Writers' Guidelines

In general, we are looking for well-written articles of 250-3000 words - shorter articles are often preferred to longer ones in that range - that are about Basenjis or are Basenji-related in some direct way. Articles with unique angles or perspectives are very welcome. No articles written from the dog's point of view. Articles that play into the issue's themes are given preference, but any well-written article is considered.

Small "blurbs" or fillers about Basenjis can also be useful to us - 50-150 words - to fill in spaces when the magazine is laid out.

All material submitted is considered, but we reserve the right to accept or reject any submitted material in whole or in part. We further reserve the right to edit any and all copy, photographs, or illustrations.  By submitting material, you are indicating that you have the right to give permission for that material, and that you are giving AWA, LLC and The Basenji a unlimited, non-exclusive, permanent right of use to that material.

We pay in contributor's copies. It's a good magazine to get writing credits or if you just like to write.
