About The Lansing Journal Journeys

The Lansing Journal Journeys is an award-winning feature that showcases people displaying The Lansing Journal in creative locations.

We initiated the series because we are a community newspaper, and we like to see community faces in our pages and community names in our photo credits.

Even though we’re not in print as frequently anymore, you can still participate. If you can’t find an old print copy of The Lansing Journal, bring up our website on your computer or mobile device and have someone snap a photo. Your location doesn’t have to be exotic or far; it just has to have The Lansing Journal in it somewhere! Email photos to [email protected] and tell us:

  1. The names of any people (or animals) in the photo
  2. Some information about the location
  3. The name of the person who took the photo

We’ll publish them online as soon as possible. Make sure you are subscribed, so you see your photos when we post them!
