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.
Editorial Deadlines
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.
Editorial Sections
Fly Magazine's editorial is divided into four main categories: "Out & About," "Bar Scene," "Dining Out," and "Stage & Screen". These sections are described below.

In addition to the above listed sections, Fly Magazine often includes special sections such as party listings (i.e. St. Patrick's Day), seasonal information (i.e. deck and patio reviews), an original comic strip, advice column and more.

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, contact the Fly Magazine office.
The Cover
Fly Magazine's cover subject is selected by the editors. The decision is based on several factors including the strongest, most interesting feature and the best photographs. The cover, like all editorial is not available for purchase and or influenced by advertising in any way.
