Thank you for your interest in submitting
a local article to Natural Awakenings.
Your Local Article is free. You do not need to pay on the payment page. We can't guarantee your editorial will be published.
Here are some guidelines so your article is
ready to print!
The deadline is the 5th of
the month prior to publication (i.e. July 5
for August issue).
Your article should be educational in nature,
with tips and information to our readers that
can help them live a happier, healthier life.
While this can dovetail into what you do to
help people, it is not self-promotional.It should have less than 500 words, and it will be edited for style and space needs.
We might be able to use a high resolution
graphic of at least 300 dpi to go with your article. We can work with
smaller lower resolution photos, but they don't
print as well. Please send separately to Publish (at) MileHighNaturalAwakenings.com. (due to spam, we have disabled all email links. Please copy and paste the address into your email and substitute (at) for the symbol @ as in normal email protocol.) and
reference "Local Insight: your business name".
If the information you are
submitting is not educational, please submit
a news brief instead.
If you aren't sure, please email us at Publish (at) MileHighNaturalAwakenings.com. (due to spam, we have disabled all email links. Please copy and paste the address into your email and substitute (at) for the symbol @ as in normal email protocol.)
our editorial guidelines [pdf]
An example of
a great local article.
Hints to writing your local article:
- Write in third-person news style (them/they/those/people/attendees).
- Use action verbs (i.e. ABC offers; not
ABC is offering).
- Your original work might
be edited to fit our magazine's style.
What we want:
- We focus on hope, healing, practical
tips and benefits.
- Attribute all medical or health
claims and scientific
study results; cite credible,
What we won't publish:
- Depressing lists of symptoms and technical
details of treatment.
- Marketing or sales copy heavy on blatant
- Extended, first-person (me/I/my) accounts
of life journeys.
STOP! Is it past the 5th of the month? Did you read the editorial guidelines? Those may be reasons why your article might not be published.
