Editorial Submissions

The Echo welcomes unsolicited contributions but, given the volume of material we receive, not all submissions will be acknowledged. Email is the preferred means of receipt.

Please see our Contact Us page for details of where to send your contributions.

The quality of a submission will greatly affect the likelihood of us using it. Some helpful tips can be found through the following links:

Letters to the editor

We love to receive letters, but not every letter will be published; the publication of letters is at the discretion of the online and print letters editors.

The deadline for the Byron Echo newspaper is noon Friday and letters longer than 200 words may be cut for the paper. However, longer letters are often published online before or after being published in the paper.

Letters already published in other papers will not be considered.

Please include your full name, address and phone number for verification purposes.

Submit a gig press release

To give your gig the best chance of being included in our entertainment section please include a short write up about the event (200 words max) and 2 high resolution photos.

An example press release can be be downloaded here as a Word doc template:
