Submissions/Press Releases

East Kootenay News Online Weekly (e-KNOW) intends to become the true voice of the East Kootenay. In order for that to happen, we need to hear from the residents of this region, who wish to share their opinions about what is going on.

We welcome all submissions, be they letters to the editor, press releases, community club columns, personal view columns, sports club submissions, show advances etc.

Send your press releases with pictures (horizontal 600 x 400 pixels)

Please send in at least 2 weeks before event to  [email protected]

Letters to the Editor

Like any good newspaper should, we offer readers a chance to participate in the ongoing dialogue of our regional community by submitting Letters to the Editor. We have a great right in Canada called ‘freedom of the press’ or ‘freedom of expression’ and the best way to maintain that right is to use it and have your say. The more ideas put forward, the more opinions and viewpoints put forward for society to consider and the better off we all are. So c’mon and take part in e-KNOW!

e-KNOW’s editorial policy

We reserve the right to edit submissions for taste, legal reasons, length and advertorialization (and yes, that is not an actual word!). We also reserve the right to edit when needed, with Canadian Press Style and basic grammar in mind.

General length should be in the 500 word range, though one of the beauties of online newspapers is we aren’t constrained by the limits of available column inches between advertising.

Your letters must include your full name, the community in which you live and a day time phone number or email address.

Submitting columnists retain the rights to their pieces, but by submitting it to e-KNOW, you are giving us the right to run it as we see fit.

Many op-ed submissions are made by elected officials in federal, provincial and local governments. Some submissions are paid advertorials and those items will be noted as such.

If you wish to make a submission to e-KNOW, please email it to[email protected]


If you are sending a photo or photos to run with your submission, please send them as attached jpegs. Also, please forward decently-sized jpeg files. Please submit images that are at least 200 jpeg. We can shrink files to fit but can’t increase the size of tiny files. We need files that are minimum 6×4 inches/72 jpeg (600×400 pixels).


We try to publish submissions as soon as possible when we receive them. Always try to get your submissions or releases forwarded to us at least two weeks before the event so we may meet your event deadlines.
