Contact/Submit Your News Release

How to Submit a News Release for an event or story to XPian News
(Thanks to for the basic framework of this summary.)

The basic rule of thumb is this: KEEP IT SIMPLE.

  1. Write a 1-3 paragraphs about your event, including the date, time, location and cost.
  2. Include a link for more information and maybe a sentence or two about your group.
  3. Do not use bullet points, bold, CAPS, tabs or any other formatting.
  4. Submit 2-3 weeks before your event or 1-5 days for a news story.
  5. Do not send in PDF. Either send in a Word document or in the text of the email
  6. Attach (not in the document itself) 1-4 pictures that represent the event, including a logo or flier if applicable
  7. Email to
  8. Make each event a separate email if possible. A whole list is more difficult to work with.
  9. Be patient with XPian News please. This is a new and an ever-growing part of the site. If we miss you or mess up it is not intentional. Please keep sending them in and we’ll keep doing our best!
  10. When we post events, we’ll try to remember to send you the link. It helps when people share links – be it from your event or other stories you like. Consider the XPian News a community site that we are all working to build, and please help us do that.
