Your Voice

If you have a news tip, email [email protected]. Please include as much information as you have, including contact details.

If you have something to promote, submit a news release. Please include the following:

  • A headline
  • The when and where – Date and Location for the event or story
  • Who, what, and why – In your news release, include any important information about the event or story that may be interesting to our readers
  • Byline, photo credit, and contact information

Email your news releases to [email protected] in either the body of an email or as a Word attachment. Please attach photos to your email and do not embed them in Word docs. We do not accept PDFs.

We will consider all submissions; however, if you abuse our generosity, Goleta Voice may limit your exposure on our platforms.

If we publish a news release, it does not mean we endorse or agree with the contents or that the Goleta Voice sides with a particular individual or organization. We publish these submissions as a public service.

By submitting any work to Goleta Voice, you warrant that the material is original, not plagiarised, and does not violate any copyright, proprietary contract, or personal right of anyone else.

Have your voice heard! If you have an opinion, commentary, or a letter to the editor, send it to [email protected] and include “Commentary” or “Letter to the Editor” in the subject line. Letters can also be sent via mail to PO Box 1957, Goleta, CA 93116.

Letters should be brief and must include a real name, address, and phone number for verification.

Goleta Voice reserves the right to choose whether or not to publish a submission.

Goleta Voice does not take editorial positions or endorse political candidates or issues. If we have published an op-ed submission, it does not mean we agree with it. The opinions expressed are the writer’s own.

Again, by submitting any work to Goleta Voice, you warrant that the material is original, not plagiarised, and does not violate any copyright, proprietary contract, or personal right of anyone else.

If you have an obituary, email it to [email protected]. Multiple photos may be submitted for consideration, but please ensure they are high-quality photos and do not embed them in Word docs.

All submissions are subject to editing. Submissions will not immediately post online.
