Support local journalism! Subscribe 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. 

Today, as the town of Bluff sorts out the details of its recent incorporation and as San Juan County welcomes in its first ever majority-Navajo leadership, we're reviving the Canyon Echo. Our goal is to live up to the standards set by the print journal. We hope to establish an online community forum for local news and opinion as well as an outlet for place-based poetry and essays. We'll be publishing archival articles from the print Echo to our website each month along with fresh content.

Since launching our website in early 2019, we've provided in-depth coverage of the Willie Grayeyes residency trial, and our reporting was featured on NPR stations in Salt Lake City, Moab, and Cortez. We've covered Bears Ears National Monument developments and published beautiful poetry from local writers. 

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. Please consider signing up at whatever level you feel you can afford. Monthly donations are preferred; cancel anytime. (Alternatively, checks can be mailed to PO Box 327, Bluff, UT 84512, made out to Zak Podmore.) Donations are not currently tax deductible.

Whether or not you decide to subscribe, you're invited to head on over to and share your ideas. We'd love to hear from you.
