If you want to develop content for our web site and/or The Chicago Scene, contact one or both of the coordinators below. We would love to hear from you.
For our Website
We are are always looking for members that want to provide content as well as those that want to become part of the website team.
If you are interested in becoming a regular contributor, we will train you on how to author posts within our development environment.
For those that have a technical background or are interested in helping support the site, we will provide training as well.
For The Chicago Scene
We’re always looking for members who want to write articles for The Chicago Scene, especially those of you who are looking to provide content that is educational or topical in nature.
Articles should be between 250 and 500 words and submitted as Microsoft Word documents. Accompanying photos, if any, should be shot and submitted at high resolution; otherwise, they don’t reproduce very well, and can only be run at small sizes.
Please also note in this regard that writers aren’t obligated to submit pictures, and photographers aren’t obligated to submit articles.
Articles and pictures must be submitted by the last day of the month, one month prior to the date of publication. For example, pictures and articles for the March edition were due for submission by January 31; and articles and pictures for the May issue are due April 1, etc.
Given the tech sessions and driving programs typically begin in late March or early April, there is some flexibility in submission dates. This means that you should step forward with your proposals even earlier than that, to ensure that we have coverage for the Club’s various events.
Remember, too, that space in The Scene is limited, and we’d like to avoid duplication of coverage, if at all possible. Consequently, reaching out sooner is always preferable to last minute proposals or submissions. We look forward to a great season this year, so let’s work together to cover it all!
