Style: The piece should be relatively informal and conversational in tone. A graph or table or a few footnotes are not out of the question, but we expect these columns to be mostly text. The column editor and the ISTL editor reserve the right to edit submissions for style, clarity, and length.
Length: There is no firm limit on the length of a submission, but in the interests of readers' time, short and succinct is preferred. 500-1000 words would be a good target length.
The column editor will consult with the author on any changes before submitting it to ISTL for final publication. The editors reserve the right to reject any submission deemed unsuitable for publication.
Submissions should be e-mailed (as text or attached Word or RTF files) to:
