Local Newspaper addresses for advertising placement

As a rule of thumb most publications require information at least two weeks prior to the event. Make the information clear and concise. List Date, Place Time, Ticket Price, Ticket Outlets, Telephone Number for information and any special features of the event. Including a publicity photo may help get the event featured. Remember the more publicity the greater the possibilities for success!
