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. Newsletters are emailed weekly on Thursdays to the Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Taos lists and as relevant submissions are received for other areas. Please visit and like our Facebook Page where links to the newsletters may be found.
There are currently about 800 newsletter subscribers in Santa Fe, and 100 each in ABQ and Taos with a typical open rate of around 25% among subscribers which is apparently far above average for email newsletters. It is also posted on the Enchanted Cafe and my personal Facebook Page with over 1000 local friends where it is 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 rather than ongoing classes, lecture & performance series, services, etc. (please apply for a listing in the ECBB Directory noted below for these kinds of offerings). Notices are posted chronologically among other events through the week of the event.
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.

PROGRAMS, CLASSES & SERVICES DIRECTORY
We are planning to set up a categorized directory on this website 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.
