Community Spotlight Submissions

Get in the Spotlight!
 

Each month, we include a feature article about someone who is contributing to the local community in special ways. While we usually interview selected people and write these articles ourselves, we welcome your submissions. You can write a whole article or simply let us know why you think that you or someone one you know should be put into the local Natural Awakenings Community Spotlight.

Community Spotlight Submissions

Community Spotlight should be submitted by email as a MS Word document attachment or text embedded in the body of the email.  Send to PhoenixEditor@naturalAZ.com.

Article Guidelines

  • Length: up to 1,000 words.
  • Deadline:  Due on or before the 5th of the month prior to publication.
  • Articles should be written in layman’s terms, and impart information in a way that does not sound self-serving.
  • We reserve the right to edit all submissions if necessary; for longer features, a copy of revisions can be returned upon request.
  • Please include a brief biography at the end of your article.
  • For the best chance of acceptance, we suggest you review the Natural Awakenings editorial style guidelines by clicking here.

Additional Notes

  • We cannot guarantee publication, and if accepted, we may not publish your piece immediately. If you would like us to keep the submission for future consideration, please let us know when submitting your article.
  • Your original work will most likely be edited to fit our magazine’s style and we reserve that right. If you wish to review edits to your submission, send it at least seven days before the deadline, and be accessible for consultation.
