Submit Your Story
At Texas State, we know there are amazing stories and accomplishments that can and should be more widely shared -- internally and externally -- to help raise awareness of how TXST is impacting the lives of our students, our community and the world.
To make it easier to share ideas that could make a great story, a social media post, a news release, or other content, we’ve created these “Submit your Story” forms. You can quickly submit the pertinent information – who, what, where, when, why and how – or an already prepared article, along with any photographs or illustrations.
Once received, we will contact you concerning how this information can best be used and any next steps to share via web, social media, press release, newsletters, or regional and national publications.
If you prefer to contact us in person, our information is available here.
Due to limited resources, University Communications & Public Relations cannot respond to news tips that do not conform to these guidelines.
- If your submission qualifies for distribution, we will either contact you for more detailed information, or we will edit the information to adjust for the Texas State/journalistic style, present you with a draft of the release, and forward the final release to the appropriate media.
- Please note that while we understand many activities at Texas State are important and warrant attention, not all information submitted will be sent to media. Media release is determined based on news value and determined by the media relations staff. However, we will also consider placing the information in Texas State publications and on the Texas State website, as well as offer suggestions for alternative publicity.
- All information is verified before release, so please provide complete, accurate and timely information. Please type all responses in appropriate upper and lower cases.
All news tips should be submitted in a timely manner. Requests for advance coverage should be submitted at least one week prior to the scheduled event.
