You write a news release and send it to the editor. If you're any good at wording ( or maybe a friend who is) just write a news release as though you are a third party, talking about someone else.
I wrote one, some years ago that started out something like this: Even the mail carrier has no idea what goes on inside the walls of this insignificant little farm house. Inside, there is a whir of activity, piles of mail and Judy, sitting at the typewriter."....and so forth.

The editors love stories like this. It sounds newsy and close to home. Just tell the story (in best light, of course) and add any contact information.

Chances are, you'll be contacted by the editor for an interview.

It has worked for me, numerous times. Especially when it's a local small newspaper. But even the magazines are always on the look for newsy stuff to fill the pages.
