Submit to Imaginings
Want to share some of your brilliance -- article, essay, poem, art, or other forms of communication that can be captured on a website?
For text-based work, please attach it as a Word document to an email and send it to us. Please include all authorship, citations, publication information, etc. that is relevant and please proofread carefully. We doan't lyke proofreeding! Also, to increase your chances of publication, please format your paper in the following ways to cut down on our editing time:
- Please only use ONE space after periods and before the next sentence. While your typing teacher probably taught you to use two, it is internet (and publishing) protocol to only use one. If you use two, it requires us to manually fix it -- which we won't do.
- Also please don't use smart quotes, ellipses, and autoformatted dashes. We have to replace these as well. If you don't know how to do this, check MS Word Help. Thanks!
- And, please use italics rather than underlining in your references and bibliography. (Articles and short pieces get quotation marks, books and longer works get italicized.)
- We are not going to be style fascists as to your reference style -- we hate MLA madness as much as the next folks. However, whatever reference style you use, please make sure that you're consistent and accurate.
For visual work, please query us so we can figure out if we do, indeed, have the technology to share your genius.
We're sorry, but we're not necessarily able to include everyone's submissions -- because this is a benevolent despotism with far fewer indentured servants than it deserves, we will make completely arbitrary (and final) decisions about whether and when we add submissions. Please understand that we genuinely appreciate your interest, but our resources are, unfortunately, finite. (Translation: please send us your stuff, know that we're thrilled that you did, and don't pester us if it doesn't get up -- bugging us will not help and just make us grumpy. You wouldn't like us when we're grumpy.)
In any case, if we publish your work online, you will retain all copyrights, etc. Previously published work, as long as you hold copyright on it, is perfectly dandy, just let us know when and where it first appeared.
We'd love for you to join us on the voyage. Here's how to contact us.
