Helpful Tips for Submitting an Item

Don’t Forget the Details. Make sure all relevant information is included with your submission. When promoting an upcoming event, make sure the time, date and place of the event is included, as well as any other details the audience should know.

Include a Picture if You Have One. Posts that include an image perform better than those that only include text. Photos that are relevant to news or events will increase the likelihood more people will see your item. Pictures should be sent as their own file, not embedded in a Word document.

Pictures Work Better Than Posters. If you had a poster created for your event, consider submitting any image you may have used on it as its own file, rather than the completed poster. Many items in the Truman Today are shared on University social media accounts, which favor images rather than graphic-heavy or text-heavy posters.

Consider Using the Publications Office. Truman’s Publications Office can help student organizations and University departments with creating materials to promote their events free of charge. The Publications Office can also provide images in the correct size for the Truman Today, social media and traditional printed posters.
