Corporate and For-Profit Organizations: $300
Non-Profit Organizations: $150
NLGJA Member Authors: $100

Length: We request that news releases be limited to no more than 800-1,500 words. You will not, however, be charged by word count or length, and lengthier submissions are possible.

Format: Please upload your press release in Google Doc or Word format. Press releases uploaded in PDF format cannot be processed.

No attachments: At this time, we cannot accept nor include attachments such as photographs, PDFs or additional documents. We invite you to post attachments on a website, and provide journalists with the link to additional press materials as you choose. This service will rely on text-based copy.

Press contact identified: Each news release also must include the correct name, telephone number and email address for the relevant press contact to allow media inquiries and follow-up. We will not respond to any press inquiries on your behalf.

Languages: News releases may be transmitted in any language; however we are unable to offer translation and will presume most news releases will be transmitted in the English language, but that is not required.

Hours of distribution: Our service will remain accessible 24/7 year-round; and from a practical matter, news releases will be distributed Monday-Friday during normal work hours except that no releases will be made during U.S. holiday schedules. If there is special urgency or timeliness, distribution arrangements may be made outside our standard hours. If received in a timely way, your release customarily will receive same-day service Monday through Friday throughout the year.

Confirmation: Following distribution, you will receive a confirmatory email signaling satisfactory transmission to the OutNewsWire list.

Media Tracking: At this time, we are not able to offer media tracking or clipping services.
