Interview – share your story


Looking for some free publicity? We just might publish your interview! Preference will be given to Foothills County locals, but everyone and anyone is welcome to submit an interview. Keep reading to learn more!

If you’re a business, artist, author, organization – basically anyone who could benefit from some extra publicity and letting the world know more about you and what you do, then we’d love to feature you in our Q & A style interview.

Please answer the questions in the sections below that feel appropriate for you. Think of them in terms of what you do (don’t worry about the wording of them being too literal, aim for the concept of what the question is asking, not how it’s asking it). So if you’re an artist and the question says business, swap the word business for artist and answer in that context.

Treat these questions as if we’re sat together having a conversation – how would answer me personally?

We require the minimums for each section to be answered. You’re welcome to answer more, but please don’t answer them all. Our goal is to produce interviews that are both informative and entertaining.

Q: How long do my answers need to be?
A: Entirely up to you. They should be as long or as short as they need to be to convey the message.

Q: Can I submit more than one interview?
A: Sure, why not. However, we will only run additional interviews for the same person/business when we don’t have any other first timers waiting. And, you have answer completely different questions each time.

Q: Can I do this old school? I don’t want to submit a form online.
A: You bet. Download the Word Doc with the button below.
