Writing Guidelines and Artwork Submissions
Foundations is not only a magazine that strives to deliver the most current university news to our alumni and friends, but we also wish it to be a place for our alumni to share stories about what they’ve achieved and promote healthy conversations on important issues facing our society.
Whether our alumni stay close to South Bend or life takes them far from campus, we want to help share the stories that will resonate and highlight how our fellow Titans are making an impact.
If you would like to contribute an article for a printed edition of Foundations we encourage you to consider the following word counts:
- Feature length article: 1,500-2,000
- Single page article: 500-800
- Brief/Sidebar: 100-150
The Foundations website will be updated with the online versions of the articles from each printed edition we distribute, but will also be a place where we can include a variety of web-exclusive articles, videos, and alumni news.
Although web writing allows for long format content, we remind you to make your words count, rather than counting words.
Also, please keep in mind that editors of the publication retain the right to edit submissions for length, accuracy, and style. Indiana University generally follows AP style, but if you are interested, you are welcome to review more on our editorial style guidelines.
Writing submissions can be made via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Artwork for the magazine is usually provided by professional photographers or artists that have been selected by the team directly responsible for producing the publication. Any artwork that is provided and meant to be highlighted alongside a specific story will be evaluated for quality and content on a case-by-case basis.
The university rarely purchases photographs or illustrations, but if you are interested in creating artwork to feature in the magazine please contact: email@example.com
