The Daily Yonder is dedicated to uplifting the stories of rural people. But rural America is a big and diverse place, and we can’t do it alone. That’s why we make our stories available for others to reuse and share with their audiences.

We encourage you to republish our stories and simply ask that you follow the guidelines below when doing so.

Look for the “Republish This Story” button on an article page and give it a click to make the process fast and easy.

The button will handle the heavy lifting for grabbing our content while honoring these guidelines. If you need more information, you can review our complete republication policies below.

Credit the Daily Yonder

Please attribute the story to the Daily Yonder in a clear and visible way. Consider the text below a good model.

  • This story was originally published in the Daily Yonder. For more rural reporting and small-town stories visit

Be sure to also credit the author in the byline, and consider adding “The Daily Yonder,” as in the example below.

  • Tim Marema / The Daily Yonder

Link back to the original article. For print publications, a link to our homepage is appropriate.

For online publishers, we ask that you also consider making the link to our original article the canonical URL, if possible. This is a typical function of most SEO tools, but if you don’t know what any of that means, don’t sweat it.

Note: Using the republish button found on our story pages will provide you a copy of the article text with attribution language and links already included.

Don’t Make Major Edits

Minor changes accounting for references to time and place are acceptable, as are small edits to match the editorial style of your publication. Beyond that, the story should run in its entirety as it appears on our site.

Check the Finer Details

While our original content is free to share, sometimes we are the ones sharing stories and content from others. Some of these items may have limited copyright. Below is a quick guide on some common situations and limitations.

If a story is already republished from somewhere else, you’ll need to get permission from the original creator to use it (and you’ll want to credit them too). We mark these stories at the very top with the message, “This story was originally published by…” We also typically note this in the author byline (e.g., Madison McVan / Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting).

Many of our republished stories come from organizations that have similar rules to those used by the Daily Yonder.

Note: If a story is not immediately available for republication, we will not include the republish button on the story page.

Confirm that the photos and images in a story are available before using them. You are free to use images created exclusively for the Daily Yonder. These will often be labeled “Daily Yonder photo,” “Daily Yonder illustration,” or “for the Daily Yonder.” You may also use any images clearly marked as falling under a Creative Commons license.

Photos and images from the Associated Press (AP) or noted as provided to the Daily Yonder “courtesy of” another source are not available to be used for republication.

When in doubt send us an email at and we are happy to help.
