Submission guidelines

We are always looking for original, well written articles, covering all aspects of lapidary and rockhounding. A previously published story is also appreciated, but when you send it in, please tell us where you saw it, so we can get permission to reprint.

Articles should be 200 - 1000 words, and submitted by email.

Electronic submission (email) is preferred. Send the article as unformatted text (a .txt file) pasted into the body of the email, or attach as a text (.txt file) or WORD (.doc file). Do not use excessive formatting (bold, italics), as the article will be reformatted prior to placing in the magazine. The Editor retains the right to edit, shorten or merge all submissions, subject to print requirements.

You, the submitting person, are wholly responsible for the content of the article. Special care should be taken to ensure correct credits, if the article is co-authored, or if you are using quotations or references from third party sources.

Digitized images should be as high density as possible, and sent as attachments via email as .bmp or .gif or .jpg files. Currently we can seldom afford colour (apart from the front and back covers), so you are encouraged to convert your images to gray tones before submitting, to ensure that what looks great in colour also looks all right in black & white. Regular photographs should be mailed, should have the name and address of the owner written lightly on the back, and be accompanied by a stamped, addressed envelope if they are to be returned.
