We are trying something new this year, and we hope you will be part of it.
This year’s essays will be run as they are received—untouched by editorial hands. In the past, we have suggested cosmetic touch-ups and the like. But people have complained that the published essay is not fully representative of the author’s work. So we will get out of the way this year. This year’s six-step process is: (1) you write your essay and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, (2) we send it to the printer, (3) the printer typesets and lay-outs it, (4) we send you a proof and ask you to make sure the printer did not change it, (5) you tell us what, if anything, needs to be corrected (or tell us it is okay as is), and (6) that is what gets published
