Once we have accepted your idea, provide a 40-70 word biography, a high-res headshot, and your social media accounts that you wish to promote along with your story. The bio page gets designed early, so your bio ideally should be submitted before your story is. If you need a high-res headshot, contact us (NOT AT THE LAST MINUTE) and arrange a time with our staff photographer.
