Subscriptions

Why am I receiving Texas Co-op Power magazine?

The magazine is a benefit provided by your local electric cooperative. Please contact your co-op directly with any subscription questions.

How do I update my address?

The magazine is mailed to the billing address on file at your electric cooperative. The delivery address should update automatically if you move to a new co-op service area. After a few months, if your magazine is still going to the wrong address, contact your local co-op.

I don't receive the magazine from my electric co-op or don’t belong to an electric co-op. Can I still get a subscription?

Absolutely. A Texas Co-op Power subscription costs just $7.50 per year. Please visit the Contact page and use the General Information option to send us your subscription request.

Story Ideas and Pitches

I have an idea for a story. Whom do I contact?

Many of our story ideas come from readers. Contact us to let us know about it.

I want to contribute a story. Where do I start?

The editorial team eagerly solicits story pitches from emerging and established writers. We’re looking for:

  • Stories about Texas places, history, culture and people. We have a particular interest in rural and suburban areas served by electric cooperatives.
  • Stories that establish connections to electric cooperatives, if possible. Our stories reflect cooperative values such as concern for the community and supporting economic development.

We’re not interested in:

  • Fiction, poetry, marketing and previously published works.
  • Subjects that have been covered in Texas Co-op Power feature stories in the past seven years.

Strengthen your pitch by reading previous issues of the magazine, providing background on potential sources for the story you are pitching and including up to three previously published clips. We pay highly competitive rates.

Suggestions

I have a complaint, compliment or suggestion. What should I do?

Write to us! We love to hear from our readers. Your input helps us gauge how we are doing, what we need to change and what our co-op members are thinking.

Each month, we publish a few of the many letters we receive. You can submit a letter by using the online form (select the Contact the Editor option). Please include the name of your town and electric co-op. Letters may be edited for clarity and length.

Help Finding Archived Stories

Back a few months/years ago there was an article about hummingbirds, or maybe it was just a big picture of a hummingbird and a story about a bird trainer. I really can’t remember for sure. All I know is I liked it and can’t find my copy. Can I get another one?

We get these kinds of requests all the time. The good news is you can easily search our website. Simply type a keyword or phrase in the search field at the top of any page at TexasCoopPower.com.

However, our searchable archives only go back to 2007. If you’re looking for a story published before 2007, we can try to help find it for you. The more information you can provide, the better—especially if you know the exact month or even the year. Use the General Information option on our Contact page to submit your request.
