Contributor/Writer's Guidelines

If you would like to submit editorial to Facilitator please read and complete the form below and please send your article and images associated with the article to Heather Webb at 

-Facilitator magazine welcomes articles and suggestions for articles.
-Articles must be submitted on an exclusive basis.
-The Facilitator must have the first run of the article.
-The article must not be under consideration by other print or online publications.
-The organization and writing style should promote readability.
-Commercial promotion of a company or product is prohibited and will be deleted.
-Articles must be in Microsoft Word format and submitted electronically.
-A brief biographical sketch of each author should accompany the article and serve as their byline.
-The author's head shot should also accompany the article submission.
-Authors should keep a copy of all materials submitted.
As a general guideline, our preference for the word count range for a 1-2 page column is to be anywhere from 800 to 1100 words, and for a feature story to be anywhere from 1200-1800 words. Please also feel free to contribute information that would be appropriate for a sidebar treatment for your story or topic to be displayed in a visual fashion outside of the text layout format.
All articles will be edited for readability, style and accuracy. Authors will not be given the opportunity to approve editor's changes. All features will follow Associated Press guidelines. Articles should be free of awkward constructions, such as parentheses and passive voice. Slang, profanity, commercialism, contractions and gender bias will be deleted.
We highly recommend sending any images or artwork to accompany your editorial contribution as there are some topics that are very topic specific and may not be able to be found through our normal stock resource channels.
All photographs, illustrations, figures, tables and charts accompanying an article must be identified with a description. For photographs for a story/article please also include a photo caption relating to the discussion/topic.
Graphic materials should be submitted electronically. Electronic images must be saved as high-resolution (300 dpi) tiff, jpeg or eps files. When e-mailing images, please compress the files before sending as image files tend to lose resolution or become truncated in transit (especially important if you'd like to submit an eps image). We cannot use images submitted in a Microsoft Word Document, PowerPoint presentation or pdf.
Contact Heather Webb at, 972-805-0905 or Cindy Pater,, 469-222-9168, for deadlines or questions relating to a specific issue.
Authors should include contact information and fully complete the online form below.
I have read, understand and have abided by the guidelines above
