Please keep in mind the following when submitting your ad:

  1. Make your advertisement short and easy to read. If you have a large amount of text, please link it to an external website. We reserve the right to truncate or not publish your ad if it is too long for the Murmur layout.
  2. Don’t forget to include the name and contact information (e.g. email) in your submission, preferably at the end.
  3. Plain text is prefered over attachment. If you really need to submit an attachment, add a link in plain text to your attachment using your hosting services.
  4. Refrain from:
    –  Creating too many paragraphs
    –  Having a long title that contains more than the name of the event
    –  Submitting an English AND French version of your ad
  5. Keep your submission clean and professional.

All the rules aim to have a clean and easy-to-read layout for the newsletter. If you need to submit content that do not follow these guidelines, we encourage you to submit a short summary of your ad with a URL linking to a more detailed version of your submission.

If you are having any trouble submitting the form, please verify that your date is in YYYY-MM-DD format, and if still having trouble, please use Chrome or Firefox instead of Safari.
