Share a Story Share a story General guidelines for submitting a storySubmit 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.
