We're constantly looking for one-paged articles for new issues of Paged Out! If you're interested in writing one (or more) for us, you'll find all the needed information (linked) below.
In 5 simple steps!
On the Writing Articles page we gathered topic examples, technical requirements, details about the process and writing tips. It's somewhat of a long read, but reading it will make the whole writing/submission process smoother!
This is the most important step! Write the text you have in mind (or draw the cheatsheet/diagram/image/drawing/etc) and set it in the layout you have in mind (Wait, what? The author has to do the layout? That's... unusual.).
Read the article again. And perhaps share it with a friend for proof reading.
Note: If you would prefer to have someone from the Paged Out! Institute to look at the article early (e.g. before you spend time on the layout, or even to just discuss the topic you have in mind), feel free to contact us at any time.
To publish the article we require a license (don't worry, we want *you* to keep the ownership of the article).
There are a couple of possibilities here:
Note: The first option allows the author to (if the author wishes so) share magazine's profit (if any) - as mentioned in several places: this is a not-for-profit project, but we will take steps for it to be self-sustainable (more information). In all honesty these will probably be really small sums, but still we wanted authors to have this option.
After receiving the article we'll get back to you and send you a form to fill out, and within the next couple of days assign a reviewer/editor to work with you.
Note: Please use Reply To All in the correspondence (it's not the default on most mail client) - it's pretty common for multiple people to be on one e-mail thread.
Work with the assigned reviewer to polish up the article.
Reviewers are volunteers that work with authors to make sure that the article meets the desired bar, and that no typos are left uncorrected.
Once your article gets the final approval, it's done! Your article is ready and will be published in the upcoming issue of our magazine.
