The Guilford Gazette is an all-volunteer quarterly magazine that is mailed to every Guilford household. That’s a big commitment for the four or five regulars on the staff, who take care of editing, production, advertising, printing and mailing it to every Guilford home. If you are new to town, or have not been receiving your Gazette please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address.
Guilford Gazette Submittals
To all Guilford Non-profits:
The Guilford Gazette is now on a quarterly publication schedule. We hope to be able to publicize your events and fundraisers; the Gazette is mailed to every address in Guilford.
Below is our publication schedule and submission deadlines. We hope this helps, we know it is quite a time lag. We hope that this chart will help you plan.
Event listings for the Gazette Calendar should include date, time, name of event and organization, cost, place, and contact information. A longer press release will also be printed, please write up separately.
We will also publish photos with captions (high resolution please), and articles up to 500 words.
Please send submissions to: email@example.com
Gazette Submission Deadlines

Please note that while we aspire to print on these days, we are a tiny group with hectic lives, these dates are plus or minus a week or so. Events that fall on the cusp between issues can be printed twice.
Let us know any other way we can help you with publicity.
Here’s how you can help:
• Prepare the printed newspaper for mailing by helping us with labels. If enough people show up, this only takes a few hours and it’s a chance to socialize and get a sneak preview of the paper! Contact Cathi Wilken at the library [802-257-4603] to find out how you can help.
• Send in articles. This is a chance to let us know what your group, organization or business is doing in Guilford! Or perhaps you’d like to share a reminiscence, poem, or story with your fellow Guilfordites. Just limit your entry to no more than 500 words. You can submit articles to the Gazette by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can send a printed copy to Susan Bonthron (108 S. Belden Hill Rd., Guilford, VT 05301), or Gazette c/o Guilford Free Library (4024 Guilford Center Rd, Guilford, VT 05301). Please DO pay attention to deadlines!
• Join our staff. If you have an interest in becoming a staff member who can help with editing, advertising or production, we’d love you to join us at our “second Thursday of the month” meetings at 9 AM at the Guilford Country Store. Meetings start on time and last no more than one hour.
• Donate. The Gazette always welcomes donations of any size. They help pay for postage and printing. Checks made out to The Guilford Gazette should be sent to Guilford Free Library, 4024 Guilford Center Road, Guilford, 05301. Thanks in advance for your help in keeping our town newspaper alive and thriving!
