Thank you for your interest in Today Magazine
Today Magazine covers the heart of the Farmington Valley — the five core Valley towns of Farmington, Avon, Canton, Simsbury and Granby.
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
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 the next issue ... for example, by June 1 for the July magazine.
• Calendar FYI — The 1st is a soft deadline for our Calendar ... if you miss this deadline, send your events anyway and they might still be included.

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, 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, 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.
Today Magazine editor-in-chief Bruce Deckert has received
