Submit an Article
In summary, articles may be submitted only by registered users, so start by joining the site.
No compensation is paid for articles.
All articles submitted and accepted for publication become the shared property of the author and ESL Journal. Articles must be original, but we do not assert copyright, and you may republish your article in other venues. You must tell us if your article has been previously published, regardless of re-editing or versioning. We reserve the right to reject or delete previously published articles.
Submit your article as plain text with the attached form. Do not submit articles formatted with a word processor, as the formatting (e.g., boldface, "smart" quotes...) is platform dependent and will be lost.
A word about style
'Tis the king's English. And as it happens, I'm the king.
And so are you. When you submit an article we will attempt to preserve your style and habits of usage, with minor exceptions dictated by the technical constraints of publishing on the WWW.
Finally, although we can make a reasonable effort to display your article as intended, please note that this is largely a labor of love and that the time of our volunteer editors is limited. The magazine is published using flexible yet standardized tools that enable us to accommodate a vast but not infinite variety of layouts.
If you wish to help expand our horizons by bringing a sponsor for an article requiring extensive manual configuration, we'd be happy to discuss your individual situation.
