Guidelines for Submitting a Press Release

 

Voice Magazine receives dozens of press releases every week. Unfortunately, we cannot publish all information. However, a few easy guildelines can help ensure that your release gets to the right editor and will increase your chances of publication.

 

Defining a press release:
A good press release is a brief, complete description of an upcoming event; a timely report of a recent event; or a notification of personnel or important changes within an organization.
