Publish to the Newswire

Use the Add an Event form to publish announcements to the calendar. This is for newswire posts.

Never published to the newswire before? Read the publishing guidelines!

Want to show off your photos of an event? Got audio or video that people just have to see? This is the place to put it. We want to hear your story. Use any format you want, from journalistic, to academic, to personal account.

WHAT TO PUBLISH: Please use this form to contribute new stories and ideas. We think comments belong with the story being discussed. So to have your say in response to a story on the site, please use the "add your comments" link at the bottom of each story. Instead of reposting corporate media articles to the site, try posting your own critique or summary, short quotes, and links.

MULTIMEDIA: If your image exceeds 800 pixels in width or 500 pixels in height, it will be resized to these maximums. We suggest that you crop and resize your images yourself to obtain the results you're looking for; a variety of free (libre) open-source software is available for this purpose. If you need help converting your sounds or video to a compressed digital file, consult our tutorial page. For playability of media files on browsers and mobile devices, upload videos as MP4s with H.264 encoding. For audio, upload MP3s.

EDITORIAL POLICY: After stories have been published, they may be edited or hidden by the collective running this site. We generally only fix obvious mistakes, such as typos, or try to improve the formatting. Please read our full editorial policy.

LEGALESE: Unless otherwise stated, all content contributed to this site is free for non-commercial reuse, reprint or rebroadcast. If you want to specify different conditions, please do so in the summary, including any © copyright (or copyleft) statement. Please read our privacy, copyright policy, and disclaimer statements before continuing.
