        Be sure to NOT include the prefix http:// and www.

      2. Short description of your event. Keep it to one or two paragraphs.

    5. Optional: You may attach a file to your event for users to download. However, it is not recommended you use this option instead of the description, but as a supplement. Be sure to always include the description (previous step). This will assure that the event is accessibility compliant.
