Submission form
  • Got an idea for an article you want to see published in Choral Director Magazine?
    Let us know! Guidelines for submission and consideration are simple. Submit a Word Doc, with nothing in ALL CAPS, and without images embedded. If you need to provide images, simply upload them for us separately from the Word document. Don't try to make it pretty, we'll do that part. A one-page article is roughly 1000 words, and that includes every single word on the page, like the title, the "by" line, the story itself, and the short "about the writer" at the end which we run on a space available basis. The same is true with a headshot of you as the writer. The more images you supply, the fewer words that will fit on the page. If your article is full, pushing the 1000 word page size, edit it down if you have images, including your headshot, you want to use. We will consider longer articles, so those are the standards per page.At the bottom of your article, please type any caption for an image next to the image file name. For instance:

    Caption: This is a picture of my dog Sugaree - img4.jpg

    If you require somebody receive a credit for the image or photo, type that right below the Caption line!

    We typically need submissions to consider for the next issue date on or before the 15th of the month preceding publication. So, if it is the August/September issue, we would need that submission by July 15.

    We can run scores and sheet music you own, have written, or arranged of public domain works. Please upload those full size in PDF format, unless they are a small example for the article that does not need full size.

    While Choral Director will own the copyright to completed and compiled magazine itself and the collective contents in this complete periodical form or in posts to our website, we will not own or ever try to make claim to your musical works, or written works, individually. So don't worry about that. You can reused whatever we publish of yours, because you own it, you're granting us permission to use it and keep it in use once you submit and we publish it. Pretty simple, huh? Please, no product announcements or press releases in this form!
