Preferred formatting for submissions to the Events Page of PresbyKirk.
The preferred formatting follows the pattern of most of the entries on this page. They open with the day and date, include the identity of the hosting congregation or organization, and then cite the particulars of location, time, event details, cost, registration process, website link, etc. This information can be submitted in a Word document or in the body of an e-mail. Additional supporting documents may include posters, registration forms or brochures. The ideal file format for supporting documents is .pdf but we can work with whatever you supply. Announcements that follow this protocol can be posted almost immediately. If you simply provide .pdf posters etc. then the process of extracting and reformatting the information is substantially more time consuming and may slightly delay the posting of the event.
