Thank you for your interest in Today Magazine
We want to publish as much news from the Valley community 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
• For monthly magazine — 1st of month
Send your news and events a month in advance — by the 1st day of the month for the next month's issue — to have the best chance of being considered for our upcoming monthly magazine ... for example, by June 1 for the July magazine.
• For Today Magazine Online — our dedicated Internet-focused news vehicle — send your news literally anytime.
We expect to receive more news than we can fit in each monthly magazine, but we’ll do our best to include your news. Three specific categories:
Email milestone business news such as launches, renovations 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 Farmington Valley residents and/or organizations.
Email events that are open to the public. In order for your event to be considered, follow the basic format in this example:
Today Magazine editor-in-chief Bruce Deckert has received
five SPJ awards in his career. His two SPJ writing awards in 2020 include a first-place honor for his cover story on local volunteer fire departments.
SPJ = Society of Professional Journalists

• 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.

If the financial fallout of the COVID shutdown or other factors interrupt our print edition, we would publish a digital-exclusive magazine — but our goal is to publish a print edition every month
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 elsewhere on our website, while past digital editions are above. Plus, we post our digital editions across social media, including numerous Facebook pages that reach the five core Farmington Valley towns.
We also publish our award-winning content in Today Magazine Online, our Internet-focused news vehicle.
