Can I send my press release to all your publications
All of our newspapers, and many of our magazine titles,
are regionally or locally based. They are interested primarily
in stories which have a very specific local angle. A general
press release with no local angle is not really of interest
to them. This is why we do not publish a complete list of
editors' contacts on this website. You can find relevant
contact details through our titles' own websites which are
listed and linked on the Publications
