The Jackrabbit Speaks (JRS) is Burning Man’s official newsletter, sent to hundreds of thousands of subscribers. In addition to year-round information about the growing community and culture of Burning Man, it includes important up-to-date information about preparing for Black Rock City. We send posts no more than bi-weekly(ish), and a little more frequently as the event nears. See our JRS archive and our FAQ.
You can unsubscribe by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any JRS email, or do this:
A. Look up and follow the instructions on how to configure your junk mail folder or spam trap for your particular email service provider. Make sure that email@example.com is allowed (or white-listed).
A. The JRS is the primary mouthpiece for the Burning Man community. There are currently over 170,000 subscribers on the list and the last thing we want to do is waste their precious inbox space and attention span. Thus, we only include posts that are of broad enough interest, relevance and importance to that audience. We reserve the right to post or not post anything.
A. We only publish very high-profile projects that will have a significant impact on the community (e.g. a LOT if not ALL of Burning Man participants will experience it), or ones that, in our opinion, are of special interest to the community. Alternatively, you are welcome to submit your Kickstarter for inclusion on our Support a Project page, which we promote regularly.
A. We use this section to promote select fundraisers (see above), and call-outs for support through participation, material donations and volunteering for your project. Alternatively, we encourage you to post your project needs (or skills you’re offering) on our Spark system.
A. Likely not, unless your event is somehow particularly interesting, inspiring or reflective of Burning Man’s culture in the world, thus making it newsworthy to our global audience. Alternatively, we encourage you to submit your events to your local Regional Network contact for inclusion in their lists.
A. You have two options. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them (that’s your best bet, and a good first place to start). Otherwise, you can email email@example.com and the Rabbits will help you out. We’re good like that.
