I have been getting some questions lately about contributions and ads. So, I wanted to throw out some guidelines for contributions and ads.
If you would like to contribute I welcome those contributions via e-mail as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Writing - Please provide the cleanest copy you can (proofread for spelling and grammar) in Microsoft Word format. I prefer a size 10 Bookman Old Style font with double line spacing. Please include your name and address on the document.
Photos - Please provide the image in a .jpg format in at least a 300 dpi resolution. Don't forget to include the caption (if any) that you would like used for the photo along with your name and address.
*Please do not submit writing or photos that are not yours. If somebody shared an electronic file with you the photo or writing is not yours. You must have created that writing yourself or taken the photo yourself.
*We purchase 1st, one time North American rights to the work. All work remains the property of the author or photographer. In other words, if we accept a contribution for publication we want it to run one time in our magazine and we want to be the first. Please don't let it run anywhere else if you agree to sell it to us; after we run it all rights to the work revert to the author/photographer.
Ads - We run three basic ads and all ads receive a button (button size is TCS discretion) at our blog/web page.
1/4 Page Ad approximate size 5"X3" $84
1/2 Page Ad approximate size 5"X7.5" $210
Full Page Ad approximate size 10"X7.5" $400
*The above cost is for 6 print issues and interior pages. Please contact me for inside and outside cover pricing. Artwork is to be provided by the advertiser. We can handle .jpg and pdf format and request that the resolution be at least 300 dpi.
