Publishing a news article is a great way to raise awareness and establish credibility for you and your organization. However, traditional news sites decline most stories from local sources because they feel they are either not impactful enough, or are too self-promotional. LA Community News believes these stories deserve to be shared with their communities.
LA Community News is dedicated to publishing and promoting new stories from local businesses, non-profits, community organizations, and public figures. Every article is permanently published on our site, and shared via social media and email.
To be published on our site, articles must adhere to the following editorial guidelines.
- They must be related to a specific event. This event may be a community event, public discussion, business milestone, special anniversary, etc.
- Articles may NOT be defamatory in nature. Positive coverage of you or someone else is great. Negative coverage of others? Not so much.
- Stories must be written in the style of a a news article or press release. Blog-style or incomplete articles will be sent back for revision.
