Do you want to write an article or some news for the Sources Magazine or the Sources Blog?
Below is an outline that can help you get your item in the Sources Magazine or on the Sources Blog. Please Note: These are guidelines; you are more than welcome to add more to your article.
Article Lengths and Requirements:
Feature Article: If you wish to have your article be a feature article, please keep your article to a maximum of 5 PDF pages. Pictures are strongly encouraged to go along with a feature article as they help bring a story to life. In feature articles, we generally use three to six photos. However, feel free to send as many as ten so that we can choose photos that best fit the space or idea? If specific photos need to be in particular places, please let us know.
Typical Article: If you want to have your article be a regular article, please keep your article to a maximum of 3 pages. Pictures are encouraged to go along with articles as they help bring a story to life. The minimum number of photos requested is one. However, feel free to send more, up to a maximum of four.
Please note that sometimes the editing staff may need to make changes to fit within the available space in the magazine.
Announcements: You can also make announcements on news, courses or events. Try to create your announcement to fit about a quarter to half a page. This way, there will be space for other people’s announcements without creating extra blank space in the newsletter as it’s no fun to stare at white.
What all items need:
- Author Name
- For photos, who provided/took the picture to give appropriate credits.
- Also, if possible, who is in the photos.
- Dates (if necessary, i.e., Halloween themed article/Captain’s Log)
12 Type Font, Times New Roman
