Postings to the Guild Magazine are published periodically. Please submit articles to one of our Co-Directors for review.  All submissions will be reviewed by all three Co-Directors; acceptance for publication is dependent on approval by all three Co-Directors. The Guild reserves the right to publish articles in the form that they are submitted (without further editing), to edit articles or suggest that the author make changes, to reject submissions without detailed explanation, and to add or substitute photos appropriate to article content.  Nothing will be published without the author’s final approval if any editing takes place. Guild members are encouraged to submit articles often!  Articles should be 1200 words or less.
