The Houston Chronicle editorial staff receives hundreds of requests for stories and event announcements every day. Because space in the newspaper is limited, our editors must prioritize which items to include. The timeliness of information and its potential interest to the Chronicle’s broad readership are our editors’ major criteria in determining what to publish. Unusually interesting or significant news presented to the appropriate editor in a concise, complete format has the best chance of being included in the newspaper and on chron.com.
