OhioAuthority.com Commenting Policy
OhioAuthority.com welcomes reader comments and aspires to create a community that encourages visitors to join the conversation. Before you comment, keep in mind a few simple guidelines. These aren't too different from the basic rules of respect and civility that apply to any social gathering, so they should be easy to follow.
A good comment provides insight, additional information on the topic at hand, intelligent critique, humor or courteous disagreement. A poor comment is one that includes personal attacks, vulgarity, inflammatory remarks or obviously spammy self-promotion. OhioAuthority.com reserves the right to moderate comments and to refuse or remove comments deemed to be in violation of our policy. In short: Behave like an adult, and you will be treated like one.

As OhioAuthority.com’s name suggests, we are concerned with stories that affect our region of the world. Our scope of coverage seeks to connect our readers to the community with contemporary coverage of the region’s best and brightest from the culinary world, arts and entertainment community and fashion scene, plus the latest on home and garden, health, education and more. This may take the form of feature stories, profiles, short columns and essays, in addition to photo essays, podcast and video segments. We do not typically publish stories about big business and sports, or works of fiction.
Our readers are active in their communities and well read. They keep abreast of current events and news, so pitches and manuscripts must present a compelling story with character, style and voice that offer well beyond a simple recitation of facts.
Crafting A Pitch:
Please familiarize yourself with the tone and style of OhioAuthority.com’s editorial before submitting a completed manuscript or pitch. If you are unfamiliar with the elements of magazine writing versus newspaper reporting, blog writing, etc., please review your submission carefully prior to submitting it for consideration by OhioAuthority.com. Please note that unsolicited completed manuscripts received by OhioAuthority.com do not guarantee publication unless expressly outlined in a signed contract with Authority Media LLC.
Any manuscript submitted to OhioAuthority.com should be fact-checked prior to submission and should report the facts, including quotations, with absolute accuracy. All articles will be sent through a round of edits by the OhioAuthority.com staff, but manuscripts should demonstrate sound journalism upon submission.
Please email pitches and manuscripts to the editors below. All pitches should be concise and summarize the scope of the proposed article. The pitch should explain why you are the appropriate writer for the story, in addition to how you would develop the story, including potential sources, places you would travel/visit, etc. Also, please explain the area of the site that you envision your story appearing (Arts, Home & Style, Region, a blog post, etc). If applicable, please attach clips (preferably published) that help illustrate your style. It helps if you can establish your expertise in a particular area.
Please submit pitches/manuscripts using Microsoft Word. If your word processor does not support Word, please note that in the body of your email. Do not paste copy into the body of any mail. Please provide a phone number and email address where you may be contacted.
