Barista Guild of America Files - Submitting an article
  • Articles must be at least 1,500 words in length, 2,000 words or more preferred. Microsoft Word, or RTF (Mac) formats are the only formats we'll accept.
  • Articles must be triple proof read - proof read by you, by someone you know, and then by you again. A polished, easy flowing article has a better chance of being published. Proof read for style, grammar, and flow. English only, but US, UK, or even Canadian English is acceptable.
  • Articles must be topical, informative, entertaining, educational, or a combination of all four. Articles that are essentially promotional pieces for a commercial venture or company will not be published.
  • An "identifier photograph" must be submitted with the article - this is a photograph that sets the tone for what the article is about. Requirements are a square image, at least 300pixels square or larger.
  • Other photographs (with tag descriptions optional) that complement the article are also encouraged.
  • Include a short 1-2 sentence biography of yourself, written in third person.
  • Include a photo of yourself, in portrait style, at least 100 pixels tall by 75 pixels wide, or larger.
