Suggestions for Contributors
The Bluesletter welcomes articles and pictures that may be of interest to Washington Blues Society members and Bluesletter readers.
The following suggestions describe the publication’s requirements for editorial copy and pictures.
All stories, blues show reviews, Letters to the Editor and CD reviews must be submitted as attachments, and not embedded in the body of an email, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit articles as attachments in plain text (.txt) or Microsoft Word. Please title the story with a file name that describes the copy, such as “CD Review Band Name by Author Name” or “Show Review Mark Hummell by Author Name.”
Pictures and Visual Art
Our printer, Pacific Publishing, requires all Bluesletter submissions to be formatted for traditional print media at high resolution. This generally means that photos pulled from social media or the Internet will not be suitable for print as they are often saved in low resolution (e.g. 72 dots per inch or less). For print, all photos must be sent as attachments in high resolution, 300 dots per inch, and all color images must be saved as CMYK (Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Black) images only. Please title each picture with a unique title instead of using camera-supplied numerical file names, such as “Little Bill Show Photo by Photographer Name.”
Please email email@example.com with questions regarding potential stories or photos. Please remember that the Bluesletter reaches not only a regional Pacific Northwest audience but readers across North America and the world. We have an active street team that distributions the magazine to well over 125 locations in the greater Seattle area and mail copies to blues clubs around the nation.
