How to Submit an Item
to be Considered for Publication
in The Graybeards

Instructions from Art Sharp, Editor, in the September/October 2004 issue of The Graybeards:

I encourage comments and submissions from every KWVA member and/or reader. Let's face it: we can't publish The Graybeards without your input. I would like to see as many stories, photos, poems, etc., as you are willing to send me. I will try to get as much as possible into the magazine. (I have included my home address, telephone number, and e-mail address below for your convenience.).

If you think you have something worth including in The Graybeards, send it. Use the U.S. Postal Service, UPS, FedEx, email, carrier pigeon. ..whatever is best for you.

The material can be typed, handwritten, etched in crayons, scribbled on napkins.  It is my job as editor to transform it in whatever medium it is submitted into a clear, concise, consistent, complete, accurate format.
