Please include your name, address, telephone number, and email address; typed at the top of the first page. Contributors are asked to include a brief biographical note with their submissions.

Word Count

All paid contributions are for feature articles in PRIMO. The number of words in a manuscript should range from 800 to 2,000.

Photographs

Photographs should be submitted in high resolution 300 dpi, in JPEG format. If you send hard copy photographs, please note that PRIMO will not return your photographs and/or manuscript or other material.

Simultaneous Submissions are Acceptable but Exclusivity is Preferred

Although we accept multiple submissions, preference is giving to exclusivity. Thus, if you are submitting your article exclusively to PRIMO then you have a better chance of getting the article published in PRIMO.

No Submission Fees and No Kill Fees

PRIMO neither charges the writer a reading fee to review his/her manuscript nor does PRIMO pays the writer a kill fee if the article is not published.
