Editorial Submission Guidelines

•    All submissions for the following month’s newspaper must be submitted to thejewishoutlook@shalomaustin.org no later than the 10th of the month. If the 10th should fall on the weekend or holiday, deadlines move back to the Friday or last business day before the weekend or holiday. Submit stories, Mazel Tovs and photographs to thejewishoutlook@shalomaustin.org.
•    All submissions for consideration as feature stories should follow the basic “inverted pyramid” format - consisting of a lead sentence that includes who, what, when, where, why and how. More information on the inverted pyramid style can be found here.
•    Basic punctuation and grammar for all submissions should follow the AP Style handbook. Holidays and Hebrew words will be stylized by the editor (so don’t worry too much about it).
•    Stories should be written in third-person narrative (he, she, it, they) and not first-person (we, I) or second-person (you).
•    Include the author’s first and last name who wrote the article or submission.
•    Organizational event dates and times should be submitted in full. Event dates submitted without all information included (who, what, when, where, (why and how are optional) will not be printed.
•    Photos that accompany all submissions should arrive with an informative caption. Names included in the caption should be full, with correctly spelled names identifying the subjects left to right. If there is a photo credit needed, that information must also be submitted.  Images should be provided in JPG or TIF format at a minimum of 200 dpi.  
•    We do not pay for submissions. 
•    We regret that we are unable to personally respond to everyone, but we do read all submissions.
