New Times / Calendar Guidelines
To appear in the print edition of New Times, an event, its start date, its end date, or a relevant portion (for example, an art show may be listed from "The beginning of March until the end of April") must fall within 10 days of publication. Exceptions may be made at the calendar editor's discretion (i.e., for events that sell out quickly, requiring advance notice). No one-time event will be listed for more than two consecutive issues of print. Ongoing events may exceed this listing limit, however it is up to the calendar editor to determine how long any event will be listed.
The description field for any event listing may not exceed 250 characters. Deadline for submission is one week before the issue you want to be in.
It is ultimately the calendar editor's decision as to which category an event will be listed under. Generally, however, listings will be grouped as follows.
Film and TV
Writers and Literature
Sports and Wellness
Lectures and Learning
To appear on the New Times website, an event must have a start and/or end time, a start and/or end date, or be an ongoing or recurring event.
Exceptions may be made at the calendar editor's discretion. The description field for any event listing may not exceed 250 characters.
