General guidelines for submitting a story
Submit an article/writeup about an event, your organization itself, or both. Multiple articles/stories per person or congregation are accepted. (We may decide to space out the posting of them.)

Other notes:
• Content of the article should consist of original content. Quoted work must be credited and okayed for reproduction.
• Please keep content positive, accurate, politically nutral (as much as possible) and avoid negative name-calling or blame placing (etc.)
• While the articles may be of any length, typically shorter (between 3-8 paragraphs) works best for the web.
• Short paragraphs, bullet points and sub headings are best for web reading, since people like to skim articles on the web.
• All articles are subject to editing and approval of the synod office. We reserve the right to make changes in order to fit the above criteria. We also may highlight your story in our weekly email newsletter as well.
