How to Submit Content for the Beacon

We welcome items for our weekly Beacon newsletter.  Before submitting your article or announcement, please consider these tips:

  • Be brief. People are increasingly bombarded by information and their time is scarce. Give them the important info up front and remember that the shorter a piece is, the more likely it will be read.
  • Be relevant. Your item should directly connect to at least one of our shared Unitarian Universalist principles and to our congregation, our PNW District, the UUA or our Bainbridge Island & North Kitsap community.
  • Be thorough. Please double-check your item for spelling, grammar, punctuation and, most importantly, correct information. If you’re submitting an event announcement, please include a street address, a date, start and end times and contact information.
  • Be current. If any critical details have changed about your item after it was published, please let us know ASAP. We won’t be able to un-send a newsletter we’ve released, but we can correct it on our web site and possibly publish a correction in a subsequent e-mail issue.
  • Be on time. Our deadline is Friday at 11:00 a.m. for the following Friday Beacon e-mail publication. Please submit your item for publication by emailing it to Please do not try to format your submission. Please send just plain text in your email.

Brief Style Guide For Beacon Announcements

  1. Keep the title of the announcement concise and relatively short — e.g. in the range of about 40 to 60 characters — emphasizing what’s unique about the announcement.
  2. Put most important information at the beginning of the announcement. Dates and places should appear in the first paragraph.
  3. Format all times as follows: 2:00 p.m. or 8:00 a.m.
  4. Format all dates as follows: January 14, 2017
  5. Format all titles in title case with only the first letter of significant words capitalized. Articles and prepositions do not need to be capitalized. For example: The Rebirth of the Sun Celebration.
  6. Use only 1 space between sentences.
  7. Bold proper names of Cedars Members.
  8. Italicize book titles.
  9. Numbers less than 10 should be spelled out.
  10. Identify the team, committee, or group submitting the announcement so the announcement can be categorized appropriately.
