Sunday Stories is gearing up for the holidays and we want our readers to join in the celebration. Throughout the holidays, we will feature themed pages showcasing your favorite holiday photos and stories. There are basically two ways to get involved:
Share your stories.
From your favorite holiday traditions to those famous (or infamous) bleeps and blunders, we invite you to share your stories with us. If you have a picture that helps illustrate your story, send that in too. We'll take the best stories received each week and showcase them in Sunday Scrapbook. The word count for stories should not exceed 300 words.
This month and next, we are particularly interested in stories about cherished family traditions, holiday bloops and blunders, favorite holiday activities and regional festivities.
Share your photos.
Throughout the season, we also invite you to share your favorite holiday photos with us. From family outings, holiday parades and visits with Santa to decorations and wintertime fun, Sunday Stories offers readers an opportunity to share all of their favorite holiday memories in Sunday Scrapbook. From the Santa Train and other Christmas parades to school and church plays, family gatherings and holiday decorations, we welcome your photos.
Are you ready to get started? Well, then grab your camera - or even your iPhone - and take some photos. The photos should be sent in jpg format, and should be approximately 5 x 7 in size, resolution 200 dots per inch, or a total file size not less than 1 megabyte. Be sure to send the photos as attachments to an email, and not as a link to any outside site. Make sure you identify the folks in the picture, so that all your friends and family members will recognize them in the scrapbook.
Make sure to include your name, as the person submitting it, and a phone number or email address where we can reach you just in case we have any questions. (Don't worry, though. We won't publish that part!)
Email your contributions (along with your name and address) to: email@example.com.
Or mail them to: Holiday Scrapbook, Attn: Carmen Musick, Kingsport Times-News, 701 Lynn Garden Drive, Kingsport, Tenn. 37662.
We're looking forward to seeing the smiling faces of kids from 1 to 92 as we celebrate the season.
