You have several options:

2)Follow us on Twitter at @spnnewsletter, and tag us with #RecMeSPNNL.
3) Post it to Ao3, with pairing if any, rating and title. We are able to catch most Ao3 posts under the ‘Supernatural’ and ‘Supernatural RPF’ tags.
4) Email it to [email protected]
5) Follow us on Instagram at @spn._.newsletter and tag us.
6) Follow us on Tumblr at @spn-newsletter and tag us.
7) If we’ve missed you in the previous edition, you can comment on our most recent edition and we’ll get you that way.
What do I need to do to get linked in an edition?
Basically, do something related to SPN! Fic, icons, meta, fanmixes, art, vids, etc. Fanworks that have been created and posted, within a few days to a week of the most current edition.
Beyond that, we do have some guidelines:
Fan Fiction (including Podfics/books):
Your fic MUST include a title, rating and pairing OR the statement of an absence of a pairing (“gen” or “no pairing”). We will NOT link a fic without these three things. We will refuse to link your fic without those three requirements. So spell it out for us–Sam/Dean, Jared/Jensen, Jared/JeffreyDean Morgan, etc, etc
“Wincest” is not a valid pairing listing.
Wincest can refer to Sam/Dean OR Sam/John, Dean/John, Sam/Dean/John, etc. We do not make assumptions about your fic, so if you have “Wincest” listed as the pairing we will pass it by until we see it listed as Sam/Dean or whichever Winchesters happen to be getting lucky! Let’s not forget Henry and Adam!
We now use the Ao3 rating system of General, Teens and up, Mature and Explicit to rate fic.
We require all fic to meet a 1,000 word minimum.
Artistic Fanworks | Icons | Wallpapers| Screenlocks
Any Icons | Wallpapers |Screenlocks and fanart must be labeled for pairings or something explicit in the fanart, a note of the rating and pairing so we can list it properly for the newsletter readers. If it’s Not Safe for Work, please label it as such.
Pics | Screencaps
Since the show has ended and all seasons have now gone to DVD/Blueray, we no longer include individual screencaps in the newsletter. If you would like to have screencaps included, they must be part of a picspam of at least 6 images, and additional content is required.
Pics must be original posts by the photographer. Edits of photos are now included in the Artistic Fanworks category.
Must be a minimum of 30 seconds long and include some footage from Supernatural, official Supernatural events, or the lead talent on the show.
Covers fandom contributions created in different media from fanart, fanfic, fanvids, etc. Can include things from podfics (which fall under the qualifications that regular fic require), fanmixes, original songs, etc.
Again, more information is always welcome and greatly appreciated.
