Send your information in plain text, with an image or icon if possible. You can also include a link to further information or registration forms.
Questions and submissions should go to Byte@medinapta.org.

Guidelines for Special Edition Bytes

The publishing of special editions of the Byte will be based on the following considerations:
  • There is new content that is substantively and substantially different than what has already been published in the Byte.
  • There is a sudden change to a program or event due to unforeseen circumstances such as a school closure, weather-related problems, etc.
  • There is new information that is available after the publication of a Sunday Byte and needs to be published before the following week's Byte (such as updates to the amount raised toward fundraiser goals).
  • There is important, timely, and more detailed information about a program or event that is too long to publish in a regular Byte (such as the audition information for the Missoula Children's Theatre).
A special edition Byte will not be a reprint of a submission that has already been published in the regular Byte.  Also, a special edition Byte will not be sent out to remind people about events or activities. The only exception may be for Friday night events as these would occur a week after the publication of the previous week's Byte.
If you have an idea for a special edition Byte, please email the Byte co-editors at least two weeks before the requested date of publication for approval. Decisions will be made within a few days on a case-by-case basis.
If the request is approved, please submit the content (in the form of text, graphs, photos, etc.) at least one week before the requested date of publication to allow the co-editors sufficient time to edit and format the special edition Byte.
