As our readers know by now, content for The Bedford Citizen comes from a variety of sources: volunteer writers and photographers who submit a wide array of stories and pictures, paid reporters regularly covering town boards and committees, and press releases from organizations such as the Police Department, the Bedford Garden Club, and many other civic and cultural groups. Our volunteer sports writers provide excellent coverage about school and community teams. Many thanks to all these diligent contributors.
The Bedford Citizen is always on the look-out for good stories reliably reported about the many aspects of our community life. Ever thought about writing something yourself?
There are many stories waiting to be written that other readers would enjoy hearing about. For example, would you like to interview a Bedford resident who has an unusual hobby or expertise or has made a significant service contribution to Bedford? We’re hearing a lot about a new group in town called the Neighbor Brigade. Are you part of it and/or would you like to provide us with an article that tells readers what it is and how they might participate? Or is there some other story you think needs sharing that we haven’t even thought of.
We’re looking for pieces with a human interest twist that are helpful and appealing to Bedford residents. Letters to the editor about your personal opinions and observations are always welcome, too.
If you’re interested in learning more, or if you’re already ready to write, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with Writing for The Citizen in the subject line. If you have a writing sample you’d like our editors to review, please attach it as a document. If you don’t have a sample ready to share, please be in touch anyhow and we will work together to figure it out. Your work will be reviewed and edited (with your participation) to be approved for publishing in accordance with standard guidelines and policies of The Bedford Citizen.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
