We may direct some items to different channels (such as social media) or we may contact you for more in-depth coverage.


What Do I Send?

Most submitted items appear as one sentence blurbs in a section called "InTheKnow." Therefore, they must have an actionable component so that readers can learn more or take action. For example a URL, a link to a form, email links, or even a phone number.
