Support local journalism! Donate to the Canyon Echo Today.

From 1993 to 1997, the Canyon Echo published quality news, essays, and poetry from southeastern Utah every month. Under the leadership of publisher Linda Richmond and editor Phil Hall, the paper drew advertisers from as far away as Cortez and contributors from all across the country. 


Zak Podmore revived the Echo digitally in early 2019, providing crucial news coverage in the wake of Bluff's incorporation and the election of the first majority-Dine' San Juan County Commission. The Echo covered Bears Ears National Monument developments and published beautiful poetry from local writers under Podmore's leadership, and reporting was featured on NPR stations in Salt Lake City, Moab, and Cortez. 


Podmore passed the editorial torch to Eli Beck in early 2022. The goal remains to live up to the standards set by the print journal. 


All articles are free and available to anyone online without a subscription, but if you want to see the Echo thrive once again, we're asking for your help.


Your donations support an online community forum for local news and opinion as well as an outlet for place-based poetry and essays. Funds will be used to cover administrative costs, to compensate and attract contributors, and to support the editor.


Monthly donations are especially helpful, and support the process of regularly republishing archival articles from the print Echo to our website along with fresh content.


Donations are not currently tax deductible, but stay tuned as the Echo explores nonprofit status!


Thank you,

Eli Beck, Editor
