Guidelines for submissions

The high quality content is what makes the Boston Bimmer fun to read. Our content sets the Bimmer apart from the other chapter newsletters. However, you don't have to be a professional writer to make a submission. The Editor encourages all members to get involved, and tries to print all appropriate and timely submissions to the Boston Bimmer. The Editor does not guarantee that all submissions will appear in the Boston Bimmer, but will make a reasonable effort work with members to include their submissions. All submissions are subject to final editing and photo selection by the Editor. Submissions will usually appear in the first or second issue following submission. If material is held for a longer period of time, the contributor will be contacted. Contributors will be notified if their submission is not deemed appropriate for publication.
