Guidelines for Submitting Articles and Photos for Renewable News
Please submit your articles and images via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For questions contact RFT at: (850) 907-1278
• Articles should be 300 words or less in length (except for an occasional special feature). Keep your article brief and to the point, since readership time and attention is limited. Be brief, and you’ll have a better chance of holding the reader’s attention. If your article is too long, the editor may cut portions.
• Consider your audience. Would RFT members really be interested in this? Make sure your jargon is not so technical that it will baffle your readers. Articles that read like an ad or promotion for your company won’t make it into print.
• Include the author’s name, affiliation (who they work for), and contact information.
• Avoid editorializing (expressing your opinions as facts). Just stick to the facts of the story.
• Run spell check and word count on your article before sending it.
• Don’t have time to write an article, or don’t think of yourself as a great writer?
Just submit a list of facts – who, what, where, when, how, & why – about your subject, and the newsletter editor will develop a story for you. If you’re writing the article, be sure to include answers to those same questions.
Guidelines for Photos or Graphics: Include a maximum of two (2) photos. Each photo or graphic as a separate file attachment, not embedded in a Word document, and not a page full of them scanned together as one file. Resolution of digital photos should be 200 dpi or greater. File formats for photos should be JPG or TIF. By submission of a photo(s) you are authorizing Recycle Florida Today, Inc. to utilize these images in their newsletters or other association content as well as verifying that you are the original owner.
