Guidelines for Publicity MaterialsIf you would like to submit materials for the calendar, race results/recaps, and news sections, please contact us via email. We are sorry but we cannot accept any submissions that are not digital. We post such information free of charge. Any information you submit becomes the property of CoastalBoating.net and White Seahorse, Inc., but we will make every attempt to refrain from using it promotionally in any unintended way. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee complete copyright protection and we reserve the right to reject material we consider unsuitable for publication on CoastalBoating.net.
If you have a site you would like to link to ours, please contact us. Please provide the full url and a brief description of your organization in the email.
If you organize frequent or large regattas and events and would like to have a customized upload page for your results, please contact us. We are willing to host results pages, photo galleries, and brief summaries of the events on our site.
We will post information about non-profit organizations and their activities as time and space permits. Please contact us for details.
Guidelines for Writers
We welcome author inquiries and unsolicited manuscripts. All manuscripts should be submitted electronically, preferably on disk along with appropriate artwork such as digital files, transparencies or color prints. Color prints do not generally reproduce well and should be accompanied by negatives. Good sketches are also acceptable. Manuscripts submitted for Feature consideration (first mention on home page) should be written in the first person and not exceed approximately 2,500 words. Manuscripts submitted for consideration as Non-features (all other departments) should not exceed 2,000 words.
Due to the volume of manuscripts we receive, we regret we cannot offer critiques of unacceptable material. We cannot offer payment at this time (hey, we're new here). In the future, we expect to buy all World Periodical Rights and pay within 90 days of acceptance.
Write your name and address on your disk, within the text file and on each photograph, slide or sketch. We cannot be responsible for anything that does not bear the sender's name. Also number and identify each slide and print and submit a brief caption sheet. If your manuscript involves a cruise, please include a photocopy of a map or chart with the places you visited clearly marked on it.
Please enclose an author bio with sailing history and identify the people and type of boat in the story.
Manuscripts must not be sent to other publications (print or online) for consideration during the same time period. Such simultaneous submissions could cause an infringement of copyright laws. If, however, your manuscript has previously been published in part or in whole, let us know. Our rates vary with each individual submission.
After the editors have had a chance to review your contribution, we will either accept it for publication or notify you otherwise. Dates of publication remain tentative.
Please be sure that you use a consistent permanent (not transient) address in all correspondence. Also, please note your telephone number and e-mail address on your cover letter, and enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope large enough to contain your submission and any accompanying artwork if you would like it returned.
Send your manuscript to CoastalBoating.net, PO Box 726, Mahwah, NJ 07430 Attn: Editor.
