Republish our stories

We’d love for you to share our stories with your audiences. You can republish them for free under a Creative Commons license unless otherwise noted on the page. Just use the URL or copy and paste the story into your CMS.

Here are the ground rules:

You have to credit Southerly. Ideally, you will use “[Author Name], Southerly” in the byline with a link to our site ( If that’s not possible, please include a line at the top of the story that says: “This story was originally published by Southerly” and include a link to the article.

No republishing of photographs, illustrations, or graphics unless you have permission from Lyndsey Gilpin:

No editing the story, unless you’re reflecting changes in time, location and editorial style. For example, changing, “today” to “yesterday,” or Louisville to Louisville, Kentucky.

No reselling or syndicating our stories. You also can’t republish our work automatically or all at once; please select them individually. Use the Republication tool at the bottom of our stories.

Don’t sell ads against our story. You can publish it on a page surrounded by ads you’ve already sold.

Any site our stories appear on must have a prominent and effective way to contact you. If we send you a request to remove our story, you must do so immediately.

If you share our stories on social media, please tag Southerly. Also credit the reporter, if possible. We want our writers to get credit for their work.
