To propose a contribution or idea for the Reading/s or Alerts sections of HOW2, send a brief description of the subject, title and current status --"unpublished" or "reprint" (with publishing information) -- to: Ann Vickery <avickery@astro.temple.edu> or Kate Fagan <kfag6311@mail.usyd.edu.au>

Submissions for the Postcard section should be sent to Kathleen Fraser <kfraser@sfsu.edu>

You may propose a piece of new writing, or any scholarly or informal "reading" directly to the guest editor of the section for which your piece is intended, by e-mail or a file attachment . [See appropriate section for next issue's guest editor/her e-mail address.]

You will be contacted within one month of sending your proposal, regarding its viability for the issue in progress.


Sending Submissions by Email:
Essays, "readings," scholarly studies or pieces of "new writing" (poetry or mixed genre forms) should be submitted directly to the editor of that particular section. Once a piece has been selected for inclusion in HOW2 by that editor, please e-mail a copy directly to the HOW2 Webmaster: Roberta Sims <rsims@bucknell.edu>. Make sure you identify in the subject or the message which section of HOW2 the writing is being direct at (e.g.: new writings, readings, conferences, forums, etc.).

Text: is best sent as RTF (Rich Text Format) or a Microsoft Word document (preferably Microsoft Word 97) as an attachment to an e-mail (not within the e-mail). Most word processors can save a file as RTF text. If sending a document as Word, please specify in the body of your e-mail message which version you are using. To check which version you are currently using on your computer, go to the Help menu and chose: "About Microsoft Word."

File Title: Please write the title of each file so that your surname starts the filename, eg. Vickerypoem1.doc. Remember also to attach the appropriate suffix (eg. ".rtf" or ".doc") to the filenames if you are using a Mac.

Font: Georgia or Times New Roman, 12 point, is the preferred font for HOW2. Please try not to use other fonts as we may not be able to reproduce them.

Layout: Please use single spacing for all writing, including poems and quotes. However, if a poem or mixed media piece does require a different spacing arrangement, feel free to go ahead.

Please use tabs rather than the spacebar when formatting poems. Arrangements using the spacebar are lost when converted to HTML. However, if you are using very specific spacing, please send a hard copy of the original to our web master:

Roberta L. Sims
University Webmaster
Bucknell University
Lewisburg, PA 17837

Make sure the hard copy has your name, address, e-mail address, and the section for HOW2 to which it is being directed to (eg. New writing, readings, forum, etc.) clearly set out on the cover page.

Graphics: These are best sent as e-mail attachments in the forms of JPEGs. Please add the suffix ".jpg" (not ".jpeg") in lower case to the file name. If you are are scanning the artwork yourself, please scan it at 100% size, with the resolution set to 300, 150 or 72 DPI.

All manuscripts should include a short bio/biblio note with recent information and publications. In addition, a Working Note must accompany all "new writing" contributions. (See current new writing section for examples).


Proposals for original artwork should bear in mind the requirements of this journal. A xerox or photograph of suggested graphics should be sent to the editors, rather than original art work. If a piece of work is requested by an editor for a particular issue, the artist will then be asked to send the original art work to a designated postal address.
