Writers' Guidelines

From late 1992:

*** Writer's Guidelines for SHIP'S LOG: SUPPLEMENTAL *** *Ship's Log: Supplemental*, a 'zine devoted to *Star Trek: The Next Generation* fiction, nonfiction, and art, is now accepting submissions.

*Ship's Log* is a top-quality 100-page 'zine with offset, cardstock covers, including the very best in fan writing.

All submissions (except for excessively graphic material) will be seriously considered for publication. Handwritten submissions are acceptable as long as they are readable. Submissions produced on an IBM (compatible), Apple II, or Macintosh computer are ideal, floppy disk and e-mail submissions are perfect. Whenever possible, enclose a printout of the submission (when done through regular mail).

The editor reserves the right to edit material included in *Ship's Log*; however, this will *not* be done without the prior consultation of the original author.

All artwork should be 8" X 10" or smaller, in black ink or pencil. Photographs are welcome and will be stripped and offset for publication. We accept submissions of all sizes, but only submissions of 5+ typed pages will warrant a free copy of the 'zine. If too much material is received for any particular issue, it will be used in the next one.

When sending by mail, if you'd like your work returned, please be sure to enclose adequate postage for its return; and for your own protection, do not send the only copy of your material (the Post Office has a way of losing things). [1]
