Submit an Article – Crusadefront
Crusadefront is grateful to readers who want to share their opinions on any topic. Here on this page we will review what applies to Crusadefront submitters and how your submission should be designed.
Who is allowed to submit?
Everyone may write a submission to Crusadefront. Even opponents can have their emails published on Crusadefront.
Letters/articles and news
A letter is a personal and enjoyable text. A person who writes a letter does not pronounce himself on behalf of Crusadefront but usually expresses his or her own opinions. Submitters differ from the news texts Crusadefront publishes during the editorship. A news text does not contain own opinions and reflections in the same way as an insider does. Those who instead of submitters are interested in writing news texts can contact Crusadefront’s news editor at [email protected]
It is a good idea to write under a pseudonym, but Crusadefront prefers to write letters in your own name as this gives more weight to the views. If you type in your own name, it is more likely that a controversial sender is released than if you are writing a pseudonym. In some cases, the editors may also require that the identity of the person who wrote a sender is known to us even if the sender is published under the pseudonym. This is especially true of controversial submitters if there are no direct artefacts with the sender, we do not necessarily need to know who the writer is.
What should a letter contain?
A letter contains, in addition to the author’s name/pseudonym, a title, entry, image and breadth. You, as a writer, write headline and bread text. The bread text is the main text that constitutes the actual sender. At the top of an article, before the breadth text, there is an entry that serves as an introduction and summarizes the sender’s main message. If the writer wants to write an own proposal for input, otherwise the editor will solve it when the sender is published.
What remains is to choose at least one image for the sender. Images are necessary for an insider to be published on the warrant. If no image is attached to the writer, it may mean that the sender is instead published in the notepad where an image is not necessary. Even less important image submitters will be published as notices. Choosing a good image is important as it raises interest and sets the tone for the sender. In addition to the main image published on the cover letter and at the top of the sender (directly under the entry), you can have more pictures posted in an insider, but it is usually enough with a picture – especially if the sender is short.
Images and copyright
It is important that images published in a letter are free license to avoid copyright infringement:
Crusadefront recommends everyone to search images on Pixabay and attach links to the images you want to include in your letter. The responsibility for image searching, therefore, lies primarily on you as a writer, but to cut the image to the correct size, the editorial staff manages.
Language and Grammatical Tips
There are some common errors that we want everybody who writes learn to avoid:
- Run-on Sentence or Comma Splice: A run-on sentence is a sentence that joins two independent clauses without punctuation or the appropriate conjunction. A comma splice is similar to a run-on sentence, but it uses a comma to join two clauses that have no appropriate conjunction.
- Mistakes in Apostrophe Usage: Apostrophes are used to show possession. However, you do not use an apostrophe after a possessive pronoun such as my, mine, our, ours, his, hers, its, their, or theirs.
- Lack of Subject/Verb Agreement: When speaking or writing in the present tense, a sentence must have subjects and verbs that agree in number. If the subject is singular, the verb must be singular. If the subject is plural, the verb must be plural as well.
- Misplaced Modifiers: To communicate your ideas clearly, you must generally place a modifier directly next to the word it is supposed to modify. The modifier should clearly refer to a specific word in the sentence.
Submit a completed letter
Read through your own letter once or twice and remove any errors you find before submitting it to Crusadefront. Another trick may be to let a comrade read through and comment on the letter before submitting it. Submitters with too many language errors will be rejected, as well as submitters who strongly deviate from the above instructions. Completed letters are sent to [email protected]
