Submission Guidelines General


We appreciate your work and taking the time to send us material you think would benefit The Echo World readers, and that you want to share. We look forward to reading, or seeing what you have sent. We do not have the possibility to print everything that we receive, but we will do our very best to get back to you as soon as we can with our response. Please read the guidelines before you send.

Article Guidelines

If you wish to submit an article it must be a general topic which benefits our readers. We do not accept self-promotional material. We accept submissions of 200 to 1000 words. Shorter articles will be favored. We only in very special cases print articles over 1000 words. Submit a bio of 30 words if you submit a 200 to 500-word article, and a 60 words bio if you submit a 600-1000-word article. The bio may contain your company name, contact info and a link. We charge for advertorial articles. You can purchase any size ad with chosen text and images that will be laid out as an article, but we will place the word Advertorial over it or in it.

We are interested only in original material. But do feel free to post you article in any media once it is printed. We reserve the right to edit or alter any submission if we feel this will be an improvement and will best serve The Echo World readers. Usually we will consult the author of said changes, but due to deadlines and resource limitations, we might not always be able to do so.

We look for articles that are uplifting, life-improving, mind-stretching and informative. We cover a broad range of topics: spirituality, creativity, ecology, environment, health and politics. We favor alternative slants. Our readers are generally spiritual “seekers”. We give special consideration to Central Virginia writers. We feel Central Virginia has a unique and special kind of energy and want to spotlight it in many of our pieces.
