How do I submit?
To submit, head over to our Contact page. Be sure to read the submission guidelines so your submission can be handled as quickly as possible.

Can I request The Pulse cover an upcoming event?
Absolutely. If you're involved in an event you think we should cover, let us know! If you attended an event that already happened, have quality photos (or videos, or you made an infographic, etc.), and want to submit a story about it, we'd welcome your submission.

Can I submit a finished piece?
Yes, but it must fit our writing style guidelines and content calendar. Articles, lists, interviews, and other written pieces must be written in the proper writing style. Photos, videos, and infographics must be high quality.

I submitted something and I haven't heard back.
We're working on it! The Pulse staff is covering stories in every school and center at USU and there never seem to be enough hours in the day. If it's been a while and you haven't heard anything, feel free to resubmit.

Why wasn't my submission approved?
The Pulse creates content calendars at least a month in advance. This is to ensure important events and stories are covered, and to give our content creators enough time to create quality posts. If you submitted an event too close to its occurrence, we may not have had the resources to cover it. If you submitted a piece that wasn't approved, it may not have fit our content style guidelines.
