- include an author bio of 100 words or less. Bio will not count toward wordcount. Your website should be included in your bio. (Please, place the bio directly into your piece, do not send separately. This will immediately disqualify the piece. Do not place your website in your byline.

If you need instructions on how to do that, please let us know.
- Photos must come in either JPG or PNG files. No PDF and No Zip files please. Please make certain to title each photo file so that it states what is in the photo. No initials or abbreviations please.
- If you wish to have more than one photo per article, you’ll need to pay a small fee of 1 dollar to assist with additional cost of adding descriptive text. I’ll want Two Pentacles to do the work so the formatting Etc. will match. You can, if you wish, have Two Pentacles work with you on creating photos including descriptive text in a document format you would use to simply copy and paste directly into your article before submitting your work. This way, you’ve something handy to use for multiple promotional opportunities. An example of this for my own personal use is, the picture of me and Blue made shortly after his being given to me and of course the beautiful Grapevine cover you see here. I’m able to paste this into any article or essay I wish. Just a little extra tip today.
Thank you for your compliance with our guidelines and for the privilege of telling the world all about you.
