Article Submission Guidelines
We welcome your article submissions. At this time, we do not pay for articles. If you would like us to mail you copies of Pet Tails once it has been printed, please provide an address and indicate how many copies you desire.
Submissions cannot be used for advertising. Submissions may mention a specific product or service, but must be useful without the purchase of that product or service. Content must greatly overpower advertising.
We prefer submissions to Pet Tails that have not been published elsewhere. If they have, please indicate where and when your submission was previously published.
Submissions must be original and must not contain copyrighted material.
Submissions should be between 500 and 1100 words long.
Pet Tails reserves the right to edit for length, style, and clarity prior to publication. The editors reserve the right, when necessary, to request article revisions from the original author.
Any published article will include a description of the author, including contact information, if desired.
Substantive articles, as deemed by the editor, will be highlighted on the Pet Tailscover along with the name of the author.
Deadlines are the 15th of the month prior to publication, e.g., January 15 for publication in the February/March issue.
Submit articles via e-mail as Microsoft Word or text file attachments to PetTails@LifeWithDogs.us.
Do not embed photos or images in your documents; send them as separate file attachments.
Do not perform any special formatting.
If there are people in the pictures, there needs to be a model release.
