The Sun Day is proud to be a newspaper for all residents of Sun City and Edgewater, offering exclusive content found in no other paper or website. In order to do this, we need your help! Below are the types of submissions we receive and the methods by which they are processed.

Hang Your Hat
Got something to say about the Sun Day? We want to hear it! The Sun Day prints letters to the editor, or “Hang Your Hat” as we call it with reader comments on everything from our stories to community events and thoughts on current events. Only entries with a first and last name included will be published.
This section was created for events and activities that are open to the entire community, regardless of who is hosting the event. They appear in our You’re Invited section near the back of each edition.
The Sun Day has a special section called Political Place which houses all of our political submissions from readers. Whichever side of the fence you are on and whether it’s state, township, or federal government you want to talk about, this is the place to do it. We also accept notices of political events in this section. Only entries with a first and last name included will be published.
We can’t cover all events, so we created the Resident Reporter, a section where community members can “report” on a recent event they attended or a happening that occurred that they would like to share with the community. Please limit to 200-300 words, and include your full name, along with captions for the photographs submitted.
Club, Neighborhood, and Special Interest Group Submissions
We want to have the chance to report on all Club, Neighborhood, and Special Interest Group events and activities. Each week, we have a limited amount of space to profile these in briefs called News Quicks which appear throughout the paper. We generally take submissions for News Quicks on a first-come, first-serve basis, trying our best to match the event to the appropriate edition. News Quicks may be run more than once if space allows and the information remains relevant.
Other Story Ideas/Press Releases, Recipes, Poetry, Artwork, Jokes
We value your contributions and want to ensure that all community members have the opportunity to have the Sun Day feature what interests them most. Only entries with a first and last name included will be published.
We will occasionally edit submissions for clarity, grammar, length, and content.
The submission deadline for all categories is the Thursday before publication. We ask that you make mention or resubmit if you would like your submission to run for more than one edition, space limiting.
Thank you all for your wonderful ideas and contributions. Please keep them coming!
