There’s arguably no better source of information on everything Newport County than you. Whether you live here, visited for a weekend, or simply drove in for a memorable day, we want you to share your memories with us; your favorite restaurant, beach, event, hiking trail, or even secret spot to watch one of those unbeatable Newport sunsets – we want to hear it all. Write it up, take some photos, or get it on camera. We’ll choose some of them each month to post on our blog, our Facebook page and our Twitter account.

How to Submit a Post

You can email your submissions to blauro@discovernewport.org. Here’s what we’ll need from you:

  1. First and Last Name
  2. City and State
  3. Optional: Twitter handle (If you’d prefer not to be mentioned in the tweet promoting your post, please let us know!)
  4. A short bio – just a couple sentences so our readers can get to know you.

For written submissions:

  • 300-500 words. Your post must be an original piece and cannot appear, or have previously appeared, anywhere else
  • 4-6 photos you want included in your post (These muse be photos that you have taken yourself)
  • Any relevant links to mentioned businesses, attractions and/or events

For photo submissions:

  • 4 or more high-quality photos (Again, these must be photos you have taken yourself)
  • Captions for the photos

For video submissions:

  • More more than 5 minutes of video
  • A description
  • Upload your video to YouTube and email us the link

 

Happy blogging!
