We love publishing your local news, events, articles, news releases, restaurant reviews, opinions, fundraising events, and more. Our only requests are that the article relates to an Arizona City or Town and that it is written in such a way as to engage our readers.  We also ask that your article be a minimum of 300 words so that it trends well on Google. There is no maximum length.

We review all news article submittals and gauge them against our news values and guidelines. If your article is selected, it may be edited for quality, clarity and appearance, then posted to our site along with Facebook, Google+, Linkedin, Instagram, Twitter, Tumbler, Redit, Stumble upon and variety of other social media sites.
