We encourage a broad set of writers to impress and amaze us. After reviewing our guidelines below, please email submissions to [email protected]com or complete the form below. Here is a transparent look at how we assess and assign stories.
How to pitch: Let us know what kind of article or feature you are pitching (review, reported, investigative, opinion) and what your ideal word count would be. Give us a brief outline of any current events, happenings, products, or reviews you would like to cover, and why this topic is relevant and important.
Albany Daily Star runs a range of posts and features on our website. For stories reacting to breaking news, be prepared to provide same-day revisions after receiving requested edits. If your pitch is time-sensitive, please be sure to indicate that when submitting.
An editor will review all submissions and contact writers directly if interested. Once your submission is approved by an Albany Daily Star editor, we will schedule your feature for publication within two weeks.
