Share Your Story with the NBA: Write for our newsletter, e-news, and blog!

NBA Newsletter ScreenshotThe National Barn Alliance is seeking articles and contributors for our newsletter, “The Barn Door,” our e-newsletter and our blog, “The Barn Journal.”  The “The Barn Door” is bi-annual publication mailed to our membership.  Articles may also be posted on here, on “The Barn Journal,” and shared via the NBA’s Facebook, Twitter, Linked In page, or Youtube channel.

We encourage individuals as well as our state and local barn preservation partners to share updates on their activities. This is an opportunity to share your successes with others working to save historic barns in their own states. Article topics must be barn-focused such as history/preservation, grant programs, kids & education, photos, art, barn facts, endangered barns, saved barns, repair tips, preservation tips, book review, surveys & studies, barn raisings, and tours. We are also taking calendar submissions for conferences, tours and events.

Submission guidelines:

– Suggested length is 300 – 600 words. Photos are highly recommended.

– Send article in a MS Word, iWorks Pages, or as text in the body of the email.  Photos are preferred in .jpeg format as attachments with captions.


Articles for online publication are rolling.  Submission Deadlines for the printed newsletters are:
