BIO > Publisher + Editor-in-Chief
Today Publishing covers the heart of the Farmington Valley — we aim to report the underreported upside of the five core Valley towns: Avon, Canton, Farmington, Granby and Simsbury.
See below for submission guidelines for news and our online Today Calendar
• Email: newsroom@TodayPublishing.net
• Today Magazine — 25th of month
For our monthly digital publication, send your news by the 25th of the month to be considered for the next edition — for example, by June 25 for the July edition ... when the 25th occurs on a Sunday, the deadline is Monday the 26th.
• Today Online + Calendar — Anytime
While we receive more news and content than can be published, we want to share as much news from the Valley community as we possibly can — so send us your ideas for cover stories along with your business and community news, events, photos and more. The sky's the limit!
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 as space allows.
Email news related to Farmington Valley residents and organizations.
Email events and programs that are open to the public — for your event to be considered, follow the basic format in this example:
Holiday Concert > if relevant, add prefix Online:
Canton Community Center
• Friday 12/30 – 7:00 pm
Free or $Cost • www.website link
• Register + Info – link • phone • email
Band and choir perform carols and other classics
NOTE — if needed, adjust to fit the program or event ... for example, if no registration link or phone or email is necessary, simply omit them
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 caption information — who and/or what is in the photo.
• 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.
Since the financial fallout of the COVID shutdown and other factors have interrupted our monthly print edition, we are publishing a digital-exclusive monthly magazine
