Or, if you have a news release to share there's no need to wait on an editor.
You can instantly share your news with readers by posting directly to the site (no editor needed!).
There are two ways to do. First, go to the boards section for Bethesda-Chevy Chase Patch (ex: http://townname.patch.com/boards).
If you start a blog, you can use that as a dedicated space on the sites to share news, events, photos and whatever else you'd like. You can also cross-publish to nearby Patches, just by going into your settings and selecting nearby towns. This can really broaden your reach.
