The folknik, the Club newsletter, is issued every other month and mailed to all club members with a Standard membership who request a print copy. It contains a schedule of folk music events in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, original songs, news of Club activities, and articles of general interest. Mailing is done at a potluck music party by volunteers who fold and tab the newsletter, then eat and make music when the job is done. Time and place of fold-ins are on page 2 of each folknik.

Send e-mail submissions for folknik articles to the editor of the page where the information should be printed, with a copy to the Editor-in-Chief. The deadline for submittal is normally the first Friday of even-numbered months, with an exception for the January-February issue. See page 9 for the deadline date.  (The deadline date for the May-June 2020 issue is April 3, 2020.)
