InterpNEWS New Subscriptions Update

New reveals with every issue and every story.  

InterpNEWS started about 12 years ago as a John Veverka & Associates  newsletter-with a few interpretation articles added.  That first mailing went to about 100 agencies, organizations and individuals.  Now 12 years later InterpNEWS has evolved into the most widely read interpretation journal/magazine - that was sent FREE to anyone or agency/organizations that wanted to receive it.  You can post it on your web site or forward it on to your members for agencies and organizaitons.

New InterpNEWS Subscription Policy for 2023.  With rising costs for research subscriptions, website costs, new computer publishing programs, and more time to prepare each issue, I simply need some help to cover the increasing overhead, and time producing and sending out each issue.

I felt that a very low $20.00 subscription fee per year would help me to continue to publish 6 annual issues of InterpNEWS and add my special issues too, as illustrated bellow for 2023.

InterpNEWS is sent out as a PDF document via your e-mail address.  

Be sure your e-mail in box can accept large PDF files, usually more than 5 MB but can be up to 16 MB. Many govt. and agency mail boxes won't accept it.  If that happens use your own gmail, hotmail, etc. e-mail account to be safe.

I am always looking for articles on any interpretive topics.  Guidelines: up to 4 pages, single spaced, 12 point times/roman, with the pics as jpegs.  Send as a WORD document. Contact me if you have any ideas for an article you would like to submit.

Cheers, John Veverka -
