Author Guidelines

Contributors to Uncommon Culture should recognize the following aspects of this unique magazine:

  • The electronic medium. Shorter sentences and paragraphs are best suited to digital publications. Readers require text that is concise and useful rather than wordy and general; therefore, writing to express, rather than impress, will best promote your ideas
  • The Uncommon Culture audience. Since the Uncommon Culture audience is both diverse and international in scope, readers will better understand your message through simple explanations and less complex sentences.
  • Consistency in style and format. Consistency minimizes readers’ confusion about the treatment of various elements.

Uncommon Culture’s guidelines for authors are not absolute and certainly subject to variances. However, keeping them in mind helps the editors, and more importantly, helps your readers.
