ENCHANTED CAFÉ BULLETIN BOARD
WEEKLY EVENTS NEWSLETTER
Fuel the Magic of Life! - An Email Newsletter about Local Happenings for... Creative Expression, Well-Being and Community Engagement
You may subscribe here to email lists for Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos, Boulder and The Bay Area - you must choose at least one email list to receive newsletters. Newsletters are emailed weekly on Thursdays to the Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Taos lists and as relevant submissions are received for other areas. To insure delivery to your inbox, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your list of contacts otherwise issues may land in your junk folder. To Update or Cancel your subscription, please use the links at the very bottom of the newsletter. To view the entire newsletter, please double-click on it to open it outside your browser otherwise you may only be able to scroll part of the way down.
There are currently about 1000 newsletter subscribers in Santa Fe and 150 each in ABQ and Taos with a typical open rate of around 25% among subscribers which is apparently far above average for email newsletters. Please visit and like our Enchanted Cafe Bulletin Board Facebook Page where links to the newsletters are also posted and read by many non-subscribers.
Submissions to the newsletter may be made on a donation basis - there is a somewhat similar service offered in ABQ in terms of its audience and number of subscribers that asks $15/listing/issue. These may be made via check payable to John Meade mailed to the address above or via PayPal to email@example.com. The purpose of the ECBB events newsletter is to promote one-time events, workshops or 1 - 3 weekend performance runs. Notices are posted chronologically among other events through the week of the event. The newsletter is also currently promoting ongoing classes, lecture & performance series, services, etc. which will eventually be placed in the ECBB Directory noted below when published.
Submissions should preferably be a letter or legal size "bulletin board flyer", in vertical format to achieve the largest size, visually attractive (include a great photo, image and / or graphic design) without too much text, in jpg format (image should be 600 pixels wide and 300KB - 1MB in size - use www.pdf2jpg.net or other program to convert pdf format to jpg), labeled with event name & date and emailed to the address below with "ECBB Submission - event date" in the subject line. If you would like a working website, facebook event or email address link included with your posting for easy access to more information about your event or to contact you, please request this and include these separately from the flyer so they can be easily copied and posted in an additional small text block under your flyer image. Receipt of all submissions will be confirmed so if you don’t hear from me within a day or so, please contact me by a second email, a phone call or a text to (505) 470-9740.

PROGRAMS, CLASSES & SERVICES DIRECTORY
We are planning to set up a new newsletter website along with a categorized directory for ongoing programs, classes, events organizations and services in the Santa Fe and Northern NM area that will be linked from the weekly newsletter in order to serve a much broader range of interests. ECBB subscribers will be able to find individuals and organizations offering a full range of activities and services, connect to their websites and subscribe to their email communications to be informed about offerings in which they have a particular interest.
To be included, please submit your listing name, website or facebook page, contact information and a one-line description of what you are offering so we will know how to categorize your listing to the email address above with "Enchanted Cafe Directory Submission" in the subject line.
