Tutorial Submission Information

 

Click here to print your Submission Form to send in by mail with your labeled cd.

The Flow's indepth tutorials teach our readers techniques that will inspire and encourage them to develop their own ideas and style. Tutorials should feature a new glass working technique, combinations of existing techniques used in original ways, or a new tool or process that produces exciting results. We include as many and as wide of a variety of creative projects that space and editorial focus will allow in each issue. We accept a broad range of original projects ranging from beginner to advanced-levels.

1. Please send all items below in one text file saved as an rtf (rich text format) file:
s Introductory paragraph stating the theme or inspiration for your idea
s Materials listing (brand names may be included where necessary)
s Clear instructions for each step and the name of the photo that corresponds with that step
s Artist Biography (125-150 words)
2. One photo for each step (2 photos may be sent only if necessary for the step)
3. Finished photos of your project taken from different angles
4. (optional) Photos of variations or tips to inspire our readers imaginations
5. (optional) Photo of yourself or your recent work
6. completed Submission Form

Please clear your bench or table of any unnecessary tooling or material. Clutter takes attention away from the process you are photographing. Please shoot illustrational photos that have a clean, white background. White drywall board or homisote board is excellent for this purpose, or you can use noncoated paper remnant rolls that you can obtain from a local printer. Remember to start with a fresh paper for each project. Caution: Do not use a glossy paper for the work area as the reflection will likely show up in the photographs. It is important that the shots for each project have the same background tone or tint throughout that project, if possible.

When photographing how-to's, for best results take the photo outside of the flame so detail of the progression of the piece can be seen more clearly. Do not include blurry photos. Make sure there is a photo to accompany each step. Include as many views of the finished piece as possible, from all sides as well as top and bottom.

Please indicate where the photos should ideally be placed in the text by inserting each photo number in parentheses at the correct position within the text. Assign each image a number that corresponds to the step where it should be placed in the how-to instructions.

 

Please mail your submission to:
