Startup Story and Article Submissions
We accept one-page queries that clearly detail your startup story or other article idea–with special emphasis on the unique feature of the story, your interview access to the main characters, your access to special documents, etc. We look for dramatic narratives, articles about everyday heroes who get an idea and make it into a successful career, project or campaign, or a new business.. Please include a separate page of your writing credits. Please email your article proposal queries to John@SmallBizChamber.org with "Article Query" in the subject line.
Accepted articles will be posted here the first of each month and may also be included in the next edition of our Small Business Chamber Member Handbook which we expect to revise and publish each January starting in 2013. Those who's stories are included will be recognized at our Small Business Chamber Annual Meeting and Ben Franklin Birthday Celebration each year on January 17.
Do you accept fictional material or poetry?
Unfortunately we cannot encourage writers to submit their original fiction as we not a good market for it. For leads to other publications that do publish fiction, we suggest that you consult a copy of Writer’s Market. This and other writers’ references are available in most public libraries.
Can I submit artwork?
We are sorry, but we are unable to accept unsolicited artwork or photography.
