General Editorial Information
Fly Magazine maintains separate editorial and advertising
departments, and while the two may often complement each
other, all decisions on editorial are made exclusive from
advertising decisions. All editorial decisions are based
on relevance and interest to the reader - submission of
information does not guarantee coverage in the magazine.
Fly Magazine maintains strict editorial deadlines
in order to maintain an effective and efficient editorial
department. To increase your chances for editorial coverage,
please notify the Fly Magazine office with your
information as soon as possible, even if all the details
are not finalized at that time.
Fly Magazine's editorial is divided into four main
categories: "Out & About," "Bar Scene,"
"Dining Out," and "Stage & Screen".
These sections are described below.

a compilation of local restaurants listed by category.

Calendars and Listings
As a service to the readers, Fly Magazine publishes
event calendars and directories, such as the dining directory,
at no charge. Information included in calendars and listings
must come from host establishments and must meet certain
other criteria. To include your events and/or establishment,

the strongest, most interesting feature and the best photographs.
The cover, like all editorial is not available for purchase

One employee from an area bar or restaurant is featured
each month. Fly Magazine's Employee of the Month
