Editorial Policy

Ossekeag Publishing will accept editorial submissions on topics of general interest to the local communities within the following guidelines:

* Submission deadline is one week prior to publication date.

* Editorial submissions are recommended to be a maximum of 300 words, and photos are welcome. Those who submit photos with an article and wish to have them returned must include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Photos will also be kept for a short period of time if arrangements are made to pick them up.

* All editorial should be submitted by the deadline in order to ensure being published in the next issue. All submissions received after deadline will be published only as space allows. In the event of limited space, time sensitive editorial articles will receive preference by the date of the event.

* Articles submitted as a “Letter to the Editor” must include contact information of the person submitting the article. The name will be included with the article unless otherwise stipulated.

Editorial includes articles regarding community events hosted by non-profit organizations, charity groups, schools, churches, service clubs, or sports teams. Information regarding church suppers, showers, school events, community group fundraisers, or results of events are examples of editorial content.

Articles submitted by commercial entities (e.g. businesses) are generally not considered as editorial unless any monies generated are going directly to a charity or similar community organization.

Additionally, we publish non-political secular community magazines, and therefore editorial submissions on political or religious issues may not be considered for publication.

Ossekeag Publishing reserves the right to refuse or edit any submission.
