INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: other than the submitting author(s),if included, such as copyrighted material, pictures, maps etc. will not be accepted unless they are accompanied by written and signed permission by their owner/authors or publishers, which should be appended as a separate attachment. A brief paragraph or two of expression (if allowed by copyright law) may be submitted, but must be fully acknowledged.
Stories should be submitted in the English language. Formal correct usage of that language is preferred, but is not absolutely required since the editor’s forte is clearly not English!

Always introduce your subject and characters as to 1)Period e.g. March, 1942. 2)Location e.g. Myitkyina town or airstrip. 3)Correct Names should be given in order for readers to re-connect with friends and loved ones. IMPORTANT: If a person is unknown, give a fictitious name. If known and needed for privacy considerations: give an unrelated fictitious name ( e.g. ‘Paul’ should, preferably, not be called ‘Saul’ or ‘Raul’). In either case, please note, such names should be underlined whenever mentioned in the text to remind readers that the chosen name is fictitious. 4) Gossip, off-color words/language, situations and depictions are not acceptable. Be very sure that the reputations of others are respected and preserved. 5)Stories/articles are limited to 1 to 6, 8x11 inch pages or about 400 type written (Microsoft 12 or14, double spaced) words per page. 6) It is suggested that you write your account as a draft to yourself.
