Featured Events Submission Guidelines

Featured Events:
A Weekly Guide to Events of Public Interest

Featured Events is a listing of University lectures, performances and exhibitions of interest to the general public. It is distributed to all news media in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts, including calendar and listings editors. For additional information, contact the Featured Events editor at (401) 863-2478.

Guidelines

Only events that are sponsored by, hosted by, or held in collaboration with a Brown University office, department, unit, school or student organization will be considered.

Events must be open to the public and able to accommodate at least 200 people.

Events that have not been entered into the University’s online calendar will not be considered for “Featured Events.” (Go to online calendar)

Featured events must have a broad appeal and be of interest to the general public. Inclusion of items is at the editor’s discretion. Due to the heavy volume of requests, not all events submitted will be posted.

Please make a frank assessment of your event’s “broad appeal and general public interest.” If your likely audience is predominantly campus-based or if you expect fewer than 100 people, Morning Mail allows you to reach all or parts of the campus audience with your announcement and would be a better choice than Featured Events.

How to submit an event

Featured Events will be published every monday morning. Deadline for submissions is noon of the previous Friday. No exceptions.

Submissions must include time, date, place, sponsoring group, contact person and brief description of the program. Incomplete entries will not be considered.

If tickets are required, please specify where and when tickets can be purchased.

In the event of changes or cancellations, it is the responsibility of the contact person to inform the Featured Events editor.

Items that meet the above criteria can be e-mailed to featured_events@brown.edu or sent by campus mail to Featured Events Editor, Office of Media Relations, Box R.

Call (401) 863-2478 with questions.
