I’ve talked to the editor of the Daily Herald and these are the specifications for submission that he’s given me.
- Short stories, articles, and opinion/observation pieces are to be no longer than 1,200 words.
- Poetry can be 80-100 lines long with special formatting to be noted on the submission.
- Any .doc/.docx, .txt, or .odt file is acceptable. You can copy the work into the body of an email, as well. (Please don’t use outrageous fonts. Times/Times New Roman works best.)
- Please don’t send submissions as .pdf files or scans of your work. They are a pain to copy and lead to typos or other mistakes.
Feel free to send your submission to email@example.com with the Subject: Community Voices Submission.
