Submission Guidelines & Related Bits
Bonedale | Amplified aims to be an extraordinary magazine
Because it is about you. About us and our community. Our lifestyle. Our endeavors. The content on B|A is meant to stir interest, spread the word, enlighten, entertain, provoke, entice, woo and wow.
What it’s not? Reporting or advertising.
For submissions, we won’t ask you to read 3-4 issues to “understand our tone.” Be your own tone. Be genuine. Warm. Formal. Relaxed. Swear. Joke. Draw pictures. Create videos. Put together a photo essay. Tell a story in the ways you tell stories– through your art, your creations, your profession. Your adventures, failures and triumphs.
There are several tag lines tossed about with Amplified:
“Keepin’ it Carbondale.”
“About us, for us.”
“An economic driver with soul.”
These are the bits that drive B|A and touch on the universal voice of the content we want— each story, unique. We do (actually) ask you read 3-4 issues (once we get there!) Not to hijack your voice, but to show you that you can have fun with this, or dive deep; keep it tight and highly crafted, or stay loose but literate. Whatever your vibe, just ask yourself:
Why do I want to share _________?
How is _________ meaningful to me?
What do others gain from reading _________?
We do ask that you stay civil, be kind. Now get after it!
