Guidelines for Writers

1.01  Subject Matter

One basic criterion for any good article is whether or not the author has something of value to say: Does the article provide information others might need or value? The best catalyst for a good article is likely to come from one’s own experiences. Successful writers put themselves in the position of the readers and think about what the readers want to know about the topic, not just what they want to say about it. The article must be able to balance both of that.

1.02 Format/Style

Because writing an article requires a considerable investment of time and energy, potential writers may want to review back issues to get an idea of the types of material generally published, as well as the general tone and article construction.

1.03  The Basics of Writing

When composing a draft article, authors should begin with a clear, concise introduction that explains what the article is about and why the reader would be interested in it. The rest of the article should then address the points covered in the introduction and remain as focused as possible. Articles should be broken into separate sections with subheads so that readers can more easily digest the presented information. Also, because readers may not have the time to read an entire article, they may need to browse section headings to determine which portions of the text are relevant to their work.

Authors should strive to write using simple yet effective language.

2. Tone and voice

The article must be a first-account narrative with a tone that stems from personal experiences. The tone must be conversational, relatable, engaging and positive. While framing the article the author must ensure that the positives of the art and artforms are highlighted bringing a special focus on the practitioners upholding what they do and why they are best at what they do. What you avoid is a dry tonality of writing that is essayish and runs like a composition.

3. Modus operandi 

Once the author files/submits an article for reviewing, the article will be read and edits are suggested by the editor. Upon fixing of the edits and final proofreading, the articles will be sent for final approvals. Post approvals, articles will be published on the blog.
