Publish Your Story at AltEnergyMag
We're changing the way we distribute stories in order to spread the word faster. From now on we'll publish new articles every week or so. The process is very simple. Just email the article (email@example.com) along with any diagrams, photos etc. that you wish to have included. Length is not restricted. We do all the formatting and title graphics etc. and then let you preview the finished product before it goes live. Biographies and company links can also be included.
Please bear in mind that we seek educational articles focusing on the technologies and benefits to readers rather than simple product cut sheets and promotional material.
As soon as you send the article we will get it ready and send you a link to preview before it goes live. It will go online (on the home page) as soon as we receive approval and stay in our library forever. It will still be included in our bimonthly eMagazine which is a compilation of recent articles and may be featured in this newsletter.
