Submissions are requests for coverage, or sending a finished piece in for review.


Requests for coverage require a date, time, location, event/topic description, relevance to USU, AND relevance to a general audience. Without this information it will be difficult to make decisions on whether The Pulse can cover your event/topic.
Subject line should read: Submission, request, your topic

Due to limited resources, submissions will be covered and published at the discretion of The Pulse staff.

To submit, email: news@usuhs.edu

Finished Piece

A finished piece is any article, video, list, interview, etc. submitted to USU News for review. USU News Staffers will review finished pieces and contact you with further details regarding your piece. In your email, attach all relevant media - this includes all text and accompanying media (pictures, video, etc.). Photos and videos should be attached as separate files from documents. Sending in a finished piece does not guarantee publication by USU News.

How do I submit?
To submit, head over to our Contact page. Be sure to read the submission guidelines so your submission can be handled as quickly as possible.

Can I request USU News cover an upcoming event?
Absolutely. If you're involved in an event you think we should cover, let us know! If you attended an event that already happened, have quality photos (or videos, or you made an infographic, etc.), and want to submit a story about it, we'd welcome your submission.

Can I submit a finished piece?
Yes, but it must fit our writing style guidelines and content calendar. Articles, lists, interviews, and other written pieces must be written in the proper writing style. Photos, videos, and infographics must be high quality.

I submitted something and I haven't heard back.
We're working on it! USU News staff is covering stories in every school and center at USU and there never seem to be enough hours in the day. If it's been a while and you haven't heard anything, feel free to resubmit.

Why wasn't my submission approved?
USU News creates content calendars at least a month in advance. This is to ensure important events and stories are covered, and to give our content creators enough time to create quality posts. If you submitted an event too close to its occurrence, we may not have had the resources to cover it. If you submitted a piece that wasn't approved, it may not have fit our content style guidelines.
