Q: How do I join Alte?

A: Send a paragraph (maximum of 200 words or less) about your thoughts/research regarding chocolate pancakes to alte.sententiam@gmail.com with the subject heading “Application.” Be sure to include your full HOL name.

Q: What's with the chocolate pancakes?

A: It makes sure you really want to join Alte. And that you're paying attention to the application form. Plus, Cassie has a craving for them at the moment.

Q: Can I be an editor?

A: Positions for anything other than writers (editors, webmasters, etc.) will be announced in the Alte forum when there are openings and we’ll tell you how to apply there.

Q: What if I want to write for Alte, but I'm not sure I'll have the time?

A: That's why we have guest writer positions. Just send us your articles whenever you have them done, no application or anything. They have to be approved just like staff writer articles, though, so be sure to check with Chloe or Cassie.

Q: What should I write about?

A: Anything you like. Whatever interests you at the moment. Something you’ve always wondered about. A subject you’re studying in school. Anything goes, as long as it’s HOL appropriate. If you’re stuck for ideas, talk to one of the editors. We can help you get ideas.

Q: Does my topic need to be approved?

A: Yup. Send your topic to either Chloe Fairchilde or Cassandra Lobiesk for approval before you write it. You can PM or email us.

Q. How long does my article need to be?

A: As long as you need it to be. Seriously. It can be anywhere from a paragraph or two (300 words-ish) to several pages. Keep in mind how much you need to write to cover the subject, and how much people really want to read. If you’re looking at an epic, that’s great, talk to us about turning it into a series.

Q: When do I need to have my article in?

A: Well we’d like staff writers to have an article in for every publication, but we understand that real life happens, and if it’s not in on time, that’s ok, we can put it in the next one.

Q: Where do I submit my article?

A: Send your article to alte.sententiam@gmail.com. Be sure to include the title in the email, and your full HOL name, so we know who to credit. Don’t forget to include your references.

Q: What kind of references should I use/include?

A: You can use the internet, your local library, encyclopedias, whatever. Just be sure to include links to any sites you used, or the titles and authors of any books that you've alluded to.

Q: How often is Alte published?

A: Alte will be updated/published approximately every other month. Depending on the number of issues received, however, there might be the case that an issue will come out in the consecutive month.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email either Chloe Fairchilde or Cassandra Lobiesk at alte.sententiam@gmail.com.
