General Submission Info (Applies to all!):

All written submissions must be submitted electronically via email, unless other arrangements have been pre-approved by a Crew Member.  Submissions must be sent in one of the following formats:

1.  Microsoft Word  or Word Perfect Attachment
2.  Plain Text file attachment
3.  In the body of an email message

All submissions must be well written, spell checked, titled, labeled where appropriate, and must be given an appropriate file name and extension if sent as an attachment (.doc, .rtf, etc.).  

CD/Album Reviews
All CD/Album reviews must be accompanied by a track list, a website address for the band if available, and a .jpg, .gif, or .bmp image of the cover of the CD or Album if available.  These can often be downloaded from the bands website, from a on-line CD store, or by scanning the cover in yourself.  If you scan in the image, it must be no larger than 300 pixels in width, and at a resolution of 72 dpi.  Additional photos/logos/images can also be attached to the submission, but must be clearly labeled.  Be sure to include photographer credits if someone besides yourself took the pictures.

Show/Concert Reviews

Features
Features can cover a whole slew of topics from music festivals, car shows, and conventions to how to articles on a particular topic or area of interest.  Features are usually a little longer in length, a little more in depth, and include as many visuals (photographs, links, etc.) as possible.  Sparechange spans such a wide range of topics and reaches such a wide audience that the Features arena is wide open.  If you have an idea for a feature, but aren't sure if it fits, just drop us an email, and we'll let you know what we think!  (submissions@sparechangemagazine.com)

 

Submission Deadlines:

All contributions are due via email or snail mail no later than midnight the 15th of each month for the following month's posting.  Any articles received after midnight on the 15th will be reviewed for the other upcoming issues.  

All submissions are subject to review!  By making a submission, you give Sparechange Magazine and its staff the right to review, edit, and publish your contributions.
