The Psion Guild Needs Articles

We need well-written educational and training articles on a variety of topics. Many categories in our articles area stand empty--some surprisingly so.

If you are considering writing an article, here are a few guidelines:

A) No offense, but we are picky. If you don't think you're a decent writer with a good grasp of grammar and spelling...don't bother. Quality over quantity, we aren't looking for filler. We want something that a college English teacher would accept--not something a High School English teacher would grade "B". This means we may reject your article if it's not well-written enough for our standards. Don't be offended by this, it isn't personal--as I said, we are picky. Please have a GOOD grasp of the subject you are writing about. If you've only been practicing for a year, chances are low that you have a well-rounded understanding of any psi-related subject.

B) Try to stick to one subject. If you're writing about psychokinesis, don't drift off into telepathy. This helps us organize our articles so that people can find the information they are interested in more quickly.

C) Don't assume your reader knows what you know. Explain terms that you use, explain foundations that things are built on. Give how-to information on steps leading up to more intricate things. Unless you are specifically writing an advanced article, aim your writing at newbies.

D) Don't editorialize, unless you are specifically writing an editorial. IE, it's fine if you think that a certain use of an ability is unethical--but your opinion on ethics doesn't belong in a how-to article. Even more important, your view on religion doesn't belong in a how-to article. You may write an editorial on that subject as a seperate document if you feel a need to.

E) Submit your completed article via e-mail to Kitsune, Winged Wolf, or Firestorm. We will read it over, and may make suggestions for improvements. Do not expect that you will never have to revise the document. If you aren't willing to revise it, don't submit it. Once it meets our approval, we will have it voted on, and then post it on the site.

---------------------------------------------------------------

At present, we specifically need more how-to articles on physical abilities such as psychokinesis. We don't have a single PK article yet!

Oh, and by the way--"Pardon the Dust" in our articles area. The coders are working out some issues. The articles are all there and accessable, but you may find some empty categories here and there.
