Submission Guidelines

We are looking for Authors to write Guest Posts on a variety of topics from Science to Marketing Ideas. Do you have good ideas about how to build a new world? How about an exciting new technology that would work great in a Sci Fi story? Maybe you know something particularly useful to other authors or writing professionals?  Or maybe you just have a funny story to share.

Contact us with your idea. Once we agree on it, you can write your article and we will post it on the Other Voices of the Sci Fi Roundtable.

To Submit a Post

  • Check the list of suggested topics here. We’re adding to the list all the time, or you can feel free to query us regarding an idea for your own topic.
  • Check the Newsletter Calendar here. I put 4 articles a month from our members in the Newsletter. They are themed per month and articles about the craft of writing get preference. I also use 4 interviews of our members each month and need interviewers.
  • Send an email to: postreq @ scifiroundtable.org
  • Let us know which topic (if you choose one) and when you would like to post. Please choose a date at least 2 – 4  weeks out from the date of your email and we will do our best to get it published as close to that date as possible.
  • Be willing to have your article proofread and edited. (It will be returned to you for corrections and final approval before posting.)

Article Guidelines

  • 800 to 1200 words (approximately) You won’t be kicked out of class for being a little too short or a little too long.
  • Be witty and informative in what you write. Content is important, but so is style.
  • Artwork/Graphics should be public domain or author owned. We need to make sure there are no copyright issues. Graphics are important so please feel free to provide some (or ask us for input of you don’t have any).
  • Short Bio (150 – 175 words) Tell the readers a little about yourself.
  • Head Shot Image  250 x 250 works best, but we can work with what you have.

Interview Guidelines

  • Five questions tailored to fit the interviewee. If you want to make your interview longer, feel free. I will post the first five on the blog and link to yours for the rest of it.
  • Character interviews are welcome, but will be limited to the theme of the month. (e.g. For October it might be villains or monstrous characters.)
  • Short Bio (150 – 175 words) Tell the readers a little about yourself.
  • Head Shot Image  250 x 250 works best, but we can work with what you have.
  • Be sure to get images of: books by the author, characters (if a character interview and they have them), and a headshot of the author.
