GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROPER SUBMISSION
for non-profit groups: Profit groups are invited
to email us for rates.
2. Singles activities only:
please only submit activities that are for singles only. Do not submit
something like Faith Hill to
Sing at Kemper unless your singles group is going to the event
willing for other singles to go with your group.
3. The deadline:
none, just submit it when convenient.
4. Limit/month: 3 major
open events (evemts MUST be open to singles outside your group)
5. You MUST submit in paragraph form: use
upper/lower case, plain (no bold or italics) 10 or 12 pt., Times
black on white (no colored ink or background). This
will enable us to simply copy and paste without having to rearrange,
resize, refont, or reformat your submission so that it conforms to the
submissions. Again, if your material is not submitted according to
these specs, it will be returned for corrections which may delay it
beyond the deadline date and cause it not to be used. Please DO NOT
send us a brochure and expect us to create the paragraph for you.
6. Proof your work before
sending: One of the biggest mistakes people make when
submitting material via email is not to proof their work
for clarity and typos before sending it. You do not want inaccurate
wrong addresses, or typos in your submission. And we don't want to have
to go back in and correct the work once it's been posted. So, please, please, double check
your work and even have someone else do so as well before sending it
in for posting. Thanks!
