Instructions for Contributors

For Authors

We welcome articles on snubs and noir stuff.

Unlike an Internet publication, space is limited on the printed page and space = money. Please write with an economy of words. Go through your text and try to remove as many words as you can. Please correct the grammar and spelling to the best of your ability. We reserve the right to edit your article for space or consistency with the rest of the Broadside. You will have an opportunity to review our changes prior to publication.

Please save your document as a Microsoft Word (.docx) file. Put your name and the article title in the filename. Put the article title and your name on the first line of the document.

Images

We encourage pictures, tables, graphs and other visual aids for the articles. If you want to include one, it must be at a resolution of 300 DPI or higher. If your picture is going to take up one column (3.75”) on the printed page, it needs to have a minimum horizontal resolution of 1125 pixels. For a two column picture (7.75”), the minimum horizontal resolution is 2325 pixels. The maximum height for any picture is 10”.

Write your own caption and provide attribution where appropriate. Please send only images for which you own the copyright, you have permission to use the copyright, or that are in the public domain. We cannot use copyrighted works without permission.

If you are sending a picture directly from your camera, it is OK for it to be in JPEG format. Please take the picture in the highest quality mode that you can. For any other kind of image, or anything that has been edited, they should be in TIFF format (for raster/bitmap) or AI/SVG (vector). Low resolution images cannot be used. Repeated saves to JPEG will lower the quality of anything in the image with hard edges, i.e. text.

By submitting an article, you agree to allow I’m With ROSCOE to reproduce your work (text and any graphical elements) in any medium in perpetuity.

Photos for our I’m With ROSCOE Calendar

Photos must be taken in landscape mode with the minimum resolution of 300 DPI for an 8.5×11” sheet of paper (3300×2550 pixels or more).

We cannot use photos in portrait mode or at lower resolution.

Every photo must have a caption describing the snubby in the picture as well as attribution for the photographer.

By submitting a photo, you agree to allow I’m With ROSCOE to reproduce your work (text and any graphical elements) in any medium in perpetuity.

Sincerely,
