Text-Based Project Proposal Guidelines

Completed proposals must include:
- A cover page including the authors’ names, a 60-word biographical statement for each, postal and email addresses, (mobile) telephone numbers, and the entire submission’s word count (including notes and captions)
- A second page that lists the title and a 250-word abstract of the proposed piece (Note: Unless the submission is intended for the Conversations category, this page should not mention the authors’ names in case the proposal advances to peer review)
- The full text, including in-text illustration thumbnails (Note: Unless the submission is intended for the Conversations category, these pages should not mention the authors’ names)
