Editorial Submissions

Natural Awakenings Welcomes Your Participation!

Every edition of Natural Awakenings features numerous local News Briefs and Kudos about events, businesses and practitioners. Our magazine also features national Health Briefs and Global Briefs that go into our more than 80 affiliate magazines, as well as Health Briefs submitted by our local experts.

Your editorial submissions are what make Natural Awakenings a community resource for holistic and natural living. We want our readers to get to know you. Submitting editorial for one or more of our departments provides you with the opportunity to share knowledge and bring focus to your business.


NEWS BRIEFS – Just as the name implies, a News Brief is a timely, newsworthy item that typically makes an announcement to readers. Whether you’ve opened a new office, have a special event coming up or are offering a new therapy, we want to hear about it. News Briefs must be written in third person and relevant to our subject matter. This is not an advertisement and should not be written as such. We reserve the right to edit all submissions.  The News Brief submission deadline is the 15th of the month. Cost $199.

KUDOS - Do you have someone in mind who deserves special recognition for a recent achievement? Did you just pass your licensing exam? We want to let everyone know! The Submission deadline is the 15th of the month prior to publication. Cost $199.


Health Briefs highlight the latest research studies, trends and tips in easy-to-digest articles of 50 to 250 words. Each focuses on a particular topic, such as food, supplements, self-care, beauty, balance and fitness. Submissions should always contain doable solutions or pertinent research findings on common conditions or health issues. Cost $199.


Community & Business Spotlights - Each month we include a feature article about someone who is contributing to the local community in special ways or highlight a business or practitioner to allow readers to learn to know you better! Ask how your business can be featured.
