Many of the articles in Connect are designed around a theme, though not all. If you have article ideas on the theme, write " article proposal" in the e-mail subject field, and send an outline and opening paragraph by the deadline to Michaels@impressionmediagroup.com. If you have ideas on a non-thematic topic, send an e-mail with "non-thematic article proposal" in the e-mail subject field.

N.B. They will allow authors (in fact, they actually actively encourage them) to seek publication of the article(s) in other print and electronic venues, provided it's attributed to Connect.
