Newbie Revelations - Submitting an article

If you would like to submit a story for this weekly column, we invite you to do so. Write up your article, (1200-1500 words minimum), check it once, twice, three times for spelling, grammar, flow and the like, and fill out the form below. We also need a few other elements from you, all outlined in the bullet points that follow.

  • 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 Articles that are essentially promotional pieces for a commercial venture or company will not be published.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.
  • Include your contact information as requested on the form.
  • Items marked with an asterix * are required. All other fields are optional.

Newbie Revelations Column Archives  
Column Description
Every week, the CoffeeGeek website features a new submitted article by folks who are (or used to be) unashamably known as "newbies" to quality coffee and espresso. These articles will detail the baby steps, then maybe even the big steps the writers took going from a no coffee / instant coffee world to a new taste world known as quality coffee and espresso.
