The deadline for submission is next Tuesday, 10 March 2015.  Submit articles via email to wingspan@flwg.us and cc to me at tylerlahnen@flwg.gov.  Please remember the magazine is sent to non-members, so use plain speak- no technical terms or abbreviations a non-member wouldn't recognize.  General articles may be up to 2 pages and must include between 1 and 5 high definition, color photographs (remember to include a caption and photo credit.)  Articles should be submitted in an editable word document with pictures attached as separate files.  Do not imbed pictures into word documents.  Submissions are welcome from all members, cadets and seniors.  Please ensure approval is granted from your commander prior to submission. 

If you have an idea for a feature article or cover story, please contact me ASAP.  There are no size limitation on these, but must be arranged and agreed on in advance.

NOTE:  WingSpan ONLY publishes original, fresh material.  Please do not submit articles that have been previously published by internal CAP sources (Online News, Volunteer Now, unit websites or social media) or external media outlets.

Thanks you in advance for helping to make this edition of WingSpan Magazine, the Official Publication of Florida Wing, Civil Air Patrol, the best yet!  For questions, email wingspan@flwg.us.
