Writer's Guidelines

We have tried to keep our requirements for submissions loose so as not to discourage potential writers. Generally the easiest way is to send it as an email attachment. We can handle a variety of file formats, but Rich Text Format is always a safe bet.

Anytime we do any editing, other than spelling or simple punctuation corrections, a proof copy will be sent to the author for approval.

We are happy to accept multiple part articles, but we will not normally print part one until we receive the complete series. We encourage authors submitting articles over 5000 words to write them as a series.

Good photographs accompanying an article increase the likelihood it will be used. We prefer high resolution digital photos, slides or prints with negatives. We do accept quality prints without negatives if the negatives are unavailable. Please include captions and authors of all photos submitted. When sending photos from a digital camera please send the original unaltered file. They can be submitted on CD-rom, DVD-rom, or sent as email attachments to sjones@americanfalconry.com

Tables, graphs, and other illustrations need to be professional in appearance if they are to be used. Frequently we can help in this area.

Payment for articles will start at $100.00. Exact amount will depend on length (longer isn't always better), photos included, amount of editing needed, and notoriety of the author.
