Submission Guidelines


The SouthWest Sage newsletter welcomes submissions focusing on all aspects of research, writing, and publishing in any genre. See the newsletter archives for the types of articles we publish.

Four ways of possibly being included:

  • Write an article for the Sage related to the craft of writing, getting published, etc.
  • Send stories, poems, or articles inspired by the monthly writing challenge announced in each Sage.
  • Send a short story/poem/essay on any topic (inclusion in the Sage is at the discretion of the editor).
  • Send artwork or photographs related to writing in general or accompanying your stories.

Payment is in bylines and clips. Deadline is the 15th of the month prior to the next issue. Article lengths from 300-1000 words. Submissions may be edited for accuracy, readability, and length.

Please send all submissions as either standard text in an email or in a Word document using Times New Roman, Ariel, or Courier New in 12 pt. size. Single spaced. Do not get fancy with formatting or fonts—your best chance for publication lies in making it as easy as possible for the editor.
