Article Submission Guidelines
HMI board members assume responsibility for publishing Historic Madison: A Journal of the Four Lake Region. Funds do not allow for an annual edition, but we are trying to maintain an 18-month schedule. Copies are free to HMI members and sold to the general public.
- Be between 1,000-8,000 words in length
- Be related to some aspect of Madison area history
- Be about a subject that occurred at least 40 years ago
- Provide or identify possible locations of photographs or illustrations related to the article
Articles will be fact-checked for historical accuracy.
While we cannot pay for articles, authors will receive a byline and biographical sketch. Authors will also receive three copies of the Journal containing the article.
