Guidelines to submit to NSNC Website Columnists.com Website
Web Editor – Sheila Moss
We want to be a valuable resource of information, both for members and for the general public. However, to succeed our website must not only look great, but also must have great content as well. We can only update if we have current news, articles, and announcements from our members.
Book, Awards, Announcements
Please send submissions about your member books, awards, contests won or other personal news to the WebEditor via the CONTACT form or ask for a contact address. A pictures or illustration will help draw attention to your announcement . JPG format is preferred, but another format will be accepted if we can convert it successfully.
Submissions may be edited for length, so please be brief and concise.
Columns, Essays, Articles
Article submissions are also accepted, and we encourage you to share your writing and experience with your fellow columnists. Column-length articles related to professional journalism, the business of writing, copyright law, ethics in journalism, legendary columnists, NSNC experiences, or other similar topics of interest to newspaper columnists are especially suggested.
We cannot use articles on general topics, with the exception of those that are winners in the NSNC writing contest sponsored by NSNC, or columns pertaining to general news items of high interest to journalists. Well written articles in opposition to personal opinions expressed on the website are always invited and welcomed. Articles will be published on the website with reference to space available, relevance, and current needs. Decisions by the WebEditor are final. Appropriate credit (50 word bio & picture) links and by-lines will be given for all articles.
Letters to the Editor, Feedback, Brief Comment
Well written shorter articles in regard to NSNC events, comments on news that affects columnists or the journalistic world are most likely to be used.
If you have anything that you feel is relevant and that members would like to know, by all means send it whether it fits these categories or not. Jokes, cartoons, poems, pictures, video, humor columns, whatever… We will find a place for worthwhile submissions.
Deadlines – (That word again)
Because of the dynamic nature of the net, we have no deadlines; however, please allow at least a 24 hours turnaround on time-sensitive material, a week or longer for general announcements or articles, and longer for featured columns.
Thanks for your assistance in helping us update our website. The web editor welcomes your input and contributions.
