SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

writing sample- format question

Discussion started on


I'm submitting my first article queries this week by email (for FACES and APPLESEEDS).  My most relevant published writing samples are newspaper articles, but they were written three computers ago and I do not have Word/text files.  Could I scan and submit an image or .pdf of the actual printed article, or should I re-type the articles in Word?  Thanks for any advice.

Magazines typically expect to see clips - the actual printed piece, not a word file. So I'd say scan or PDF.

Thanks very much, Joni.  I appreciate how helpful this board is to newcomers!
