How can I get the Media to publish my story?
Journalist have the job of taking everyday stories and bringing them to the forefront with words. Over the years the media has been hit hard with the emerging digital age and many journalist have had to find work elsewhere or find another craft. For a story to get the attention of the editor or journalist it has to have feeling and make people want to know what, who, why, when and where. Stories that are often published are things that no one would expect to happen. It's strange but most people seem to love a good story that they can discuss with others. If you want to get your story out there sometimes it helps to have a reporter or editor at your local media outlets that you are familiar with, this usually helps. It is also helpful to release a press release and follow up especially if it is an event. Try to keep in mind that freedom of the press is for the public to bring certain issues to center stage.
