Writing For Ink Byte

The Ink Byte Editors -- May 23, 2018

Review a book. Interview someone of interest to other writers. Give us the benefit of your special expertise. Got an idea for a column?

Drop us email to and tell us your idea. If we like it and think it'll work for readers, we'll work with you to turn the idea into an article, a column, or other form.
In general the following guidelines apply:

Our process works like this: after we ask for your submission you can attach a manuscript to an email to The manuscript can be in MS Word format (.doc file), or in Rich Text Format (.rtf) or HTML.

Our software will process the content for web pages, so formatting should be kept relatively simple. If you want to have a photograph or two with the article, attach those to the email as well.

Your manuscript should start with three "paragraphs":

  1. A title or headline
  2. A byline. A line saying who wrote it.
  3. A synopsis or "hook". A sentence or two, three at the most, that will appear at the head of the article and also can be used on the frontpage along with a link to the main article, as a teaser.

Try NOT to use empty lines to separate paragraphs. We have to manually take them out.
