Become a Contributor!
We'd like to build G into the place to go on the web for quality and thoughtful writing on the issues of the day. In addition to essays and reporting, we hope to feature original fiction and poetry, photography and other forms of art. Think of what you see so far as the starting point. If you have something to contribute, we're ready to read, to listen and to work with you. The following general guidelines are offered to help provide a sense of what we're looking for and how we operate.
We are pleased to consider for publication material in any format accessible via the World Wide Web, including:
CD or Concert Reviews
Photography, Color or Black and White
Original movie shorts
Spoken Word Poetry or Readings
Almost Anything Else You Can Think Of
We're particularly interested in material using two or more genres. For example, an account of a visit to Cairo accompanied by original photography might be of interest. An original poem accompanied with original art or by a video or audio version incorporating music would be an excellent idea as well. Of course, we must pay attention to the limitations of bandwidth, but they're ever-changing, so contact us if you have questions.
In general, we have no specific criteria with respect to content. However, we have a desire for pieces which challenge the reader, which make us go, "hmmmm, I hadn't thought about it that way before." In any event, the best way to get an idea of what we will publish is to look at, but not be restricted by, what we have published in the past.
If you have a story idea, send us a note via email. Your message should outline the general idea, what your theme is, and why it might be a good feature for G. If you have material already put together in final form, graphics or poetry, for example, an email note would still be useful so we can facilitate delivery of the material. If you have an essay or poetry and simply want to submit it, please do so.
In general, material accepted for publication will be edited by the G staff. In certain cases, we may provide feedback and engage the author in discussion about written material. However, final publication decisions must remain with G. Any material physically delivered to G, photographic images or original art, for example, will be returned after publication decisions are finalized.
