Professionally Speaking - Submitting an article

If you're in the coffee industry and have something to say, we want to hear from you. Write up an article of around 1500 words, proof it carefully, find a good photo or two to match the story, and send it to us in a word document format. We'll contact you for publishing information if your article submission matches this columns' focus and writing standards.

  • 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 Articles that are essentially promotional pieces for a commercial venture or company will not be published.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.
