Get your food or wine event in the paper

September 3, 2013 

There is a new way to submit events to The News & Observer’s features sections calendars using Our process is easy and will let you post events online and submit them for possible publication in print in one step. Food and beverage events also appear on the Mouthful blog, We no longer accept listings via email or fax for arts, entertainment, faith, or home and garden calendars.

Here are the steps to follow:

Type into your search bar (no www).

Register or log in to the website.

Click on “add to our listings” (upper right side).

Fill out the form. If the venue where your event is being held is not in the system, you’ll have to add it. Follow the prompts.

Helpful tips

Before you enter your event, you may want to search for your event to see whether it is already entered. Do this by scrolling your mouse over the word ENJOY. A drop box will then open. Click on EVENTS, then type in your event where it says SEARCH EVENTS. This process helps to eliminate duplication of your event.

Keep your entry short and informative. Include who, what, where, when and why.

To help editors find your event for possible inclusion in Weekend; Life, etc.; or Home & Garden, use the keyword that best fits your event: Fun Stuff, Books, Literary Event, Food & Dining, Cooking Classes, Farmers’ Markets or Wine. This should be typed in the KEYWORDS section as you add your event.
