A Brief Note About Sending Articles
Last September, I sent the note below as an email to many of the members of the Stained Glass Association of America; it is important enough that it bears repeating here for anyone who might have missed the email or still may be undecided about sending in pictures of work for consideration for publication:
For almost 20 years, I have been the editor of The Stained Glass Quarterly. I’ve been to Annual Summer Conferences all across the country; I’ve visited members and photographed many installations on those trips. In short, I’ve seen a lot of work done by members of the SGAA, and I am usually impressed by what I see. However, there are two things that remain true: First, in all those travels, I have seen only a small fraction of the work being done by our members, and, second, our members across the country and around the world are producing great stained glass faster than I could possibly see it.
There is a common myth out there that I have staff reporters and photographers who I can send out to cover important stained glass installations. Unfortunately, this is only a myth. There are no staff reporters or photographers; that’s why I count on the members of the Stained Glass Association of America to send photographs and information on their own installations.
FYI: Stained Glass Gallery pages are perfect for smaller installations that can be covered in one or two pictures. For larger installations made up of multiple windows, there are feature articles. You can find all of the details for writing for The Quarterly online at: http://stainedglassquarterly.com/?page_id=35.
As always, if you have any questions or would like to discuss a specific article, then you’re welcome to contact me at the SGAA Headquarters at 800.438-9581 or by email at email@example.com.
Why not take a few minutes right now to email a few high-resolution photographs of some of your recent work to me for inclusion in an upcoming issue of the magazine? It’s a great way to get started, and, before you know it, you’ll be seeing your work in your Association’s magazine!
