~ PCLOS Magazine Submissions ~
« on: April 05, 2009, 11:44:03 AM »

The Magazine has an Editor
The jobs he assigns


The Magazine has an Artist
The cover he designs


The Magazine has Assistants
They're all up to speed


But what good's the Magazine
If there's nothin' there to read?


Without your submissions
The Magazine's an empty sheet


Without your submissions
The Magazine's incomplete


To all PCLOS users
We care about what you think


So send us some articles
We'll put them in cyber ink



Hi Everyone,
I have been appointed head of NWRSD* by the Editor in Chief of the PCLOS Magazine.
* New Writers/Reporters and Submission Department
Here is my job description:
  • All writers/reporters will answer to you
  • Hand out writing assignments
  • Determine if a submission is good and forward it to the Editor in Chief
  • Take submissions and evaluate them to see if they should be submitted

I wasn't given the standards for a good submission, so I made up my own criteria.

1.If I can understand the article/submission, it will be rejected.
2. If I can't understand the article/submission it will go right to the top.

This means that 99.99% of what is submitted has a 99.99% chance of getting into the magazine.

The magazine, for the past year, has had simpler, less restrictive submission guidelines than those in the previous post.

Please refer to the current submission guidelines.

We welcome any article topics that are relevant to general computing, internet trends and advances, general Linux, and (naturally) PCLinuxOS-specific.

Do not worry if you feel as if you are "not much of a writer." The magazine staff, along with me (the Chief Editor), will help with polishing your article prior to its publication. If you can put two coherent thoughts together (and I know everyone here can, or they wouldn't be here), then you have the ability to write articles for The NEW PCLinuxOS Magazine. I only ask that the articles you submit are your own work (that is, your own original creations), and not plagiarized.

If you have ANY questions (e.g., "Is this a topic the magazine would be interested in?", "I have this idea for an article, but I'm unsure of how to proceed."), please feel free to contact me at pclinuxos dot mag at gmail dot com.

Thanks!

The submission guide has been updated
And my previous post as well   :D
Now parnote's come a beggin'
And givin' ya the hard sell

So get out your Kwrite editor
And start writing stuff pell-mell
Surely you've got some thoughts
In your one little brain cell  ;D

Jot down all your ideas
Don't matter if you can't spell
We need lots of articles
For our wonderful clientele  :-*

I see you've decided on your magazine article topic, menotu.  ;D ;D

Now prepare an outline or diagram of your ideas.
Write your thesis statement and start working on the body (of the essay).
Write the main points and subpoints.
Write an intro and conclusion.

Submit it using the new guidelines and voila. I am sure the editor-in-chief will accept it.  8)   ::)

Sorry about that. When minus.com started getting flaky, we moved this file to the magazine server. Honestly, I totally forgot about this post.

You can find the file here.

Most of the links in this thread are dead from what I can determine.

When I clicked on the link for submitting (http://pclosmag.com/index.php/submission-new)  my browser went a little batty!  What gives?  I have an article to submit!

The link above is apparently malformed  https ://pclosmag.com/index.php/index.html  with two 'index' endings.
When I dropped one of them and got to the page I saw nothing about new submissions but might have missed it.

Might be best to delete (or replace) the bad links in this thread?

Alex,

For expediency's sake, you could just submit your article as a LO *.odt file by emailing it to  me, at parnote at gmail dot com, or to Meemaw at meemaw at pclosmail dot com.

The magazine typically uses Google Docs for article submissions. You can join the magazine's Google Groups mailing list by signing up here. Be sure to include a comment that includes your name here on the forum, and that you are wanting to join the magazine staff. You can unsubscribe at any time. But, by being a member of the magazine's Google Groups mailing list, you'll have full access to all the articles that we're working on, enabling you to assist with editing, or sharing your own articles with the magazine staff via Google Docs. Even articles submitted as LO files get uploaded to Google Docs so that we may collaboratively edit those articles.

TBH, that submission guide is quite old and is in need of updating. Sorry about the confusion and problems.

This means that 99.99% of what is submitted has a 99.99% chance of getting into the magazine.

What - huh?

That is back words.
