I have a non-fiction article that I want to submit to a magazine (Military Heritage to start with.) and have looked at their submission guidelines. My problem is this: I found the guidelines somewhat vague. Never having submitted a non-fiction article to a magazine, I was wondering if anyone knows of a good site that shows a standard manuscript format. Also, does anyone here have any pointers when making this type of submission. The article is related to the Revolutionary War, about 3000 words, (Which is within their length guidelines.) and I have photos that I am also submitting to accompany the article. However, they want paper submissions and my photos are, of course electronic. Any feedback would be helpful. I'm looking at William Shunn, nothing specific to non-fiction. I think where the magazine is vague, I'll just follow basic short story form. Anyone see issues with that?
