How To Submit A "The Hoosier Line" Magazine (THL) Article:

The Editors of The Hoosier Line welcome the contribution of articles to the publication from members and non-members.

Topics for Monon-related articles may be historical, technical, or operational, and articles which capture first-person experiences and the unique appeal of the Monon are equally welcome. Also of interest are articles on Monon modeling in all scales.

Although not required, it is recommended that you contact the editorial staff in advance of a submission, briefly outlining the planned topic of the article. In this way, the staff can assist you in refining the approach and scope of the article.

Submitting relevant photographs, maps, and/or drawings with the article is preferred, but not a requisite as the editorial team can utilize the MRHTS archives and other sources as needed.

Article text should be submitted digitally and in .DOC (Word) format. The document should also include suggested article title and authorís byline.

Photo/image captions should be submitted as a separate .DOC (Word) document. Captions should be numbered or otherwise identified in a way that matches provided illustrations. Whenever feasible, captions should include photo location, date, and photographer credit line.

Photos (and other images) are preferred to be received digitally in JPG (or TIFF) format and scanned at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, at the size of reproduction. Images scanned at a lower resolution are often usable but will be limited in size for reproduction in the publication. Do not use the actual image file names for extending naming or captioning.

We look forward to your contributions and urge you to contact the Editorial Staff with ideas and questions.
