About the Heights Observer
The Heights Observer is a nonprofit community publication written by community members, and focused on the cities of Cleveland Heights and University Heights.
The Observer has no writing staff. The articles the Observer publishes are written by volunteer writers who submit stories about the Heights news, personalities, events and issues that interest them.
The Observer’s only reporters are those in the Heights community who take the time to write about some aspect of the Heights, and share it with others via the Heights Observer. Some Observer writers are regular contributors; others may submit an article once a year, or just once.
Is there an article about the Heights that you would like to see in the Heights Observer? If so, please consider writing it, or work with friends, neighbors or colleagues to submit an article.
If you’re writing a news article, be clear and factual, and keep your opinion out it. If you want to express an opinion, submit a letter to the editor or an opinion piece. Make sure whatever you submit has a hyper-local Heights focus.
To submit a story, go to www.heightsobserver.org and click on Member Center at the left. If you haven't submitted previously, click on Become an Observer, also part of the left-side menu, and read the information there, including the Style Guide, where you will find guidelines regarding article length and options for type of article (news, opinion or letter to the editor). If you have questions, call the FutureHeights office at 216-320-1423 or e-mail email@example.com.
The next print issue deadline, for articles to be considered for the August issue, is July 14.
