Submissions

We welcome your submissions! Submissions should be of interest to the New Gloucester community and meet our editorial guidelines. Please see our Policies page for details about our editorial standards and values.

Events
Our calendar includes local events and occasional regional events that may be of interest to New Gloucester residents. Please send events to events@ngxchange.org. Caitlyn Davison is calendar editor.

Articles or opinion pieces
Email editor@ngxchange.org to submit or inquire about an article or opinion you’d like to share. Send your article or opinion piece as a word.doc attachment to your email.

For articles, we strongly encourage you to include photos, in jpeg format, to help bring your piece to life. See the Photos section below for details. If you are interested in writing a regular report or column, we’d love to talk with you. Joanne Cole, Diane Salisbury, and Deb Smith make up the editorial team.

As a community resource, the New Gloucester Xchange welcomes your opinions.  You can see our general policies on submissions here. We publish letters to the editor and also “In My Opinion” pieces that take a more in-depth look. Opinions are solely those of their authors; publication does not reflect endorsement by the NGXchange or its volunteers.

At election season, a few additional ground rules apply.   We welcome candidate endorsement letters but ask that they not exceed 200 words.  Endorsement letters may be submitted no earlier than 60 days before election day, and no submissions will be accepted in the final seven days before election day. Endorsement letters with a local or personal angle are particularly encouraged. 

Email your letters to us at editor@ngxchange.org   As always, we reserve the right to edit for length, clarity, and accuracy.

Photos
We welcome your original photos of interest to the community. Email photos to photo@ngxchange.org. Decisions to publish are made at editors’ discretion, and we reserve the right to modify and reformat photos for use on the site. We urge submitters to ensure they have permission to share photos of individuals, especially children, in non-public settings. Myriam Babin is our photo editor.
