Submission Guidelines for Writers in the Sky Newsletter

If you wish to contribute an article, advertorial, blurb, announcement about writing, publishing or book marketing to Yvonne Perry's newsletter, please review these guidelines and submit your item via email.

  • Limit articles to 750 words or less.
  • The piece must be about the craft or business of writing and publishing.
  • Include a short bio with your submission so I may give proper credit.
  • Use Times New Roman 11 point font.
  • MS Word docs are okay, but txt files are preferred.
  • Promotion of your own material is accepted if it is written in an advertorial (article) style.
  • No colored text box (jpg, bmp, etc.) ads. The article must be content rich.
  • Book reviews are accepted as long as they highlight the book and its author in a positive manner.
  • Poetry is accepted. I will publish three short works (less than 25 lines) in each issue. Do not double space between lines.
  • Announcements of upcoming events, personal accomplishments, special offers, etc. are accepted. Try to keep these less than 250 words.
  • Each submitting writer retains the copyright to his or her own piece of literature and may use it elsewhere. Since I do not charge a fee for the newsletter, I am unable to pay for submittals. However, the networking opportunity is worth a lot.
  • The newsletter will be sent on the first of each month. I need all submittals in by the 25th day of the month prior.
