PRINT + DIGITAL
8.5 inches x 11 inches
As Today Magazine covers the tri-town heart of the Farmington Valley, we want to publish as much news from the Avon, Canton and Simsbury communities as we possibly can.
So email us your ideas for cover stories along with your community and business news, events, photos and more. The sky's the limit!
• News Deadline — Send your content and events by the first day of the preceding month to have the best chance of being considered for the upcoming issue ... for example, by June 1 for the July issue.
We expect to receive more news than we can fit in each magazine, but we’ll do our best to include your news. Three specific categories:
Email milestone business news such as launches, new ownership and business anniversaries: one-year, 10-year, 20-year, etc. We want to publish all of your business anniversaries in 10-year increments, but send your five-year increments too and we'll run those anniversaries as space allows.
Email news related to Avon, Canton and Simsbury residents and/or organizations.
Email events that are open to the public. In order for your event to be considered, use the format in the following example:
Canton Community Center
Friday 12/30 – 7 pm
Free • Band and choir, plus
sing-along holiday favorites
• Note — bold type for the name of the event, italics for the cost and the two-line overview.
• Plus — you can send a lengthier press release in case space is available.
Send photos of town landmarks, community events, nature's beauty in your town ... and more! Include info about who and/or what is in the photo. Size: ideally in the 500KB-3MB range.
• LETTERS POLICY
Letters to the editor are welcome. Keep them brief: 100-150 words max. We reserve the right to edit for style and space considerations. Be sure to provide your full name, hometown, email address and phone number — the phone and email won't be published, unless you request this for promotional purposes.
The publisher is a political independent, and that is the editorial stance of the magazine. Letters are welcome from across the political spectrum as long as they are civil and tasteful.
BOTH PRINT AND DIGITAL
Remember, Today Magazine is a print-and-digital monthly publication — the link to our current digital edition is posted above and on our home page, while past digital editions are above. Plus, we post our digital editions across social media, including about 10 Facebook pages that reach Avon, Canton and Simsbury.
We also publish content in Today Magazine Online, our Web-based news platform.
Three towns, one aim — exceptional community journalism.
