Livability.com's homepage includes general content featuring stories focused on livability principles and how these principles are making cities great places to live. Even when dealing with serious topics, we try to find a positive angle and highlight the successful strategies, etc.
These stories should include the provided key words and be entertaining, informative and socially-shareable. As much as possible, they should also be regional and appeal to all ages (i.e. no slang or city-specific references that readers from other locations won't understand).
Writers have broad latitude to secure their own sources where needed. The number of sources is up to the writer; please contact Becky Henson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are unable to secure a source within 48 hours of the assignment.
In some cases, the writer may be asked to secure a photo(s) for the story. Please request/acquire horizontal photos only; high-quality JPEGs are preferred. If you ar unable to upload the photos yourself, email photos with the article name and photo credit information to Becky, and be sure to include a photo description. Contact Becky within five days if you're having trouble securing a photo.
