Fence Post Writer’s Guidelines

The Fence Post is an agriculture/farm/ranch publication dedicated to preserving our Western heritage. Stories about growing up in the country and about the history of the land are the cornerstone of our publication, which premiered on June 2, 1980, and has since grown to nearly 23,000 subscribers in all 50 states.

To submit stories, photos, poems or recipes there are several things you should know.

Specifications

• We prefer stories in the 200- to 750-word range. The shorter the submission, the better chance it has of being published in the near future.

• E-mailed submissions can be sent to adietz@thefencepost.com. We also accept floppy disks and CDs as long as the submission is in MS Word or a text format.

• Typewritten copy should be double-spaced and with only one space between sentences.

• Do not use small type, italics, script or any unusual fonts. Courier or Helvetica fonts work best with our scanning system.

• NEVER type or print in all capital letters!

• Photocopies of stories are acceptable if they are equal in quality to the original.

• Faxes are acceptable only on a deadline basis with prior permission from the editor.

• Avoid writing additions and corrections between lines or margins.

Style Guidelines

• We use the Associated Press Stylebook as a guide for all submissions.

• Include 2-3 optional headlines with each story. The editor reserves the right to change the headline.

• Do not use profanity, off-color expletives, graphic descriptions, gore or expressions which may be offensive.

• Do not send us material that you have seen published elsewhere. Calendars, place mats, posters, catalogs and clippings are all copyrighted. “Borrowing” from them is called plagiarism. It is against the law.

Please include your complete name, address, and phone number on ALL submissions. Include a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) if you want your stories or photos returned to you.
