Yet you'd be surprised the amount of time spent on matters involving listings here at Weekly World Central. But I am OK with us spending a lot of effort on listings; after all, they're the backbone of a paper that, like the Weekly, covers a lot of events and entertainment.
Keeping with the spirit of last week's FAQs, here are some answers and tips.
· It's easy to submit listings to us. You can e-mail press releases to email@example.com; you can fill our online form under the City Week section of tucsonweekly.com; you can even fax them (792-2096) or snail-mail them in.
· The deadline for submissions is at noon on the Monday a week and a half before our Thursday publication date.
· Listings are free, but not guaranteed. They have no link with Weekly advertising, and we never promise that a listing will make it in.
· Listings are not meant to be free advertisements. We publish listings of events that we feel members of the public would want to know about; we publish some listings (i.e., for support groups or nonprofits) as a public service; we let the public know about free events; we publish music and club events to help promote the music community; we publish Chow Scan listings (which include ONLY restaurants that have been reviewed positively by a Weekly reviewer) as a public service.
If you have any questions about all this, feel free to ask me at the e-mail link above, or Irene Messina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
