Submitting News, Letters, and Photos
The Provost News is a weekly community newspaper that welcomes news, photos and letter to the editor submissions from the public.

News columns over the years have been popular for readers and can be submitted by correspondents from neighbouring towns or villages.

We also welcome information from local councils, groups, schools, clubs, churches and individuals. Wedding anniversaries of 50, 60 or 65 years or beyond are of interest to readers. All items are subject to editing.

Generally we have subscribers in these (plus other) areas that readers will enjoy seeing your submission: Provost, Hayter, Macklin, (Sask.), Chauvin, Bodo, Cadogan, Metiskow, Amisk, Hughenden, Czar. We also sell newspapers on area newsstands.
