Overview

My Antelope Valley online newsmagazine documents the news which is happening all over the Antelope Valley. We welcome submissions that provide a positive outlook on the AV and work toward creating a deeper sense of community.

Our regularly updated website includes a series of articles focused on a general theme - News, Opinion, Sports, Blog, Comics, Technology, AV News, Weather, and Traffic. Each of these sections has room for a number of time-sensitive articles and others that do not require time-sensitive material.

 

Content

My Antelope Valley is not interested in a constant stream of problems that face our society or community. Instead, we would like to highlight positive news, helpful information, and solutions that will better our community. We are interested in authentic stories that reflect the happenings and concerns of the people of the Antelope Valley. We ask that writers avoid the use of profanity and sexual references in an attempt to promote family-friendly information; and as we report on "negative" news to end those stories with hope and possible solutions to the situation being reported on. We do not endorse any candidate, party, or legislation, although we will cover facts of legislation and political races, to the degree with which they relate to our mission.

MyAntelopeValley reserves the right to accept or reject any submitted piece of work.
