    To NFocus readers, development officers, and social planners:

    Thank you for being such an integral part of NFocus. It’s your sense of fun and commitment to philanthropy that makes the magazine such a delight to produce each month. Here are a few tips for getting your event covered by NFocus, finding NFocus, and advertising in NFocus.

     

    How can I get Nfocus to cover my event?

    Send our Editor an invitation! (Laura Snyder, 301 E Main St., Ste. 201, Louisville, KY 40202). A printed invitation not only tells us where to be and when to be there, it gives us a sense of the party and helps us convey the event to our readers. We only cover charity and nonprofit arts events. While we don’t cover walks and runs, we will list them on “The Scene,” our events calendar.

     

    How can I advertise in NFocus?

    Contact our Publisher, Pam Brooks, by phone at 502-895-9770, ext 217, or by email at pbrooks@southcomm.com.

     

    How can my business be a distribution point for NFocus?

    Contact our Circulation Manager by phone at 502-895-9770 or by email at csparrow@southcomm.com.

     

    How do I get my event listed in “The Scene” or on the web site calendar?

    Email our intern at nflintern@southcomm.com. In your email, please include date, time, location, benefiting nonprofit, and any other fun facts we may need to know!

     

    How can I get my wedding in NFocus?

    To Nfocus readers, development officers and social planners:

    Thank you for being such an integral part of Nfocus. It’s your sense of fun and commitment to philanthropy that makes the magazine such a delight to produce each month. Here are a few tips for getting your event covered by Nfocus, finding Nfocus and having your event included in Pencil N.

     

    How can I get Nfocus to cover my event?

    Send us an invitation! (210 12th Avenue S., Ste. 100, Nashville, TN 37203)

    It not only tells us where to be and when to be there, it gives us a sense of the party and helps us to interpret the event to our readers. And lets us know whether it’s black-tie, for pete’s sake. Our first priority is highlighting major charity events. We occasionally crash private parties, but only when we have a fresh manicure.

     

    How can I get my wedding featured in Nfocus?

    For consideration for Nuptials or Taking Vows, please email us at weddings@nfocusmagazine.com. We accept submissions from photographers, brides/grooms, families of the bride/groom and event planners. With your submission, please include the following: a link to your wedding photos and/or a hi-res image (300 dpi) of the couple; the bride and groom’s full names; details about the wedding; information about the couple’s involvement in the community; and the name of the photographer. Please be patient as we do receive a lot of submissions.
