The USNF Beacon - newsletter
The Beacon newsletter is published and distributed bi-weekly on Tuesdays, generally on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. The 1st Tuesday issue focus is on communication from the Minister, the DRE, and others; the 2nd Tuesday issue focuses on Committees and General Interest information. The Beacon is generally for articles rather than announcements; announcement should go in the Sunday Times.
Submitting to the Beacon
The Beacon is generally for articles rather than announcements; announcements are typically found in the Sunday Times. Articles are due by 5:00 PM Monday, the week prior to the Tuesday Beacon publication date (8 days in advance). Please see the Beacon Newsletter Deadlines for specific dates.
Article length: 250 word count is preferred; up to 350 words is OK. If the word count is above 350, the editor will discuss with the author. Pictures are encouraged! Please send pictures as separate attachments, not in the body of the article. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org (editors and administrator see these emails).
