Hi there. Let me begin by telling you that
I look forward to reading your submission to SalsaNewYork. But before you start
typing away like a mambo-fiend let me list a couple of simple submission rules
Never write anything
negative about anyone. THIS IS RULE ONE. SalsaNewYork Magazine is a
positive oriented site. Egos will not come into play. You can have a
difference of opinion, but never use your article as a means to launch a
personal attack on anyone.
The Topic should be dance
related. SalsaNewYork is a Salsa "DANCE" oriented web-site. We
love the music, the bands, the CD's etc., but in relation to how they gets
us grooving to the beat of the clave. Examples of Dance oriented topics:
Partner-work, Spinning, Turn Patterns, Best dance clubs, Favorite Dance
events, Social dancing vs. Performing, Open Floor Shines, Performing for the
first time, Performing with a live band, Club dancing, Choice of dance
shoes, Choice of Dance Partners, The advantage of dancing with different
people, Ladies/Men's Styling, Interviews with Instructors and so on and so
forth. This should give you an idea of what we are looking for.
Length of Articles should
be between 3 and 8 paragraphs long. For those who need a clue, paragraph
are usually 2 to 4 sentences long, depending on the length of each sentence.
At least that was what my English teacher told me eons ago way back when
there was no such things as personal PC's. Yikes!
Articles should be e-mailed
to me at MCIACorp@ix.netcom.com.
Please make sure that it is written in a MS Word or Word Perfect Document
and is sent to me as an attachment in your e-mail. Also please let me know
what type of attachment you have included with your e-mail. You can also
send me your article within the actual body of your e-mail message. This way
I should be able to cut and paste your work onto our actual web-site. Due to
my heavy time constraints I will not be able to use articles written on
paper. (Thanks for understanding).
Check grammar please!
Please double check your grammar. I understand that we all make
mistakes, God Knows that I make a truckload of them personally, especially
when you think about all the info I spite out on the web all the time. But
if I have to start rewriting more than a couple of sentences, I might as
well write the piece myself.
Photos are optional. If
you do decide to include a photo, please try to e-mail it to me in a
jpeg/gif format. Please make sure that it is of decent quality. We'll reduce
the amount of resolution at our end so that it fits the average internet
user download speed.
Well that's it. Hope that you're
still interested in writing us a piece. I look forward to sharing the dance
floor with you real soon. - Manny
