Press to adapt new business brief policy


The Dickinson Press has provided an opportunity for business notes—reader submissions of new hires, promotions, recognitions and more for individuals, companies and organizations.

The Press will continue to provide an outlet for these important community news briefs but on Sept. 17, the Press is beginning a change.

Moving forward, people will be able to submit their own business notes online and include photos for a small charge. The Press will no longer edit business notes submissions to fit for content, grammar and copy style. The online option will allow readers to submit the copy they want to include. Up to 7 inches of copy will be available for $25 with each additional inch of copy available for an additional $10 fee. The fee will cover the cost of printing.

For items submitted by 5 p.m. Wednesdays, there will be a guarantee the submission will be printed in the following Sunday Press Express, which is something that couldn't be done previously. As submissions are entered, they'll be posted individually online with their own headlines instead of being combined in a single list for that week. A link on The Dickinson Press homepage will provide access to the business news submissions, where readers may include the text and submit photos.

We know this will be a change, but we hope it will be one that provides readers with more options to include the information they want to share with the community at a nominal cost and a quicker publication than the process currently allows. Please call the publisher Harvey Brock if you have any questions.
