Please include your name and VID in the upper-left of the first page, create a title, and use Times New Roman font at size 12. Before uploading your submission, save the file in either Word (.doc or .docx) or Rich Text Format (.rtf) using the following file-name nomenclature:

lastname_firstname_submissiongenre.

Here's a couple of samples: smith_mary_poetry.doc or johnson_tony_scholarlyessay.doc.

If you're submitting a research essay, be sure to include your Works Cited or Bibliography and use a consistent in-text citation system throughout (MLA, APA, etc.).

NOTE: If your work is selected for publication, the Fallero editors reserve the right to edit it for punctuation/grammar errors.

Photography & Fine Art Submissions:

First, be sure your image's ppi (pixels-per-inch) is at 72. To do this using Photoshop, follow these steps: How to Set Your PPI to 72.

Next, save your image file in either TIFF or PDF format. Here's how to do so in Photoshop: How to Save Your Image Files.

When naming your file, please use the following file-name nomenclature:

Here's a sample: rodriguez_tonya_photography.tiff or marano_jose_fineart.pdf.

Do You Plan on Scanning a Print Photograph or Artwork?
