    Submission Guidelines

    So you want to write for Altered States Magazine?

    Well, we're looking for writers! If you've got a nose for news, a penchant for prose, or any other trite statement that means you like to write, we want you!

    Altered States Magazine is looking for pieces of high quality, but they don't have to be on any given topic. We're looking for pieces with opinions and the statements to back them up -- but they are your opinions.

    In terms of columns, Altered States Magazine is looking for pieces that are going to be exclusive to the magazine... to a point. Whatever you submit will remain your property, but we'd like to have "first crack" at exclusivity. In other words, we'd like to be able to publish it first, then after a short time you could plaster it wherever you wanted. And hey, if you wanted to mention that it first appeared in Altered States Magazine, that's fine by us!

    With regard to previously published pieces, please E-mail the editor (see below for the address) and explain the situation. Circumstances will dictate how each situation will be handled.

    Read the Guidelines for complete information.

    So if you have a full article, a work of fanfic, some drawings, or a story proposal you want to submit for consideration, or send an E-mail to with the subject "ASM Submission". Submissions without the subject title will be processed, but it will take longer, so be sure to get that subject line right!
