releases and articles via email:
– Copy/Text should be sent as an email attachment saved as a Word Document, NOT in the body of the email message.
– If you have an image, please submit it as an attachment as a .jpeg file. Resolution should be at least 100 dpi for a quality image.

Once we have your documents, we edit for grammar, spelling, and general flow. As part of this exercise, we end up spending a lot of time reformatting most articles to remove extra line spaces, carriage returns, tabs, spaces, font attributes, etc.

Please help us by editing your own articles prior to sending them in to us:
– Do NOT use double spaces after a period. Use a SINGLE SPACE after punctuation at the end of a sentence.
– Do NOT indent or “tab” your paragraphs. A simple “return” works best.
– If you have an image, please provide information about who took the photo and a description of the photo.
– Check your punctuation and grammar!
– Place punctuation inside quotation marks. Example: “We’re proud to participate in this year’s event,” he said. “It benefits everyone.”
– Use your SPELL CHECK before submitting your article.

We set up EVERY article as follows:

GRAFTON, Vt. – In Montpelier today, Governor…
Thanks for your help!
By editing and proof reading your own articles before sending them in to us, we can spend more time on things that will improve the overall quality of the paper.
