Most of the material you’ll find in The Skinnie comes to us at the suggestion or through the efforts of readers. We like that. It’s key to the success of the magazine. We strive to provide high-quality content that is particularly interesting and relevant to you. When you help in the process, our work improves.
We have always believed we maintain a silent, implied dialogue with each of our readers. That connection makes this ongoing project work. We appreciate your readership, but we also seek your ideas, suggestions, comments and submissions. We can’t use everything, but more makes it in than gets left out.
Consider what you’d like to see in the magazine. Maybe it’s a discussion of a hot topic or a profile of one of your friends. You might be aware of an organization that is doing great things and you want to share its story. Perhaps you’ve taken a special trip or an amazing photo. Tell us; show us. We’d love to hear from you soon.
Letters to the Editor
Letters are always welcome, to maintain an open dialogue with your neighbors, as well as the greater Savannah community. However, we do not publish unsigned letters, or those addressed to third parties. We reserve the right to edit letters for clarity and content.
If you have an idea for an article, something you have written, we welcome the opportunity to consider it for publication. The Skinnie prides itself on unique content, so if it's something you've already offered to another publication, we may have to pass.
We look for stories that are approximately 1,000-1,500 words in length, and all articles are edited for clarity and content. Regretfully, we rarely have time for book reviews, and we don't publish poetry
Please be aware we plan each issue several weeks ahead. We recommend that you contact us in advance if your article idea is time-sensitive. If you’re uncertain how best to see your idea in print, please contact us. We’ll be happy to help.
We're always open to photos for Wild Things, or to accompany articles. All photos and other graphics should be 300 DPI (dots per inch). Or, if you're unsure, just send us the biggest image you can, and we'll work through any problems.
Cover images must be vertical (or croppable), with some "dead space" toward the top to accommodate our masthead. We are open to almost any subject matter: wild life, art, or area scenes, but we do have a few restrictions. We avoid people and pets, and we steer clear of egrets on the marsh, or cranes on the lagoon, as they can be so common to Skidaway Island. It is also rare that we will use a photo of a sunrise or sunset.
