Outstanding stories at affordable prices

HCN Syndicate, like the magazine and website from which it derives, is an editor's dream.

Editors and publishers from across the county use HCN Syndicate for high quality, inexpensive news, opinion columns and feature stories. For only four yearly payments, you can subscribe to the service and use almost anything found on hcn.org. OR, you can pick and choose the occasional story and be invoiced at the end of each month for only what you've used.

The service includes: 

  • A free weekly feed of at least three news stories, essays and book reviews about life in the modern American west. HCN staff and freelance contributors bring to the subjects they cover a depth not often found in mainstream media.
  • A free weekly feed of op-ed pieces. We call this service Writers on the Range because contributors are a diverse bunch whose opinions are anything but predictable, except in one respect: like our readers (and yours) they’re deeply concerned about the West, what’s right about it, what’s wrong about it. The pieces HCN selects for Writers on the Range come from people from all walks of life, people who are steeped in — through education or experience or both — the topics on which they opine. They mince no words in discussing water or oil, wildlife or wild life, good stewards of the land or despoilers — everything, in short, that makes up life in the modern American West, the good, the bad, the ugly...
  • We also have a separate feature feed at least once a month. These include the feature story covered in a recent issue of High Country News and can only be purchased by the piece. Some photos are often included and stories can be edited with pre-run approval by HCN's editors.
