  • Put a little note in each article saying they can email you questions for future articles. Have a catchy email name set up.

    Can you just make up some juicy questions or have some friends write some for you? I would do it for you if I knew more about the types of questions you need....

  • If there are no questions to answer you could write an advice tip. Something about marriage, money, etc. Then list your email address for questions.

  • If you're just starting out, you may need to make up questions for the time being. And, as the others said, include an e-mail. Ask for submissions, don't assume people will automatically know.

  • Talk to the marketing department of the newspaper
