How-To Submit Articles

Do you have a story to tell?  Tech tips to share?  Historical information about Corvairs?  If so, write an article and send it to Don Keefe, our Executive Editor for publication in our Communque magazine.  And be sure to include any photos or graphics you may have about your topic.

You may be wondering how to go about this.  Here is some advice from Don:

As for the text of your article, please prepare it using MS Word or Open Office text processing software, attach the resulting DOC or ODT file to an email, and send it to me.  My email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  As an alternative, you can paste the text of your article into the body of the email, but if you do so, you will likely lose things like italics and other font-type modifications.

As for photos or other graphics, I prefer camera files in their highest resolution uploaded to a Google Drive or Dropbox folder.  It is best if the size is 3,000 pixels wide or better, preferably in jpg or tiff formats.  The objective is to have high-resolution images that show up crisp and clear when the Communique comes off the printing press.

As for any editing or "resizing" your image files, don't do it.  I have an editing regimen that needs to be followed and any modifications made before I get the photos generally means that they will not be usable.

If you don't have either a Google Drive or Dropbox folder, they are free to open one and usually can hold 15 GB before any charges are incurred.  I cannot imagine that you will use even half of that for the entire year.

If you have any questions, please free to call me at 585-489-9826.

We can't guarantee that we'll publish each and every article that we receive, especially if the topic has already been addressed in previous issues of the Communique.  Naturally, the content of the article must be suitable.  But give it a shot and see!
