From The Source: A Curated Content Initiative

Do you have stories to share? “From the Source” offers you an opportunity to share your stories, in your own words. This curated collection invites you to share your press releases and stories as-is, direct from the source.

Not only does this provide additional exposure for local businesses and event hosts, but it also makes sure our visitors are kept up-to-date on the latest news and happenings. It’s a win-win!

Why should I post my stories and press releases on Your Chicago Guide?

Because we’re a trusted resource and thousands of people visit us each month, and thousands more follow us on social media. By posting your press releases on Your Chicago Guide you can get in front of this audience that’s actively searching for things to do!

When you post your press release it will automatically appear in our From The Source section as well as on any individual listings you tag that are referenced in the release.


  • If you’re a PR company, you can share your clients important news.
  • Are you a restaurant or restaurant group? Share your online tip jars and other initiatives you’re taking.
  • Hosting a special online exhibit in your museum? Please share!
  • More examples: book store hosting a virtual author reading, a retail store donating supplies to hospital workers – it’s all news that our visitors want to know.

Our From The Source program is your opportunity to share your news in a forum that your market is already using to find out where to go and what to do.

How long will it take me to submit my article/press release?

Only as long as it takes to copy and paste and add a featured image. Altogether it might take you, at the most, three minutes.

How many press releases can I post?

There’s no limit – post as many as you’d like!

Can anybody share press releases?

NO. Articles and press releases are curated. They’re reviewed within three business days of submission.

How much does this cost?

Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Participation is free!

Where will readers find my submission when it’s published?

We’ve got a section dedicated solely to these submissions. We’ll include some stories with our editorial content on a case-by-case basis.
