General Advice for Getting Your Article Published in Your Local Media Outlets
Source: http://www.great-business-websites.co.uk/advice-centre/get-published-in-your-local-newspaper
  • The story must be local, very local. If you are trying to get in the Belper News it must be a story concerning a person or business from Belper.
  • All stories should be accompanied by a photo of a local person (very desirable), make sure the photos are not bigger than 1MB in size.
  • You do not need to write a finished article (that's what the newspaper pays their reporters to do), just provide the facts. Think about how much space you are likely to get for this type of article and provide roughly the right amount of words. (In the case of business articles in local newspapers usually 100-150 words, possibly 250-300 words if really interesting)
  • Put the words of your article in the body of the email, rather than an attached document.
  • Make sure the subject of the email contains which paper you think your article is relevant to (it may be the group editor scanning through 1000's of emails and this helps).
